Over the past century, the manner in which we grow and manufacture our food has changed dramatically. Farming has definitely made some remarkable improvements, but it may be time to return back to the basics.
Our foods are now highly processed and filled with sodium, trans fats, preservatives, and flavor enhancers! All of this provides a long shelf-life and addictive flavors. Yet, all of this has been done for the benefit of food manufacturers and their profits. If we choose to consume unhealthy products, food manufacturers profit from our decline in health and possibly induce addictions due to their artificial ingredients.
The Organic Trade Association states it well with their creative video – Store Wars.
