Hungry for Change

“How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?”

I was having my afternoon lunch at work today and I noticed a little advertisement on the top of my Stonyfield Farms Organic Yogurt. It was an ad for a movie that was released in theaters this last month (June 09). The film is titled Food, Inc. I am very interested and excited about this film coming out. Regardless of what it does or does not cover, the point to be made is that we as a community and as a nation don’t just need improvements made to our health care system, but also a simpler, more economical, and/or natural alternative/mind-set to what is truly healthy care.

Another movie to see that actually has been out for a little while is The Business of Being Born. A must see for all audiences: close-minded and/or favorable. Check it out.

Moral of the Week: We must feel comfortable and honest when talking to our doctors. We should see specialists when we are concerned and/or feel that we may have a distinct disorder. Talk to your pharmacists and chiropractors ... nutritionists and neighbors. Let these individuals know that you are interested in the most natural approach to treatment/therapy. Remember that those of us who choose to put our care into a professional's hands are also putting trust in that person’s beliefs on how the job is to be done.

Additionally, I would like to mention that for future postings I hope to clarify the specifics on what “I consider” is important to look out for in grocery ingredients.
