"Let them eat cake!" -The Nutricide of America

Boiling frogs and counting sheep...

"Let them eat cake!"
The Nutricide of America

If I told you that Americans are being starved to death, you would probably laugh at me. So read and learn, because it is no laughing matter. I am about to show you that Americans are, quite literally, starving to death. Sure, Americans eat, even overeat, but we are still being starved to death, deliberately, at a nutritional level. So please put aside your programmed bias and suppositions of obesity, and let’s begin.

"Obesity is a mask for the horrible truth. That Americans are starving to death in a deliberate campaign of nutricide.” –JITB 01/09

Why do we eat? Energy is probably the most obvious reason. Food fuels us to carry out our daily activities. But equally important is that food is also a building block to our bodies. If you are injured, the food is what supplies the material for the body to repair itself. The same goes for illnesses and infections, along with general maintenance as old cells wear out. We need the nutrients that food provides. If the body has enough good nutrients to work with, it will throw out the trash, and install new parts to keep your body running at optimum performance. A lot of people find that if they drink a lot of orange juice during cold season to keep up their levels of vitamin C, they manage to make it through without catching a bad case of the sniffles. But of course, humans can’t eat just anything. Some things are actually poisonous to us, and will do damage. We can’t eat just one thing either. We aren’t like the Jetson’s where we can have a vitamin pill each day and be done with it. There is a loose formula that we need to follow. We don’t need to eat exactly this much of that or that much of this each day, but we do need different things, especially over time. Most officials and experts have a chart as to their own ideas of what the formula should be, and have set amounts for each of the different “food groups.” I am not here to endorse any one idea or diet over another, but the variety sets up a sort of balancing act, in which different nutrients interact with eachother. A good balance is key to being healthy.

For example, a person needs a certain amount of a certain vitamin to keep healthy, and to provide for certain functions of the body. Now let’s say that person knows their diet is severely lacking in that vitamin. So they go ahead and take a supplement pill. Yet for some reason they still wind up noticing problems associated with a deficiency of that particular vitamin. Why? Because they are probably deficient in some other area as well. Certain vitamins will not be absorbed by the body, unless other vitamins and minerals are there to stimulate the absorption. Sometimes it is the metabolization of the food source itself that is required to gain the maximum benefit of the lacking nutrient(s). What is the point of having gasoline in your tank with no spark plug to fire it? These are reasons why we don’t have a magic Jetson pill today. Nutrients are like an ingredient in a recipe. Like butter for example. Most people love butter. Crab legs dipped in butter, butter in your cookie batter, butter on your toast, yumm. But how many of us go and gnaw on a stick of butter? Not only is it not so great by itself, but it’ll shoot right through you too. Nature knew what she was doing when she put certain foods together in such a way that this nutrient was paired with that one, and in certain densities at certain ratios etc. Furthermore, humans physically adapted over time to those natural formulas present in the food sources around us. Again, the balancing act in which life flourishes.

So we see why we really can’t just eat a pill packed with vitamins to get us through. We need real foods. Not just to make our tummies happy, but of course that’s where the drive to eat seems to come in. Our tummy grumbles and our taste buds get revved up. The body calls out to the brain “feed me Seymour!” Now a starving person will eat just about anything to satisfy the belly, and the hunger that the mind is registering. But let’s say all we have is plenty of boot leather and Crisco. Sure, it’ll fill up the tummy for a while, and probably leave you feeling like you don’t want to eat ever again after a meal like that, but it won’t be long before you are hungry again. And it will be a lot sooner than if you had eaten a “real” meal of the same volume. But why would one be hungry sooner? Because your body is still calling for the nutrients that you failed to provide. Not to mention that the Crisco probably did a good job of streamlining an exit too. So how long do you think you could physically survive on a diet of boot leather and Crisco? You keep your belly full of the stuff, but what is it really doing for you?

Let’s give another, more sinister example. Let’s say you find yourself in a long-term desperate survival situation with some other people. There is no food to be had, period. Now most people would be hard-pressed to bring themselves to cannibalism to survive. So they might just wait until others began to fall by the wayside naturally, before they decided to roast their bones. But it would really be for naught that they crossed that moral boundary. If you wait until someone else starves to death, and then eat them, you will die of starvation anyway. Because the meat you have consumed has already become so nutrient deficient, that you might just as well be eating that boot leather. It might fill the tummy for a bit, but the body will still call for the nutrients that it requires to operate, to repair itself, and to fight off illness. After all, that is the real reason that we eat, to assimilate the nutrients. Now let’s say you ended up in that situation because a plane crashed or something and a few people had died in the crash. Their meat would in fact give you life, since the nutrients in it were never used up. But now let’s say that everyone is alive, and just stranded. Now you’re not gonna like this, but here it is. If you’re ever in that situation, you better be the first one to figure out what needs to be done, if you plan to survive longer than everyone else. You will have to choose who the food is going to be, long before they die of natural causes. Messed up I know, but such is life sometimes.

So, okay, where the hell am I going with this you ask? You mean you haven’t figured it out yet? What do you think Americans are eating when they eat the crap that is being pumped at us? Fat drenched, calorie laden, chemically fortified, genetically modified, flavor enhanced boot leather. Now everybody knows that fast food isn’t really good for us, with all those calories and all that fat. But it really goes a step further than that. Why do we even eat that stuff at all? Not only is it filled with crap that makes us sick, but it doesn’t even provide any real nutritional value. But of course most people don’t think that far into it. They are hungry, they eat food that tastes good. Never mind the fact that what they are eating is not even really food at all.

A person is hungry, so they stop at a fast-food place on their way to work. An hour later they are hungry again, and wondering to themselves with guilt, “Why am I already hungry again?” It is because they satisfied their stomach, but not the rest of their body. Now their body is calling for more food, to satisfy the need for proper nutrients. The sort of nutrients that provide energy, and stave of all sorts of sickness and disease. If they had a nutritious breakfast, they would not be hungry now. Instead they opted for the cheesy-sausage biscuit that shot right through them like greased lightning. To satisfy their hunger once again, they raid the box of donuts in the break room. Again, no real nutritional value, but it satisfies the stomach for a while once more. At this point, the person has probably already exceeded their proper caloric intake for the day, without even gaining any proper nutritional sustenance that the body actually requires. The person has been eating for nothing, other than to put down the creeping feeling of starvation that comes from the body calling for the nutrition that it requires. You shut the hunger up for a while, by tricking it that nutrition is on the way, but a little while later the body says “hey, where’s that nutrition you said you were sending us?!” Sometimes with ferocity so that you are even hungrier than you were originally, and then body goes into “danger” mode, storing up what it can in fat reserves because it has been warned that there is a shortage of nutrients.

Now repeat this cycle throughout the day, everyday. The person will continue to gain weight, but at the same time, the body is provided none of the essential nutrients to keep one healthy and active. So the energy level will plummet only further exacerbating the weight problem, as the body begins to shut down and go into emergency hibernation. At the same time, diseases and infections creep into a body that is too tired to fight them off now. The body stops operating efficiently leading to all sorts of disorders. Cell structure and organs begin to fail. Hence, this fat person is literally starving to death in a vicious cycle, while eating more and more to silence the alarms of starvation the body is sending to the brain. This is nutricide.

Here is a sample of what effects mineral deficiency alone can lead to…
  • Calcium - Muscle cramps or tremors, joint pains, insomnia, brittle nails, eczema, nervousness.
  • Magnesium - Muscle twitch, tremors, personality changes, depression, anxiety, irritability, PMS, gastro-intestinal disorders.
  • Iron - Anemia, constipation, brittle or spoon-shaped nails, tiredness, apathy, reduced brain function, headache.
  • Chromium - Poor glucose tolerance leading to sugar and stimulant cravings, irritability, drowsiness, need for frequent meals, poor weight control.
  • Manganese - Poor glucose tolerance, poor muscle co-ordination, dizziness or poor sense of balance.
  • Selenium - Premature aging, growth retardation, higher risk of cancer and heart disease, poor fertility.
  • Zinc - Retarded growth, poor wound healing, poor sense of taste or smell, frequent infections, stretch marks, poor fertility.
  • Vitamin C - Susceptibility to infections, easy bruising, bleeding or tender gums, difficulty shifting infections, lack of energy.

Sounds like a lot of the things we seem to be suffering en masse now, but only in the past, oh, say twenty years or so. Now the television is plastered with ads for pills to treat all these different conditions, but half the time the side effects they tell you about are either worse than the affliction, or they tell you that the medicine might even cause the condition to worsen! What the hell is the point of that? I heard an ad the other night for asthma medicine that warned the medicine could make you die of asthma! But more on that in a bit.

Okay, so fast food is really even worse for us than we thought, right? Maybe fat people really are starving to death, but they need to make the choice to stop eating fast food then. To start eating nutritious foods. Ah, if only it really were that simple. The sad truth is most people don’t even realize that what they are eating is not actually food, or if they do even to some extent, they still don’t really have the money or the time to make a change. Sure they know that fast-food isn’t really good for you, but at least it’s something to eat. So unless people are actually made aware of what is happening here, and how serious it really is, how can they be expected to make the right choices?

Add on to that the ferocious campaigns of consumerism. Americans are relentlessly subjected to the most unscrupulous methods of psychological battery to get them to buy and consume. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the advertisements and general media that tell us what to eat. We can’t say no to the newest music or electronic gadgetry. How are we supposed to stand up against something that we actually do need, like food? But even when you think you are eating food that is good for you now, you are still slowly starving to death, and being pumped full of all sorts nastiness with each bite. The meats, the vegetables, it’s all being stripped of its nutritional value, while being “enhanced” with artificial things that will kill you, as the campaign mounts to shift everyone over to a diet of pre-packaged meals. I know what you’re thinking. “I dunno, this sounds a bit far fetched.” Well, let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?

Let’s look at some foods that you might think are good for you. A box of cereal perhaps? Not some kid cereal, like Cocoa Pebbles say, that we know is not really that good for us. How about some Quaker 100% Natural Granola, Oats, Honey & Raisins? That’s sounds healthy. All those things are known to be good for us, the oats the raisins and so forth. And heck, 100% natural too! Must be good for us, right? Well, it was actually found to be the worst cereal in the supermarket that you could buy. It has twice as much sugar as the Cocoa Pebbles, and those pebbles have less fat and more fiber than the cereal that most people would think was actually good for them.

Here’s the article on that…

Of course this is only one example among a multitude. All sort of things are thought to be healthy, but really aren’t at all. Everything from “light” dressings and dairy products to pre-mixed bags of stir-fry and sautés. There are people who still think that margarine is actually better for you than butter. Are you one of those people? These products have had all their nutritional value stripped from them, and trading off some of this for some of that. And the “some of that” usually winds up being some artificial lab product that is not even food at all but a filler, a replacement for actual food. They hand you a hunk of plastic and tell you that it is cheese. You believe it because they have engineered that plastic to very closely resemble what you think of as cheese. Cheese-like color, shape, texture, smell and taste. But really, it might only be something like 10% cheese while the rest is lab-product. Think for s second, of those imitation crab legs that they sell. They have a very little bit of crab to stimulate familiarity to the human senses, but mostly it is made up of much cheaper heavily processed fish, and a whole lot of artificial additives. This is what is happening to all of our food, not just those artificial crab legs and cheese products. And at least that artificial crab has real fish in it (among other things.)

Okay, so let’s forget about stuff like that cereal and things that we already know are processed foods anyway. Let’s cut right to the chase now. People don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. If we did we’d all be a lot healthier, right? Not as much as you might think. Studies have shown a very serious decline in the nutrient levels of produce over the past half century or so. I’ve heard figures thrown around that you would have to eat seven potatoes, or ten bowls of spinach to get the same nutrition that a person would have gotten fifty years ago from a single serving. So if you have to eat seven or ten times as much these days, even of foods that are thought to be healthy, it only stands to reason that we will get that much larger doing so, trying desperately to gain nutritional sustenance. It’s really become a lesson in futility.

Now here is an article that goes right along with what I saying, and has a few figures for examples…

If you want to dig a bit deeper, here is some good, in-depth, scientific material…

Some reasons behind this loss in nutrition are all sorts of farming “innovations” that have come out in the past fifty years or so. But basically it comes down to the fact that we are being downright abusive to the Earth and her bounty at this point. We genetically modify the foods to grow bigger, faster, without stopping to consider that mother-nature already had a set formula of time vs. mass to yield the highest nutritional value. Then add to this the basic over-farming of the land itself which results in serious nutrient depletion of the soil.

Here are a few articles that I pulled up quick about nutrient depletion of the soil, and of the overall depletion of the topsoil’s very existence…

Ever see this symbol before?

That is the international symbol for food irradiation, called the Radura. Now there are rules that say they are supposed to display the symbol to customers. What I have found in my local supermarket is that the symbol is on the shipping boxes laying on the floor of the back room, but never on the sales floor. Not only that, the symbol does not actually have to be displayed at all if it is used in any sort of prepared or processed manner.

“Food irradiation is the process of exposing food to ionizing radiation to destroy microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, or insects that might be present in the food. Further applications include sprout inhibition, delay of ripening, increase of juice yield, and improvement of re-hydration. Irradiation is a more general term of deliberate exposure of materials to radiation to achieve a technical goal (in this context 'ionizing radiation' is implied). As such it is also used on non-food items, such as medical hardware, plastics, tubes for gas-pipelines, hoses for floor-heating, shrink-foils for food packaging, automobile parts, wires and cables (isolation), tires, and even gemstones. Compared to the amount of food irradiated, the volume of those every-day applications is huge but not noticed by the consumer.

The genuine effect of processing food by ionizing radiation relates to damages to the DNA, the basic genetic information for life. Microorganisms can no longer proliferate and continue their malignant or pathogen activities. Spoilage-causing micro-organisms cannot continue their activities. Insects do not survive or become incapable of proliferation. Plants cannot continue the natural ripening or aging process.

Food irradiation is currently permitted by over 40 countries and volumes are estimated to exceed 500,000 metric tons annually world wide.”

That quote is form the Wikepedia article on food irradiation, found here…

In other words, irradiation actually kills your food. You could have a head of lettuce that sits in your fridge for a year, and still looks perfectly healthy. Imagine how healthy that would be for you to actually eat though. Not to mention that it begs the question, what good does it really do to eat it even when it is “fresh” once it has been treated in such a manner? So much for the real “healthy” foods I guess. Sure, it’s probably still a lot better to snack on some carrots than a pack of Twinkies, but not as much so as we might have thought. I can remember when I was a kid, fresh fruits and veggies were sweet, tender, and juicy. Nowadays it’s all grainy, tough, and dry. A tomato used to be red, plump, fleshy, bursting with nutritional goodness. What do you get today at the supermarket? Something that is bright orange and tough skinned enough to use as a throwing weapon, while inside it has a sickly whitish color to the grainy, watery (not to be confused with juicy) pulp. And the flavor? What flavor? What you are not tasting is the nutrition. The nutrition that happens to be the whole reason behind eating. It’s no wonder that kids today don’t want to eat their fruits and veggies. I grew up enjoying healthy natural food, but even I don’t have much use for the produce section anymore, and I genuinely miss what it used to be.

So maybe we just need to eat strictly organic foods. Stuff from local farms. Nevermind that a lot of people couldn’t really afford to make the switch, we’ll just say for the moment that they will have to. It wasn’t so long ago really that all food was organic, and you didn’t have to pay extra for it. Furthermore, there are a lot of questions and controversy around what is actually sold as “organic.” But let’s just say that for the moment, some of us do have a trusted source for organic foods. The scary truth of the matter is though, that this window is closing fast. Let me introduce you to Codex Alimentarius. This video is a bit dated now, but is well worth the forty minutes. Codex had originally planned to implement a mandate that would starve three billion people to death, and to have that mandate in place by 12/31/09. From what I understand though, they have been dealt a set-back in Europe within the last year. Here is a revealing look at Codex Alimenatrius...

Okay, so what do we know so far? We know that people are overeating because they are undernourished. This is fact based in science. I have clearly shown that our foods have been stripped of nutrients, which leads to all sorts of health problems, including overeating and obesity, by logical deduction. Now we can even take it a step further and say that some of these additives are addictive, and even induce obesity on their own. After all, if you inject a growth hormone into your food, and then you turn right around and eat it, what do you think is going to happen to you? Obesity is not the cause of these problems like we have all been led to believe. I know it’s going to be hard to wrap your head around that concept at first, but no, obesity does not cause diabetes or heart attacks, or any of the rest of the things we so often associate. Malnutrition does. If obesity were the real culprit, then there wouldn’t be the 20% of people with diabetes who are not overweight. There would not be the thin people who drop dead of a stroke or heart attack at a young age and seemingly out of the blue. Saying that obesity is the cause of these problems is like saying that coughing is the cause of lung cancer. Sure, a lot of overweight people have all sorts of other health problems, but most lung cancer patients cough and wheeze too. So treating obesity to cure other health concerns, is like giving cough syrup to the lung cancer patient. Obesity is a symptom, the most apparent symptom of malnutrition. At this point, the food we eat to satiate our hunger could be equated to drinking salty seawater to quench our thirst.

Why all the confusion then? Why all the studies that point to obesity as the root cause? Why the bias toward fat people? To keep you from waking up and realizing the horrible truth of the matter. That people are being deliberately starved to death. It’s far easier to blame the victim. Can you imagine what would happen if everyone in this country suddenly woke up and realized that the powers that be were deliberately poisoning them and starving them to death? Or what the rest of the world would think of such an agenda being perpetrated? There would be hell to pay. (Another thing to keep in mind there is that while America has the most serious problem at this point, with now 90% of the people overweight, it is not alone.) So instead we have this insidious campaign of “blame the fatties” for just about everything from our economic woes, to quality of life issues, to the very safety of our families. A psychological campaign of mass hypnosis through the media that plays off of our fears. At the same time we are bombarded with all sort of propaganda to consume, consume, consume. Every level of trickery is used in the media to get us out there to buy, and to consume. Make that chain restaurant look like a good time with friends and family. Buy those toaster pastries and pizza snacks that kids love, so that your kids will love you. Doesn’t that McSammich just look so steamy and delicious on your TV screen? You gotta love all those food and cooking shows that have become so popular in the past few years. Make it not only socially acceptable, but make you look and feel like the outcast for not participating. What kind of good citizen would you be if you had never heard of Emeril?

Choosing healthy food now called a mental disorder...

Speaking of which, I just so happen to have a video clip that makes a great example of the hypocrisy, in a blatant and sickening display of propaganda at work. Anthony Bourdain has a food show on the Travel Channel. Keep that in mind when you watch this clip. This guy is railing against his own bread and butter, and the majority of Americans...

Okay, so that wasn’t really enough to piss you off? You maybe sort of agreed with them. Nugent I would even expect that sort of thing from. Maybe this will get under your collar a little better. Here is a ten minute video that is centered on the Bovine Growth Hormone being pumped into dairy cattle. Now that issue is bad enough by itself, but what is even more revealing in this clip is how the media operates…

Okay. So now we see that not only is there scientific and physical basis for my claim that obesity is a symptom of systematic starvation, but we see a strong psychological campaign to confuse the issue and perpetuate the condition through deflection and head-on enticement. The mind and the body are covered now. So what’s left? The soul? Well who needs a soul when you’ve got money? Let’s have a look now at the economic aspects here.

Money could be considered a strong motivating factor here for all of this. It sheds some light on why anyone would want to do this to the people, and who would actually be behind such an insidious agenda. Now keep in mind that money is only a means to an end though really, with that end being raw power. After all who needs money to buy a house in town, if you already control the town? But more on that in a bit.

Let’s just stay focused on the economics at work here for the moment. The powers that be are reaping enormous profits from this. Not only are they maximizing their profits by diluting the food supply with artificial additives and a strip-mining mentality, they are profiting by inducing social gluttony. And then in turn, they are profiting from the price that must be paid for that gluttony that they have induced. They profit from all of the useless diet plans, from all the supplements that are supposed to help us stay healthy, and most chillingly from the disorders and illnesses that they are the very cause of. They rape us in medical expenses. People get sick and they head off to the doctor. The doctor sells them some pills to treat one symptom, then some more pills to treat the side effects of the first pills and so on, but never bother to treat the root causes. Remember what I was talking about earlier with the TV ads for medicine? But a doctor is actually pretty powerless to actually treat the root causes themselves, they are just another cog in the wheel too, and aren’t about to turn our entire socio-economic structure in its head. The years go by and a person is deeper and deeper into the web, popping all sort of pills, going for all sorts of procedures and treatments, but never really getting better. In fact they are getting worse, they are after all, slowly dieing of nutritional starvation. Eventually the medical bills get real big. Organ transplants, long hospital stays. And what happens if the money runs out? You die. Like a vampire, the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries have taken everything of value from the dieing, but kept him alive long enough to hyper-extend his credit, to give up his house, to give up his pension, etc., so that he has nothing to leave to his children, all in desperation to simply stay alive.

Now let’s really drop the hammer and have a look at the bottom of the economic pyramid. Where the dead man’s kids and grand-kids have wound up, because they were left nothing and all the work has been shipped overseas. What happens to the person who doesn’t have a house to put up for medical expenses, who doesn’t have a pension, or a job? They will really suffer the brunt of this all. They will be the sickest. They will be the first to die. They will also be the fattest. They will suffer the ridicule of both poverty and obesity while in the death-lock of an impossible situation. They are the canary in the coalmine. They are also a vehicle by which the powers that be are able to suck even more money out of the working man’s pocket, by subsidizing the elite’s own profiteering scheme.

After seeing this chart, ask yourself this. What is easier to believe? That Americans have simply decided in the last few decades to eat more than they should, to eat foods they should not, and to stop being active? All while knowing that it might kill them? Or, that Americans have been restricted from access to healthy foods which have now been replaced by modified foodstuffs? That they have been psychologically manipulated into accepting the change in diet, and have lost much of their ability to be active as a result? You might also notice, if you were to correlate the data above with poverty figures, the states with the highest poverty rates lead the way on obesity rates as well. So is that because poor people are just lazy? Which is really the cause, which is the effect? The fact of the matter is that poor people are less able to buy and prepare nutritious foods than anyone else in this country, and are therefore much more likely to suffer the afflictions brought on by poor nutrition as a result, including apparent “laziness.” But keep in mind that this laziness is not some psychological manifestation or a lack of mental fortitude, it is a physical manifestation brought on by nutritional starvation.

I have had the argument many times with people who claim that it is somehow cheaper to eat healthy, to eat organic, etc. I find just the opposite to be true. They always fall back on the argument that processed foods cost more because of the extra steps it takes to do the processing, but conveniently ignore the fact that the base ingredients being used in or added to the final product are far cheaper than whole foods. Again we could use the example of the imitation crab legs to see how a processed food is actually cheaper than the whole food. Processed foods also have a longer shelf-life and are stored more easily, allowing for greater long term market flexibility. Also, processed foods are sold in greater quantity, further lowering the consumer price. It is cheaper to eat foods that have little or no nutritional value.

Double-stack cheese burger (135g each) x 2 = $2
Chili = $1.19
TOTAL = $3.19

Stop & Shop Supermarket
Half-pound bologna = $1.40
Quarter-pound american cheese = 1.38
One can soup = $1
TOTAL = $3.78

So where does the poor person take their five-spot when they get hungry? Also note that bologna sandwich is probably just as bad for you as the Wendy’s cheeseburger. It would only be that much more expensive to buy something like natural turkey or some such. Notice also that the grocery list does not even include the bread or condiments. So we can even take this a step further. Anything that you prepare at home is going to have additional “hidden” costs beyond the purchase price as well. Everything from condiments and pantry items to the utility expense of the cooking source, to the cleanup costs, all have to be factored in. Water, especially hot water is not free. Neither is some cooking oil or a spoonful of butter, some seasonings maybe, mayo for your sandwiches, etc. Then there are other odds and ends like detergent, paper towels, even the electric to run the lights in your kitchen, and the refrigerator to store your foods. All the overhead expenses that you have to carry yourself when eating at home, but the costs of which are not really carried on to any particular consumer when they eat out because of the volume of the business.

Now on top of that, also consider that the poorest of the poor in America may not even have a place to cook or to store food at all. They won’t be able to take advantage of bulk pack savings, and will rely entirely on prepared foods. If you are living on the streets, in a car, in a shelter, or even in a motel room, you’re not really going to be able to prepare nutritious meals for yourself on a regular basis. You will go back and forth between the dollar menus. Also consider that many people are forced to live off food that is donated at food pantries. Lots of things like ramen noodles and canned meats that are really terrible for you. So while the person, who is already destitute because of flawed national economic policy and events beyond their own control, gets fat and sick on the only “foods” that are available to them, they have to sit there and listen to people a little further up the ladder blame them for everything that is wrong with the world and poke fun at them for being fat.

But let’s go ahead and take a step back up the ladder now. How many families today actually sit down every night to a home cooked meal? Not very many, even if there are some families who still manage to sit down together even a few days a week, it is usually around a take-out pizza, or some pre-packed frozen family entrée or some such. Even if they had some time to prepare a better meal, they don’t seem to have the time to plan that meal, and to really shop carefully for the healthiest food available. Everyone is on the run. You have both parents working all the time, kids running in and out with their own activities, run run run, go go go, and yet everyone is still getting fat. No one wants to come home and cook or shop on their one day off a week after putting in ten and twelve hour days. Everyone is stuffing themselves with hot pockets and cheeseburgers on the go until they finally burn out on the energy drinks that have reeked havoc on their system but kept them running into overtime while starvation set in, like burning high octane in a motor without any oil left in it.

So this really is getting to sound like some whacked out conspiracy theory at this point huh? Talking about starving to death half the world’s population and all. But forget about what you think is likely or reasonable for a moment, suspend emotionally based and thoroughly propagandized disbelief, and look at the evidence. We see the symptoms of this happening all around us, yet we fail to accept what is happening right in front of us. Here is another interesting tidbit as well. Ever heard of the Georgia Guidestones? Not many people have really. But someone went to a lot of trouble and expense to erect this enigmatic monument in Elberton Georgia back in 1979. It is clearly and literally written in stone, as their very first order of business, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”

Okay, now that’s creepy. Why the hell would anyone want to kill so many people? Power. Control and power. “They” have an image for the world in which there is no room for the rest of us.

In summary, obesity is a deadly epidemic being perpetrated deliberately against the population, while insidiously profiting from and turning the blame onto the victims. We are being chemically, psychologically, socially, and economically fattened and starved at the same time. What better camouflage than obesity, to hide a campaign of starvation. Think of how different our perception would be of the death camps in World War Two, if the prisoners had been plied with foods that would fatten them up but still left them starving to death. But despite all the evidence and logical deduction that I have presented here, still it is not enough to awaken the sheep. There will still be those who argue, that obesity is a matter of poor personal choices and that it is as simple as that.

Supporting material that I have found since the original publication of this article in 2008:

Junk food-addicted rats chose to starve themselves rather than eat healthy food...

Media controversy...

Drug companies pay 17,000 U.S. doctors, report finds

More than 17,000 doctors and other healthcare providers have taken money from seven major drug companies to talk to other doctors about their products, a joint investigation by news organizations and non-profit groups found.

Happy and Sad

Happy and Sad

I am happy,
But I'm also sad

I got some food,
But it was bad

My pants had holes,
But I got them patched

Then someone stole them,
And the shirt that matched

I have no home,
But I do have a car,

Too bad without fuel
I won't get very far

Had a 4.0 in college,
Even made the front page

Gee I wish I had a job,
Making minimum wage

At least I've got my health,
Well just about

Had two strokes,
And my teeth ripped out

Got a free tube of toothpaste,
To keep the keepers white

Too bad I ate the whole tube,
For dinner last night

A new bar of soap,
Scrub a dub dub

I use the sink at the gas station,
Instead of a tub

They say to be thankful,
For all that you have,

I guess that's why,
I'm both happy and sad
