The Apocalypse is Upon Us
GMO and hormone filled produce and meat to contend with and this affects us "now" as we live -- not when we're no longer here. It affects our health, our children's emotional and physical well-being. I guess you can say my new "obsession" is based on fear, or perhaps based on health - I'm not sure which. I guess it goes hand-in-hand if you're a hypochondriac: fear of getting sick - fear of dying. All relevant. I am seeing more and more people turning into "hypochondriacs" or what some would call, "health freaks". I've been doing a lot of research online and through friends who are much more knowledgable than I am about chemicals and hormones that are pumped up into our food. Kids are drinking milk that has hormones in them, causing them to have emotional issues and overdevelopment in many young girls. The antibiotics used in order to beef up the animals are consumed by...us. This is another reason why we're going to be resistant to all antibiotics pretty soon, causing us to not recover from the flu or any other type of illnesses and infections. My mantra was always, "Eh well, if this won't kill me, a Mack truck can run me over tomorrow for all I know." And while that still may be very true, why wait it out and suffer all our lives with pain, illnesses, ailments all caused by big industries trying to make a buck and pass their product off as, "food"? When children start having anxiety, depression and all sorts of emotional issues at an early age, the first thing is to go to the doctor and get what? Antidepressants! The pharmaceutical industry loves when we rely on doctors alone. Even our dog food is tainted with crap from God knows where. Vets have to make money somehow, I suppose.
What are your thoughts about our world changing? Our food changing? Our health changing?
