The "food" industry: How will it effect us?

2 years, 3 months ago

This is just one aspect of our lives that is often overlooked for convenience. Agrochemicals, GMOs, and lots of other shit has been fed to us. The industry has gotten significantly worse over the last half-century, especially with hypercapitalism becoming the norm. What are the effects on our minds, bodies, and souls?

Why don’t you experiment with it yourself?

I started with an experiment on caffeine.
I eat roughly the same before dinner every day (which is important in experiment, to keep the other variables the same), but now I supplemented it with 1 cup of cappuccino.
Coffee and substances like it, for me causes: my intestines to hurt, makes my poop thinner and makes me want to take a shit.
It also makes me more alert, focused and gives me more energy.
This has happened to me every time before, so I assume that it does so next time.
So, the next time I want to be more alert, focused and energized, I COULD drink caffeine.

What is your first experiment?

@jkim1233, There are countless ways GMO’s and the industrial food industry affect us. Cancer, disease, shorter life span, extinction of seed varieties. However, there is a huge local food movement in a lot of urban areas.. especially in Atlanta, where I live. My husband works for an organic farm here in town that sells at local markets and CSA’s. I think people are becoming more aware of where their food comes from and making better choices for their health. I think local markets, growing your own food, and indoor vertical organic farming in urban areas are the way of the future.

@jkim1233, FED to you?

Well perhaps by your parents. But keep in mind that you choose to go to the store and BUY that stuff. Same goes for your parents.
Nobody forced you.

I don’t eat that shit, and so the industry doesn’t affect me.
You no likey, no no eatey. Simple as that.

@manimal, @jkim1233, yes true we support this by maintaining the flux of income, stop eating it, go out of your way if the way involves eating “plastic”.

@jkim1233, you get to vote on our modern food industry a few times a day, every time you eat. If you eat fast food, or GMO’s, then you’re voting to keep the big industry in power. Eat food from local farms, and non GMO’s, and you are helping move the current state of our food in a direction most folks on this site want to see it go. Remember, your body is composed of what you put inside it.

@manimal, @seeker, @ilooklikeawaterbottle, recognize that many people are actually unaware of this issue and/or cannot afford the time/money/effort to buy non-shit foods, even though they’d probably love the chance to eat healthier (@manimal, please don’t argue this… read “The Working Poor” by David Shipler). But this isn’t about me, and the question I asked wasn’t “what should I do about GMOs?” (thanks @megndavnport!) I know you’re all just trying to help so I appreciate the advice :) but I already get the gist of supply and demand. I’m more concerned with the potential genetic effects it may have on our offspring so if anyone has significant knowledge on the subject, I’d love to hear from them. Thanks, all!
