Does Food Matter for your Health, the Planet?

by Catherine Haug, May 12, 2011

I admit, I’m into food – but it has to be good food. Not just taste good, but be made of wholesome, whole-food ingredients, prepared in someone’s kitchen (not in an industrial setting). But while I’ve always loved to eat, I’ve not always eaten as well as I do now.

When I was a young, poor, struggling graduate student, I ate a lot of cheap, junk foods: frozen TV dinners, canned soups, boxed cereals, pasteurized milk, and so on. And now I’m paying for it with health issues, which include insulin resistance (metabolic syndrome), arthritis and other inflammatory problems.

About 25 years ago, I decided to change the way I eat and take care of my body. These lifestyle changes were the beginning of my path toward sustainable living.

The changes did not reverse my problems overnight; in fact, I still have many of them. But I believe if I had NOT made these changes, my health today would be much worse than it is.

Food Matters

Have you seen the 3 minute trailer for the 90-minute movie: Food Matters?

At the beginning it makes the point: “One of the best things terrorists would do is just build more fast food restaurants… maybe add another pharmaceutical company …encourage people to eat the way they eat now. Everybody’s gonna be dead in a 100 years… They can just walk right in and don’t have to do a thing.”

You can view the trailer at You Tube: Food Matters.

About this film (from Mercola’s website):

“My good friends James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch have created an independent, scientific-based DVD documentary titled Food Matters that explores the politics and realities of food and health care.

James and Laurentine, with the help of some of the top natural health and nutrition experts in the world, escort you down a mystical “rabbit hole” to uncover startling truths about the ‘Sickness Industry’ and the ‘hushed’ alternative treatments critical for your well-being. Most importantly, they provide a radiant beacon of hope with steps you can do today to take control of your health and begin healing.

James sums it up nicely, “It’s about education, not just medication.”
