I am a fan of all things English, their literature, china and accents! It never fails when I hear an English accent I automatically want to stop and listen. (my Siri is English) I fancy their food and traditions. I love Downton Abbey. I wish I coud have tea everyday while enjoying a beautiful view of majestic landscaped gardens.
Although, I do enjoy tea every day, my castle is a little rental home in Corona, and my garden view is raised boxes full of vegetables in a dirt backyard. Obviously, my life is quite different from the romantic English life I read about or watch in films.
The United Kingdom has one other thing that I covet greatly and that is their government protects their people by banning harmful GMOs, and other harmful additives in food products. The food industry can not sell their harmful products in the U.K., so they modify it. Unfortunately, for us here in America the harmful stuff is sold without any regard for our health, and our good friends in Europe get the healthy options. If you follow my post you know I don’t eat any of these products anymore, but why can’t we have the European products that have less chemicals? ($$$$$$$$)
This is so frustrating! I really think everyone should follow Food Babe’s investigations. When I read the research on the FDA it’s insane to see what they consider is safe for consumption. I am shocked! They simply do not care about the harmful effects these products have on Americans.
There is a lot of information out there for us to learn from, we must become pro-active. Another good read is, 10 American Foods that are Banned in Other Countries.
The best solution to this problem is to eat only organic food and avoid fast food. It is possible. Everyday I am reaping the benefits of this! I know this seems hard for some, but small changes can make a big difference in your health.
I love living in the U.S. I want to be a part of the change that I want to see! It is crazy to live in such a free country, yet have a basic human right like the quality of our food, be toxic! Change CAN happen!!!!!
