Hey Everyone! I’ll be out doing some Black Friday shopping – followed by some Black Friday napping!
Here is some Food for Thought on a holiday weekend all about Food!
This quote is so thought-provoking I didn’t want you to miss it:
From Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals”:
“Just the other day, one of the local pediatricians was telling me he’s seeing all kinds of illnesses that he never used to see. Not only juvenile diabetes, but inflammatory and autoimmune diseases that a lot of the docs don’t even know what to call. And girls are going through puberty much earlier, and kids are allergic to just about everything, and asthma is out of control. Everyone knows it’s our food. We’re messing with the genes of these animals and then feeding them growth hormones and all kinds of drugs that we really don’t know enough about.
And then we’re eating them.
Kids today are the first generation to grow up on this stuff, and we’re making a science experiment out of them. Isn’t it strange how upset people get about a few dozen baseball players taking growth hormones, when we’re doing what we’re doing to our food animals and feeding them to our children?”
