Do we have Food Freedom? (Continued)

I told you in the first Food Freedom post that my definition of true Food Freedom was the right to Biblically steward (or manage), choose, buy, own, sell, and grow your own food that is healthy for you and those around you. I need to add to that. Food Freedom is also the right to know what is in your food and to know how it was made. Why should we care how the food is made? Aren’t all cereals (for example) made the same way? Don’t all apples, bananas, or tomatoes grow the same way? Aren’t we already told what is in the food on the ingredient list?

In order to answer these types of questions here is some logic that the food industry follows:

Imagine a cereal business. It not only must supply cereal to the buyers but needs to make enough money to do so and enough to keep/pay themselves. (Nothing wrong there, because most businesses need to do this.) But there are so many competitors within the cereal realm, how can this one company get you and everyone else to buy their product? The answer is four-fold. They make their cereal price lower then others, look better then others, cheaper to make, and taste better then others. How does the latter thing happen?

The modern food science industry has grown but in my eyes they (and a host of other realms) have taking one step forward and ten steps back when it comes to ethics. They would put mud in food if they would get one more dollar per sell of their product. They all share ideas behind our backs and it can cost lives.

In order for something to taste good, is it good for your health? No! A modern example would be smoking. Smokers says smoking feels/tastes so good, but when they continue for years they might end up with lung cancer and die from that. Another example comes from Genesis 3:6

“And when the woman [Eve] saw that the tree was good for food [Note: the term “good for food” means it was eatable, it wasn’t really bad for your healthy. Not that it was good/right to eat, because God said for Adam and Eve NOT to eat it in Genesis 2:16-17.], and that it was pleasant to the eyes [Note: “Pleasant” also means “a desirable thing.” Something to lust for or something that just looked so good, like a huge piece of chocolate cake, that Eve had to have it.], and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband [Adam] with her [Note: Eve ate the fruit and did not die physically but she and Adam died spiritually. That being said… Eve loved the taste of the fruit so much that she gave it to her husband.]; and he did eat. [Note: Adam also lusted for the fruit because he did eat.]” (If you read on you will see how God judges both of them because they disobeyed Him)

The point is that just because something looks or tastes good doesn’t mean it really is healthy for you. We need to know what is in our foods and how they are made in order to make the correct food choices.

In today’s age the reason food tastes so good is because of the food additives that are in them. If you pick up a cereal box or cocktail sauce container to read the ingredient list, you can’t! The names of the ingredients are so foreign. Like this one: Potassium Sorbate or Sodium Benzoate or High Fructose Corn Syrup. What are those things? What are they made from? Are they healthy? What are they doing in our food?

Ingredients that no one knows about are being put into our everyday food under the banner of Preservatives or Food Taste Enhancer. Really? Are they Preserving your health, are they Enhancing your foods health benefits?

Modern science has come out with something that is relatively new to most people. It is called Genetically Modified Organisms (called GMOs). What they are are laboratory created foods, i.e. foods made by making animal and plant genes by man to make a new “food.” These GMOs are increasing very fast and are being substituted in many foods for common things like corn and soy. (I will talk more about GMOs in the future but for now…) These GMOs are unhealthy for every thing that lives, yet they are put into everyday foods without any label or reference to them! Why is this? What is going on?

We need to know what is in our food and how those things are made. I plan to do a series on the worst of the worst food additives. In that series I will tell how each item is made. (Some of them might make you throw up… So stay tuned of them!)

As Benjamin Rush said:

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come
when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict
the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to
others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special
privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.”

That time is now. The food and the medical realms are turning into undercover dictatorships that are controlling how we buy our food. Rush compares the medical freedom to religious freedom. Why do you think? Because the medical realm is, deep down inside, a cult-like religion. Doctors are worshiped as all knowing men who can cure all diseases. Excuse me? Medicines are prescribed for basically everything now. Why and how did this happen? (The answer is to long for this post)

So until I do my series on food additives please read this post on EnergyFanatics.com called Food Label: How to Read Ingredient List here: http://energyfanatics.com/2009/04/23/food-label-ingredient-list/. Although their list is not very comprehensive and I believe they missed out soon very bad ingredients, this is the best place for you to start.

Hopefully some honest God-fearing people will change to food and medical realms back toward God.

Praise be to the Great Physician for all Eternity!
