Who makes what we are eating may not mean a thing to you, but we do strive to eat healthy and when it seems like we are doing everything we can something pops up. Maybe it is raspberry flavoring coming from the behinds of an animal (you can read that here) or that farm raised salmon is somewhat pointless (read that here) but the question I always come back to is: If a large corporation owns the company why wouldn’t they put their profit-making minds to those seemingly natural and wholesome products so that they can be mass-produced and thus make more money? What would prevent a CEO from sitting at a board room table and suggesting a mass production of lentils (I am making lentil burgers for dinner and thus it is on my mind) and cutting a corner here or there so long as they stay within the guidelines of the law and sell it to the American people under the label of healthy for you and thus making a killing on it, while all the while killing the people consuming it?
Most people are not going to research where the product came from or what corners were being cut to get there. They are not going to look up what chemicals were used to spray the product so that it stays ‘fresher’ for a longer period of time. As long as its cheap and easy the masses will pay for it and move on without a care in the world.
So when I saw this picture I figured I would share it with you and let you make a decision for which company you were going to continue to support. I am not against big business in the least as I think they have a place in the his American and Global economy. They provide jobs and so they cannot be put out of business but we can make better choices on some things or we can force them to be a little more conscious of their production if we chose to keep our money in our pockets or bought elsewhere.
