I was listening to a program that Ocean Robbins
put up on the web called, “How To Get Fat Without
Really Trying”. He is the son of Baskin-Robbins
ice cream people. The video pointed out that
Americans are getting fatter and fatter, and it’s
not all our fault. Both the government and the
food industry are making things worse and they
know it. Our government subsidizes the corn
industry, the cattle farmers association as well
as the pork and poultry producers. Very little of
that money goes into producing healthy foods.
Grazed animals, like cattle, eat grass, and pigs
feed on just about anything they find like
carrion, berries, roots, and even fish or small
lizards. Neither animal normally eats corn as
their food source but are commercially corn-fed.
This can cause an imbalance in their health and
antibiotics are administered to try and keep the
animals from getting sick. Although it is much
cheaper to feed them corn, it produces a weaker
and unhealthy animal. The bad news is that you
are getting antibiotics with every bite you take.
High-fructose corn sugar (HFCS) is used as a cheap
sweetener in just about everything from soda to
candy bars. We are consuming HFCS, or sugar, in
general, in pharmacologic quantities never before
experienced in human history–140 pounds a year!
Also, high fructose corn syrup is always found in
very poor quality foods that are nutritionally vacuous
and filled with all sorts of other disease-promoting
compounds like fats, salt, chemicals, and even
I took my granddaughter and her girl friend to the
store last summer when I was in Detroit. As most
kids do, they asked me this, “Can I get something
to eat?” I said sure as long as it doesn’t have
any corn or corn syrup in it. They both ran up and
down the aisles and couldn’t find one thing to
If you are worried about that big butt and belly and
hefty thighs you’ve got, they are most likely from
eating corn. It’s the cheapest sweetener and is in
just about everything. We grow more corn in the
USA than any other country in the world, and to
make it even worse, corn is now
“genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)”. These are
living organisms whose genetic material has been
artificially manipulated in a laboratory through
genetic engineering or through traditional
cross-breeding methods. This relatively new
science creates unstable combinations of plant,
animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not
occur in nature.
There is a growing body of evidence associating
GMOs with health problems, environmental damage,
and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights.
The food industry doesn’t want you to know what
they are doing to your food! Most nations do not
consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60
countries around the world, there is an outright
ban on GMOs. If you aren’t shocked, you should be!
The food industry is not about your health. The
government isn’t on your side and, worst of all,
the drug companies aren’t either. It is a business
and you are the consumer. No one wants to lose
business. So, this goes on and on. You are getting
fat and sick and the Food Industry and Big Pharma
are getting rich and paying more lobbyists to keep
you in the dark.
What can you do?
Read labels. Don’t buy products that aren’t
healthy and read more about what you are eating.
Share this with your friends and family and pray
that we can shift from a money-making society to a
