    Food industry – my favorite subject. I believe, that the food industry is a lot to be blamed for obesity. It constantly invents and produces new food types, which have not existed before. The results are processed foods with a lot of preservatives, artificial colors and flavors.
    For example, I have to look hard to find a desert pudding, without artificial additives, and which have only natural ingredients, such as milk, cocoa and corn starch.
    Culprits for the existence of processed foods are also consumers, who demand fast foods, convenience foods, cheap foods and specialty foods designed for children.
    Why do you think those specialty foods for children are stocked on shelves at childrens eye level?
    I am not quite sure who is to be blamed for people's obesity condition, because people demand fast food items and the industry delivers. But I am sure that the industry can produce healthier food products if it was not for Monsanto.
    Monsanto must share the blame for a lot of new, rare and unheard off diseases and syndromes. I believe these problems are the result of all those GMO chemicals, which Monsanto has designed and patented for food production, which are approved with the collusion of our health agencies and which require no labeling.
    If you have not seen the documentary "FOOD inc", it is shown on public TV networks and a must-watch video and an eye-opener for many conscientious consumers who want to have healthier families.
