Irrational Consumerism (or The Few Companies That Feed the World)


Not many people realize that most of the processed foods available on the market, whether they be in groceries or fast-food chains, all come from the same few companies.  Even less people realize that these companies are major actors in elite organizations who decide health, social and economic policies around the world. We’ll look at the big three companies who feed the world, their many brands and the tactics they undertake to make people crave their products.

If one were to carefully study the labels on packaged products in an average grocery store, one would probably notice that the same company names appear repeatedly: Nestlé, Kraft, General Mills and a few others. Many brands offering good ol’ fashioned homemade or all-natural/organic foods are nothing more than subsidiaries of these few world-wide mega-companies. The major difference between the main brand and the subsidiaries is packaging and advertising, which are targeted to reach different markets. In order to preserve the carefully crafted image surrounding a product, connections to the mother company are often conveniently hidden. Imagine an advertisement for bottled water going like this: “Drink pure, clear, refreshing Aquafina water, bottled with care from remote natural sources in the Himalayas … BROUGHT TO YOU BY PEPSICO, THE MAKER OF TACO BELL AND CHEETOS MIGHTY ZINGERS!” That would probably spoil the healthy, natural image they are trying to create for the product.

That is the reason marketing and branding are the most vital part of the food industry. Each product must live in its own “world”, separate from its mother company and similar products. Advertising is so powerful that two similar brands of cereal, made from the same basic ingredients, can be targeted to entirely different markets. For example, are Special K and Rice Krispies so different? From a strictly rational viewpoint, these products are nearly identical in shape, taste and ingredients. From an irrational (marketing) viewpoint however, they are in two different worlds. Advertisements for Rice Krispies revolve around colorful cartoon characters and played during Saturday morning kids’ shows while Special K tends to show fit women doing yoga (or on their way to or from yoga). Rice Krispies boxes have games and toy giveaways, while Special K‘s box gives access to a “weight loss challenge” website. All of this is smoke and mirrors, however, because at the end of the line, whether you choose one, the other or pretty much any other cereal in the grocery store, you’re eating the same thing and your money ends up at the same place.

The processed-food industry can be considered a true oligopoly. Together, the three leading food companies, Nestle, Kraft Foods and PepsiCo, achieve a dominant proportion of global processed-food sales. In fact, these three companies are often used as an example of “Rule of Three” in business schools, since they are a real-life example of a market being dominated by three gigantic actors. Their position as worldwide food providers has made these conglomerates extremely powerful, and they are represented in most elite organizations such as the Council of Foreign Relations. This not only allows them to provide their preferred policies on nutrition and health issues across the globe, but on economic, political and social issues as well. Such prominence also allows these companies to ensure their continued market dominance, through policy-making, access to insider information and the intimidation of potential competitors. If considered objectively, the oligopoly of major companies like these are a direct threat to free market theories.

Today, if a small food company were to create a new revolutionary product, it would find it difficult to obtain distribution without giving up its rights to one these conglomerates. In addition to dominating the shelves, the Big Three control most of the worldwide channels of distribution, to the point that up-and-coming companies cannot reach the consumers without dealing with them. The only way small business owners can avoid years of struggle and rejection to obtain shelf-space in supermarkets is to strike a licensing deal with one of the giants, where the owner cedes the ownership and the rights to the product in exchange for royalty checks (which are usually a small percentage of the sales). Each licensing deal consolidates these companies’ position and eliminates threats from any potential competitor who creates game-changing products.

Here are the top three companies and a summary list of their multiple brands:

1- Nestlé

Nestlé is the world’s largest food company. It has 6,000 brands, with a wide range of products across a number of markets including coffee, bottled water and other beverages, chocolate, ice cream, infant foods, performance and healthcare nutrition, seasonings, frozen and refrigerated foods, confectioneries and pet food.

Nestlé has faced ongoing resistance around the world for its promotion of breast milk substitutes (infant formula), especially in third world countries. According to campaigners, Nestlé contributes to the unnecessary suffering and even deaths of babies, largely among the poor.

Advocacy groups and charities have accused Nestlé of unethical methods of promoting infant formula over breast milk to poor mothers in developing countries. For example, IBFAN claim that Nestlé distributes free formula samples to hospitals and maternity wards; after leaving the hospital, the formula is no longer free, but because the supplementation has interfered with lactation, the family must continue to buy the formula. IBFAN also allege that Nestlé uses “humanitarian aid” to create markets, does not label its products in a language appropriate to the countries where they are sold, and offers gifts and sponsorship to influence health workers to promote its products.Nestlé denies these allegations.

2- Kraft Foods

A subsidiary of Philip Morris (the maker of Marlboro cigarettes). Kraft Foods is the largest confectionery, food, and beverage corporation headquartered in the United States. It markets many brands in more than 155 countries; eleven of its worldwide brands each earn more than $1 billion annually. Like Nestle, Kraft has consolidated its status in the food oligarchy by buying gigantic brands such as Nabisco (Oreos, Chips Ahoy, Fig Newtons, Ritz, etc.) and Cadbury (Ferrero Rocher, Dairy Milk, Caramilk, etc.).

Kraft’s CEO Irene Blecker Rosenfeld was rated the “2nd most powerful woman in the world” by Forbes. Not surprising since most of the world consumes Kraft foods. Before joining Kraft, Rosenfeld was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Frito-Lay, a division of PepsiCo (another of the “Big Three”). Kraft’s brands include:

PepsiCo Incorporated is a global Fortune 500 corporation headquartered in Purchase, Harrison, New York, with interests in the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of beverages, grain-based snack foods and other products. If you hadn’t guessed it, its main product is Pepsi Cola, but soda pop is not the company’s only product. In fact, a teenager with the munchies could easily leave a convenience store with  three or four PepsiCo products without realizing it (or caring).

PepsiCo is a “Premium” member of the Council of Foreign Relation and of the Brookings institute, two of the most important organizations for the world’s elite (as seen in the article Naming Names: Your Real Government). The chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, is part of the World Economic Forum. Within these organizations, executives from PepsiCo and other mega-corporations like Sony (the largest label in the music industry), Nike (the largest shoe seller in the world), Rockefeller Group International, and Lockheed Martin (the largest defense company in the world), work alongside various heads of state (including past US presidents), policy-makers (such as current US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton) and image makers (like Tom Brokaw and George Clooney), to develop political, social and economic opinions and recommendations affecting entire countries. The policies favored by these organizations are collectively steering the world towards a unified world government and a single world currency, in what is often referred as a “New World Order”.

PepsiCo brands include:


Mountain Dew
Ocean Spray
Lipton Ice Tea
No Fear Energy Drink
Propel Enhanced Water
Starbucks (retail products)


Sun Chips
Frito Lay Dips
Chester’s Puffcorn
Cracker Jack
El Isleno Plantain Chips
Frti-Lay Peanuts
Maui Style Potato Chips
Miss Vickie’s
Nut Harvest
Rold Gold

Yep, even the good ol’ trustworthy Quaker guy is part of PepsiCo.

The Spin-Off Company

PepsiCo also feeds millions daily through its spin-off company, Yum!, which owns restaurant chains including Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC,Hot ‘n Now,East Side Mario’s,D’Angelo Sandwich Shops,Chevys Fresh Mex, California Pizza Kitchen and Stolichnaya.

Many of the products listed above have existed for decades, some for over a century. What is the secret of such enduring success? First, the recipe has to be just right. As mentioned above, Nestlé spent more than $2 billion dollars in 2009 alone for research and development, which is mostly used to pay people in lab coats to create the most appealing, taste-bud satisfying, addicting and, of course, cost-effective products possible. The addictive properties of salt, fat, sugar and other chemicals are well known to the $2 billion-per-year researchers. Processed foods contain a carefully calculated mix of chemicals and additives that send “satisfying” signals to the brain, which the brain then continues to seek out in the form of cravings.

However, there are countless companies selling similar products. So in order to keep consumers coming back to their specific brand, corporations invest billions of dollars in the second secret of success: “brand loyalty” achieved through marketing and advertising.

In Conclusion

Why should one care about which company sells which product? Primarily, it is a question of health. Almost all of the hundreds of products cited in this article contain toxic ingredients, from excessive amounts of  saturated fat to additives like MSG, High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), mercury and/or aspartame. These substances, and many more like them, are poisonous to the body, the nervous system and the brain (as discussed in the article Dumbing Down Society: Food, Beverages and Meds). Processed foods are making the entire world fatter, sicker and dumber, even though only a few companies produce them. It is vital to know and recognize them … so you can avoid them. It is also important to recognize the basic marketing tactics that are being used to push consumers to buy processed foods.

The issue is much larger than individual health, however. To be aware of the companies selling your food is to be aware of important actors of the world elite. As the saying goes “control the food and you control the people”. If you believe it is important to know the truth about the world’s power structure, it is fundamental to know about these companies and understand their extensive reach throughout all areas of our global society. They might “only” sell food, but their power and position gives these conglomerates an active role in world governance, including economy, politics, law-making and even the military (who do you think supplies military mess halls?). The Big Three and globally dominant corporations like them are part of policy-setting “think tank” organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group, which serve as the true motors behind global change. Should PepsiCo have a say in the invasion of a country such as Iran? Well, it does. And every time you buy a Pepsi or a bag of Doritos or jug of Tropicana, you are helping them become richer and more powerful. Luckily, however, there is an easy way to stop supporting these companies: Simply replace the processed products you buy from these companies with fresh foods bought from local businesses. You’ll improve your health and your local economy, but most importantly, you’ll also become the elite’s worst nightmare: a rational consumer.

Love the article, but thought I would add one small correction. Saturated fat is not toxic in any way, shape, or form. That is actually misinformation masterminded and perpetuated by our good friends, the Illuminati. Saturated fat is good for you. Back in my more naive days, I took a college class on nutrition, and there I was fed standard advice about nutrition (saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease, salt is bad, vegetable oils are good, fiber is good, and processed foods are only bad because they're "empty calories"). I followed that advice, becoming vegetarian and eating a low-fat diet of mostly whole grains, beans, and vegetables. I quickly developed numerous disturbing health problems (irritable bowel, weight gain, nausea and vomiting, skin problems, brain fog, hair turning grey at the age of 22). In the course of my research, I came across the work of Dr. Weston A. Price,… Read more »
After looking at this article, one would get the impression you only think consumerism is only about food and drugs to dumb you down…. Food and drugs are only part of the equation. Consumer goods make up another part that is: cars electronics telecommunications, fashion (clothes etc.) and then comes the big one Media; an even bigger contributor to globalisation and a NWO pushing everything from the consumer goods mentioned above to political, social, religious and philosophical concepts. When I say media I mean ALL MEDIA including the alternative media. Don't be fooled as alternative media is by and large run by the same people who run the mainstream. Until you all understand this the march of the NWO will not end and you will continue to be an unwitting contributor. Please if you can be bothered watch my Youtube videos at the danteprudente channel ( that explain it all.… Read more »

To VC, could you add in your article the link or the name of the video on Youtube, because I could not view the advert, and I don't have much to go on to find them on my own with Youtube, without a title or something like that. I could find the Miracle whip ad you were talking about.

I am very curious about Lidl, it seems like they are into copying big brands and what worries me more is that noone seems to know who owns this foodchain.
Please look into it?

With so many people spending their evenings glued to a TV screen bombarded with adverts its no wonder our population has become mind-washed- WAKE UP WORLD we must educate our children – turn off the TV

What do you suggest to eat? What do you eat? I've heard the elite eats allot of trail mix

HA. My History teacher gave us a project related to this. We were supposed to cut out the little fine print on the package of some products that said the name of the company that really owns the product. She said that the goal of the project was to make us more aware of who REALLY owns the products we buy and use everyday. It was an interesting project. When I saw this article I thought maybe my history teacher read this 😀

My parents work for the advertising dept. of one of the above corporations (I'd rather not be responsible for getting them fired, indirectly, evil corp. or not), yet happen to personally be big believers in natural food. They are also incredibly fat-phobic.

They're completely oblivious to the role they play in perpetuating harm on the ignorant and/or especially lower classes. I actually had to hear my stepmother claim that "fat people are only fat because they're lazy" and "bananas are cheap. I don't see why they can't just eat bananas instead of burgers" WHEN HER ENTIRE LIVELIHOOD depends on tricking them into sh*t instead of real food.

If we all take a big step back. Look at the big picture. Stop buying s**t food for our precious bodies and start buying at local farmers markets, we just might be onto something.

It's funny how the article in the link for "Naming Names: Your Real Government" has been moved or deleted.

Just had to point out that Ferrero Rocher is not owned by Kraft. Ferrero is a family owned business, the Ferrero family own it. Makes me wonder how much of your other info is bullshit.

time to go to the farmers market!!I think its really sick that they need to have control over people!!!I'm surprised that they havent taken this or any similar web page down.Leave the food alone!

Sometimes I wish I could just get away from Society and go back to my roots and let the hand of nature define my fate rather than the hands of a few pompous rich individuals.

M.I.A. Paper Planes Analysis (Oil Conspiracy & More (Including the poisons that are used in our foods and drinks Exposed) Good video!!

kmt every worship the devil now a days

Really informative article, but…… Unfortunately, this same type of info can be said about almost every elite & not so elite company in our the USA today. YouTube? FaceBook? Google? Apple? Microsoft? GE? What makes Bill & Melinda Gates think they're so special & enlightened that they should be allowed to make reproduction decisions for anyone other than themselves? Pretty darn arrogant don't you think? Who gave the FaceBook kid, Mark Z., the right to give the US Government access to every one's info on FaceBook? What made the Terminator think he could be the Govenator? Could it be money? Yes, but it's more than that. It's that WE GAVE them the power. It sure isn't because we, the people, believe in our hearts that all these "special" people have earned any right to their self appointed, lofty positions. We need answers. What do they have that we don't have?… Read more »

Great article, just recently discovered this site, and i must say i'm amazed. Luckily i have some knowledge on subject, and i dare to say i'm intelligent enough to see that all those companies are selling us just ONE BIG FAT LIE.

I have read tons of articles about nutrition, and i want to mention Anita Supe, Croatian scientist living and working in Göteborg , Sweeden.

This one is in Croatian, couldn't find English, but i think there are also much references to researches in Engl.

keep the good work VC 😉

My textbooks at my school for Health Class talk about how food companies and alcohol companies use their advertisements to try and target your emotions to get you to buy the product. When I saw it I was like ;O

Hey awesome article, your best yet. There have historically been some brilliant health teachers, Ron Gellatley, Susan Powter, Paul Bragg etc, but by far the best is ARNOLD EHRET. He said whatever is natural is good, whatever is so-called improved by man is evil. SO he would say all processed food is evil. Notice how when the big multinationals buy it, it loses its taste and becomes bland and boring, not to mention cheap? DO yourself a favour and google 'Arnold Ehret' and may your life be blessed as a result. Please do this!

aquaponics. grow your own food.

I am a new mom and let me tell you… I received so much free formula when I gave birth it made my head spin. I feel so bad for women who buy into that crap. We have God given food bags. Free storage, kept warm, endless supply (on demand) and the healthiest thing you can give your child. It made me furious at the companies. — If you read your whole article here you can really see how under attack women are.

Man…. I see why so many people go vegan.

Nestlé is also involved in pharmaceuticals, they have a Pharmaceutical Products division 😐

Don't know who they are involved with though…

I totally agree with you. GBY!

we are really enlighten on your research, broaden our horizon.

it's quite pathetic how it seems the world has no other option but to adhere this GM foods,

because these organizations has destroy the fertile land with their so-called fertilizer's,very disturbing even to the degree of destroying the fertility of our lands here in Africa,

supplying us with artificial seed.If you not their umbrella,thus,no food.

without the intervention of God the world is really at a collapse seriously,but it's seems there is a bit of hope here in Africa,precisely Ghana,natural(organic) is available.

God please help your children.

ok. i know all of this is evil BUT there is one thing you people are most definately confused about. i am 16 years old, and it seems BLATANT to me: GMO, or genetically modified organisms ARE. NOT. BAD. FOR. YOU. ok???? If you people had any idea what DNA even is you would know this. It is NOTHING but a combination of a small group of molecules. it doesn't matter HOW you rearrange these molecules, they are still the same when your body breaks them down and absorbs them. Organisms which have been modified, contain all the same natural substances that are in normal, naturally occurring organisms, but they have been mixed with DNA from genetically superior organisms to produce something that is either 1. cheaper to produce 2. more nutritious 3. disease resistant 4. tastes better 5. generally, anything more aesthetically pleasing Do you see? it is not… Read more »

you are just 16 years old; There's a lot of knowledge and experience you need to add to your cv before being in the position to make such bold statements

1. They are much cheaper to produce

2. They have less absorbable nutrition

3. They are very disease resistant

4. They taste delicious

5. They are very pretty

GMO foods are directly evil and very bad for everybody.

Excellent article. I noticed that there is a monopoly since ever too as I tend to read the labels. How am I gonna deal with it. I'll try to minimise buying food from the big guys. But then again detergents and washing powder are made only by them. There is so much you can avoid. Each of these companies provides food, beverages, personal care products, detergents. They seem to have bought gradually every other small company. Total control and monopoly, everything under their umbrella.

please allow me to add this to the story,

i think it adds up with this article and tells of another integral part of this monstrous consumer state.

when i watched it i thought how we are not even aware in everyday life of how evil it can be and we are drawn into that in every way from the food available to the seats you sit on in the cafe where you buy this food. i thought we humans are doing terrible things. i hope you watch, i hope the whole world watches this. i hope you watch without looking away, make yourself look at the pain in this film, it will hopefully allow you to admit it's there it's happening and to take real responsibility to stop it.

Here's an interesting article on monopolies. Yes, I know is a humor website, but their articles are actually pretty informative, and sometimes, its more of a gallows humor.

Now THIS is a good article. These are some of the real problems that are going on in our world today.

This was chocking to me, not that i dont know it, but i havent "thought" about it. i did a quick look in my kitchen while making breakfast for my two daughters, and i just turned over my butter package ( i live in sweden and buy "swedish" butter) And it says UNILEVER under it? i was like WTF!!?!?!?!? The only other places i have noticed UNILEVER with the flower U is on my deo roll on and other chemical products, no why the f**k would they buy my swedish breakfast butter????

to EFF upp my children, thats why.

today is a new day of buying food in my house, i will be painfully aware of all the crap out there and make a difference in my and my children and my unborn babys health!

good article.

This is really discouraging. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do now that I've been informed about this. -___-

You dont know what to do. That is really easy. Check my post above. Post NO 107

my first year in University, we talked about this, it is amazing and very strange how few companies become the kings of the world, it is just unbelievable

Wow great article…

ban gmo its food from hell

This war isn't over. As long as we educate ourselves and start treating each other as the LIVING CREATURES that we are, we can end this.

THANK GOD this topic is hitting more than one area on the web. As slow of a process as corporate control seems to be, it is actually happening. It blows my DAMN mind to see that even the child movie "Wall-E," has depicted the future of the world to be run by a corporation.

Anyone who has read this article may be interested in other areas of LIFE itself and how to improve the society we cannot escape.

If so, look up a few things:

The 100 mile diet

Slow Food

The Great Sunflower Project

Fluoride, who sells it local governments, and what it does to people

Food, INC. (I understand how skewed documentaries may or may not be, but just be RATIONAL)

IF you would like some more, reply and I'd be happy to send you everything I am aware of under the sun to help.

maybe you have answerd this allready, but what you mean with the hooks at the foods – Häagen-Dazs (North America and the United Kingdom)

because we have this in The Netherlands… they do not own it here than or what do you mean??

Thanks for the article by the way!

Stop worrying about this fear mongering load of crap, and start preaching the gospel. From the Senomyx website: We have discovered or in-licensed many of the key receptors that mediate taste in humans. Having isolated human taste receptors, we have created proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems…has enabled us to improve our ability to find novel flavor enhancers…As a result, we have synthesized and discovered hundreds of unique potential flavor enhancers and taste modulators." Translation: Senomyx is re-inventing food and flavor by genetically engineering taste bud receptor cell triggers. Foods of the future will contain "flavor enhancers" which fool human taste buds into perceiving the sensations of sweetness, sourness, saltiness, and bitterness. Remember the artificial sweetener controversies? Chemical sugar-replicating compounds are listed on food labels. The new chemicals made by biotech companies will require no such labels. Although they are not actual flavors, they will be called "artificial flavors." And from… How did Senomyx accomplish the task? A (multi-hour) review of their patents… Read more »

you did a great job Lynette, it must have been painstakingly hard ..

Related to how they begun (cloning human embryonic kidney cells) I also noticed they are very much into making us unknowing cannibals. I read there is human biological material in the chemtrails too and I find this quite disturbing as to why they would want us eat and breath human cells.

much more about chemtrails here:

Not all chocolate contain HFCS. Most of them. However, I can't find ice cream without that garbage.

Why they add embryonic kidney cells from aborted human foetuses. What sort of products include the human cells. Raphael is right. They're making us cannibals.

I have to go to a health food store for organic ice creams, but it tastes SO much better- worth the price!

This one too Raphael – I feel your pain!

thanks Sarah. Nothing 'kills' me as painfully as having to helplessly witness the malicious veiling of the sun. The sun which was made by God to freely share its light and warmth to all of us, good or bad…

The water? They took it long ago, before I was even born. The air? It's poisoned too but at least we don't see it…

But the sun? My sun? Believe me, I mourn it every single day…

It makes me really sad too! There is rarely a sunny day here that does not end in overcast via deathtrails. Do you ever watch Dutchsinse? I think you would like his youtubes. He covers HAARP stuff but I have seen him predict many a storm and earthquake by tracking this stuff. I think you would find it intersting at least. Here is the video he put out right before the St Louis tornado, he pinpointed the exact location to be hit. I think he is a good one to watch, I check him multiple times weekly. Chemtrails are related to the weather modification and I have a friend ex-military that getting ready to put something together on that. I'll definately let you know if he does…..think he is nervous about it and I don't blame him.

Never heard of Dutchsinse before but I'll definitely give it a try. On the chemtrails issue I followed mostly Freeman Perspective but not so much any more. It has become too depressive to see so many people in denial although all they have to do is watch the sky…

Thanks Sarah.

Yahoo has an article today- and it says I have an Eating Disorder.

* Orthorexics: Those affected may start by eliminating processed foods, anything with artificial colorings or flavorings as well as foods that have come into contact with pesticides. Beyond that, orthorexics may also shun caffeine, alcohol, sugar, salt, wheat and dairy foods. Some limit themselves to raw foods.

Hi Everyone, I wonder what all you people reading and commenting on this will do as an action. Will you stop at this place and thats it. I say stop buying this stuff. If you are adicted then start decreasing the ammouts you consume. I for example have not drank a Soda (Pepsi, Coke, 7Up…etc) for weeks by now. This trend has been with me for almost 2 years. As for Pepsi I have'nt drank one for maybe months. other bevreges maybe once every 2 weeks and mostly to not make some one offering it to me sad. I also cutoff most of the other things the same way (step by step). that includes (Chocolate, FastFood Rest., Kraft Products…etc). These I dropped the amount of consumption significantly and changed the brands to something else. mostly local stuff that have no known names for anybody but people who live here.

Those commercials are so obnoxious Fan!!!! Notice how they always portray the one who is questioning HFCS as dumb/uninformed with no information to back it up. Here is another:

Marketing HFCS with Dumb and Dumbers!!! Blatant. Though probably effective, unfortunately. – this makes me feel better. If I had the $$ I would pay to air this one…..during SuperBowl. Philanthropy marketing.

In other countries they market HFCS as glucose-fructose or maize starch or inverted sugar syrup and who knows how many other names. Probably deliberate attempt to confuse the customer. Biscuits, cookies, cakes, yoghurts with fruit, soft drinks, sodas, chocolate bars, latte powder, cappuccino powder, hot drinking chocolate powder, lollipops, sweets, candies, ice cream and many other processed products are loaded with this stuff. If you change your diet, you will hardly have any of this rubbish. Of course they add HFCS as it's cheap and very sweet. It's all about profit. Thanks VC for making the article on HFCS because I was absolutely clueless how bad it is and how it affects our health. I was having daily a lot of this garbage mainly with the Nescafe cappuccinos and their bliddy inverted sugar syrup AKA HFCS.

Greatness here, VigilantCitizen! Please allow me three important points: 1. Your conclusion is great. Simple and true advice: "Luckily, however, there is an easy way to stop supporting these companies: Simply replace the processed products you buy from these companies with fresh foods bought from local businesses. You’ll improve your health and your local economy, but most importantly, you’ll also become the elite’s worst nightmare: a rational consumer." Most Americans have become divorced from the farm and local food production. My father used to say about McDonald's and many others: "That's not food." He was intelligent, but I thought he was nuts about that. Now, I know he was right. But he didn't have the ability to explain. So, I've had to figure it out on my own. Now, I live in VietNam — hopefully temporarily! I've been teaching here for 5 years, in different places each for a year… Read more »

Wow James – that is one informative site! From what I can see so far, you have my respect sir! Thank you for your contribution and commitment!!! I will be spending some time there for sure! Could not agree with you more on 'let's be the generation who fixes this'……feels like we are on a freeway headed straight towards a brick wall with only a few (if that), exits left. Thanks again for your efforts in creating awareness!!

You'd be surprised, not even the organic food is as natural and wholesome as we may think. With Monsanto taking over agriculture all of our fruits and vegetables are already GE seeds that require GE fertilizer. Companies like Mosaic create some of the fertilizer that's needed to help these seeds grow. Countries and farmers who are no where near these massive fields where strange and over the top crops grow are starting to be affected by winds carrying some of the seeds, et cetera. Nowadays if you dont have a farm and make everything from scratch you have no idea where these are coming from and what's inside. I highly recommend watching the documentary "The World According to Monsanto". The movie is even broken into clips on YouTube by the user Evolver0410.

I highly recommend watching Adam Curtis' documentary 'Century of the Self', which shows how Freud's ideas of the unconscious were applied to consumerism by his nephew Edward Bernays. Since then, marketing became much more involved in targeting the general public to 'identity' with the products they were selling as an extension of an individual's identity.

Let's not forget the importance of fasting. That is developing and strengthening a relationship with the Lord. It is not the same as dieting- cutting back on what you consume. We all need help in this. Organic food is not plentiful and expensive to afford, especially with the cost of gas/gallon. God, save us!

Even FEWER…not less. I can't stand the way people speak "English" anymore!

"If we add it up, how many hours have we spent mesmerized by swirling chocolate on TV?"

I hear this in my head every time Dove tempts me with their stupid propaganda.
