Food Shaming & Bullying
“FOOD” SHAMING – BULLYING
Greater than or equal to 5 times it has been brought to my attention that my words come off as shaming-particularly when I’m talking about food and how we feed our children.
I’ve also found myself in debates or arguments about “REAL” food and many -experts- believe there is no such thing as “FAKE” food or “BAD” foods. There are only FOODS. ————— Here’s how I handle this situation. Rather than taking an anti depressant stacked with Xanax and a sleeping pill to cope with the fact that people believe and argue this case I will just write in my notes how I truly feel, post it, hope it helps a few people, then move on with life almost as if it never even happened (magical therapy without paying a therapist or pharmacy)… Some subject matter experts call this method “venting”. ————-
1.) Someone PLEASE stand up and tell me how beautiful blue, mellow yellow, radical red, and gorgeously green ARTIFICIAL colors are REAL or GOOD for us? (I’ll wait…)
2.) Someone PLEASE stand up and tell me how a chemical flavoring agent that tricks our brain into believing that we are eating fruit, vanilla, nuts, or anything the labs want for that matter (also known as AKA: artificial flavors) is considered REAL or “NOT-BAD” ? (I’m still waiting on #1….)
3.) Someone PLEASE stand up and tell me how chemicals that mimic the “sweet” sense of sugars: aspartame, saccharin aka: sweet & low, sucralose aka: Splenda, and Acesulfame potassium (to name a few) are still legal in 2019 ? Okay…. now someone tell me how these are “GOOD” or “Not-Fake” and after you explain that please tell me how it is acceptable to put this donkey poop in children’s toothpaste? Yeah the one that directly markets kids with the Elmo or Queen Elsa on front. Oh wait, it’s in Pedialyte also, the “# 1 recommended brand by doctors.” Ok, now someone PLEASE give me a list of these “doctors” who voted on this.
K…. so now that I’m onto the toothpaste… how is it bullying or shaming to tell a parent that they should throw that crap away and buy a healthier toothpaste?
Now someone please stand up and tell me how exposing this BS publicly is “shaming” or “bullying” ? Pardon me once more, but are we bullying and shaming people for speaking the truth or is society becoming overly sensitive ?
Perhaps the hormone imbalances caused by these chemicals are making us extra thinthitive. I’ll repeat something I full heartedly believe and that I’ve said multiple times. If someone feels shamed, bullied, or guilty for buying, selling, or providing FAKE, BAD, non-food like “food products” to themselves or others then that is ON THEM not ON ME for speaking the friggin’ truth and the truth remains…
THERE ARE BAD FOOD ITEMS!
THERE ARE FAKE FOODS!
THERE ARE “FOOD” PRODUCTS THAT ARE DESTROYING PEOPLE’S WELL-BEING.
THERE ARE MULTI BILLION DOLLAR COMPANIES BANKING ON POISONING US.
THERE IS A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY BANKING ON “HEALING” US AFTER WE ARE POISONED.
If you find this irrational then I’m going to be a cyber bully ( I would tell you face to face as well) and tell you that you are being oblivious and ignorant to the truth tree & though you may feel insulted at the time of reading this (because ignorant comes off as such a harsh word when it’s really not) I hope you’ll take a few steps back and recognize that there are bad, fake, unhealthy foods (even when consumed in the “proper amounts” ) and I hope we all adapt, overcome, & grow from this experience.
