Mrs. Hari did a great job explaining how some corporate food giants routinely add antibiotics to livestock such as chicken and cattle, usually on company owned or company sponsored farms. This makes the livestock bulk up quicker so that it can be slaughtered sooner and shipped to market. Some in the restaurant industry adds MSG and other nasty chemicals to our food in order to preserve it, stabilize it, change its color, texture or consistency, add color or whatever other goal they have in mind to get the average Joe Schmo to eat their toxic concoctions.
Monsanto manufactures and markets Roundup, a weed killer that's been around since 1970 (according to Wikipedia), and it's used on many farms around the world. With bulk supplies and different variations of pesticides being used on crops (no matter who manufactures them), you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the possibility these chemicals can leech into and contaminate the very food we're eating or you're feeding your family.
We now have genetically modified plants grown from seeds which have the unnatural ability to resist certain pests. Once crops are harvested and processed into commercially available food, it can have any number of additives contained within that ultimately entices us to eat whatever is placed in front of us, because it looks, smells or tastes good.
Unfortunately the only way to rid ourselves of many of these contaminates is to grow our own food or purchase it from a local farmer, farmers market or a grocer such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Thrive Market or Sprouts to name a few. Many people don't have access to these specialty grocers because they're usually located in the more densely populated areas. Purchasing food that's grown naturally or raised to a higher standard usually means paying more for it, so many people choose not to buy it or can't afford it.
The book gives excellent insight into what types of food to eat and what to avoid. There's a list of suggested places to shop in person or online to purchase meat, produce or even protein products. The book is footnoted and gives sources and references for the information contained within. The forward was written by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD.
I don't mean to imply that this or any other book is perfect when it pertains to what I or anyone else chooses to eat, but this particular book interested me enough to read it and make my own decisions based on the information presented. For anyone who believes that science is infallible, medical professionals have all the answers or corporations and governments won't lie to us to achieve a particular goal, I feel they're doing themselves and possibly their loved ones a disservice.
Like many politicians, science can be, and often is motivated by money. Medical practitioners tell us this year that a food product is good for us, but next year they tell us a different story. Medical professionals and scientists can ultimately be bought. All science is not necessarily bad, but it's impossible to tell the good from the not so good when the majority of us are not scientists; especially when we're just trying to pay the bills and raise our families.
Thank goodness there are people like Vani Hari and many others like her, that do the legwork, blog and publicize the information to identify the jokers that would sell us anything as a means of enriching themselves. I know there are those who would argue that Mrs. Hari is also motivated by money because she promotes various products on her website. I would respond by saying we all need to earn a living. She has identified a niche that allows her to do just that, while also providing for her own family. Keep up the good work Vani.
