My plan is to grow spiritually and that is what I have been working on since I came into this world. I have to say that I never really thought that the food we eat would play such a large role in my enlightenment journey and I never really cared much about it until a friend suggested I watch this documentary, Food, Inc. I watched it with my husband and I felt sick to my stomach when it was over. I couldn’t believe that something so essential and so important as our food is being genetically modified and made into something completely different than what Mother Nature intended. I felt betrayed, but I thought I had better research a little just to make sure.
I can’t believe that I didn’t know these things before but I am glad I do now. It has completely changed the way I look at food. It was like a light had been switched on inside of me. I never have thought much about the food I was eating before. It was always so convenient and cheap to run through a drive thru after work or to grab a TV dinner on my way out of the store. After this documentary and the research I did, I can no longer keep putting these chemicals and pesticides into my body. In my town it can be hard to find organic, non-GMO food but luckily the grocery store that I work in carries some organic food, or I fear I may have starved at the beginning. I just couldn’t put those bad foods in my mouth again and I would almost rather eat dirt than to keep shoveling that CRAP into my mouth. In just a little over two weeks I have lost about ten pounds but more importantly I think I may have to cut my blood pressure medicine in half, at least for now. I hope to be off of it completely here pretty soon. I was feeling weird today at work and thought I would go check my pressure. It was 106/70. That is the lowest I have ever known my readings to be. I usually sit at around 160/90 or higher. I never thought I would see changes this fast. It really has nothing to do with the weight or even the blood pressure. For me the idea of genetically modifying a natural plant and putting viruses, bacteria and animal stuff into it seems WRONG to me. It just feels very WRONG. The idea of taking a normal chicken and pumping it full of hormones and antibiotics seems wrong. Feeding cows genetically modified corn feels wrong. I think that we, as a people, need to demand that we aren’t fed a load of crap and chemicals. We need to demand that our money goes to food that isn’t going to kill us and make our children’s children sterile.
If you want to remain in the Matrix then don’t watch this movie. It very well may change the way you think, eat and live.I hope it does.
