As far back as the 1930’s multiple studies showed links between cancer, heart disease and shorter life spans with smoking. Over the course of more than 40 years studies supported this. Yet the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American Medical Association (AMA) not only looked the other way they helped to promote cigarettes. It wasn’t until the LATE 70’s that it was finally admitted that smoking was harmful and caused these maladies.

Flash forward to our present day. Study after study demonstrates that our modern food is a food like substance at best. Depleted soil, nutrient depleted food, genetically modified organism’s (GMO), pesticides, herbicides, fungicides. Every year we need to spray more and more pesticides, into the millions of tons at this point. When you kill off pests only the strong survive, hence new super strains of E.Coli (here) not to mention the same effect on animals when we pump them full of antibiotics non stop.

Now we are seeing unheard of numbers of cancer (1 in 2 people will get some form of cancer) diabetes, alzheimer’s and a host of other chronic diseases. Yet when we look at the fact that we are eating overly processed nutritionally depleted food we are told there is no link, the food is safe. I’m not buying it. Food is the new tobacco, in every link of the chain from the monopolized food industry to the FDA to big pharma the fix is in, and until we stand up and say something it will never change. It will be like smoking, except this will have a much greater affect since EVERY human being eats.
