I don't get it? GMO/Organic/ Blah blah blah

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I have a few friends that clutter my Facebook wall with things about GMO foods, Monsanto, eat organic blah blah blah - You know what I have noticed though?

every single one of my friends that post about the danger of GMO foods and processed foods are.... (wait for it) SMOKERS!!

seriously? You are complaining about the chemicals in foods, but you are smoking? Really? Explain this to me please... I am just shaking my head.

No really, I am shaking my head.

I don't get it. I mean, I get being concerned about those things. I personally am not a fan of it either, but don't lecture me on how horrible it is for me to eat an Egg McMuffin with a cigarette in your hand. Seriously... don't.

    I am a former smoker! It is so awesome you decided to quit! If you ever need support, look me up!

    It is a choice you won't regret!

    Smoking is an addiction and like any other addiction such as to food it is hard to break. I quit April 2/13 because I want my surgery and I had to quit before I could be recommended for the program. It irritates me that people feel smokers have no rights to be concerned about any other health issue just because they smoke. Thats like saying someone who drinks Soda can not comment on any other health issue because they are still drinking soda. Do people who have a high BMI not have the right to be concerned about health issues because they have a high BMI? one thing has nothing to do with the other. Sorry for the rant but it gets to me how smokers are now some kind of plague on society just because they have an addiction to something that is totally legal and used to be accepted.

    What about the FB posts that are of YUMMY looking food!!!! I just quit smoking last December and have not had a soda since last August. I understand what you are saying because when I switched to soy milk, I heard that it was bad. I just keep trucking along doing what I feel is best for my body.

    You're right about the smoking, of course. But it''s true that it's really hard to find anything much resembling real food these days...

    Oh wow. Yeah, um, that's insane! I just became aware of Monsanto when I watched Food Inc. a few weeks ago and wow....the mafia is like child's play compared to this crooked organization. But even so, I'd have to say cigarettes are worse by a long shot.

    I agree. I remember years ago, I went to the gift shop of a hospital to buy a candy bar. A doctor looked at me and said "That's not good for you." He said that but I saw the cigarettes in his pocket and shook my head. He has no business saying something isn't good for me. The quack!

    I'm totally with you on that.

    If I'm eating fruits and vegetables, it's a heck of a lot better than I used to eat.
