I love to try new things, especially food related things, but if someone were to blindfold me, place a dish in front of me, and simply say, "Eat."...I really don't think I could do it. I'm willing to bet that I'm not alone in this, and many of us would decline the said opportunity, unless perhaps there were some large sum of money involved.
About five minutes ago I finished the documentary "Food, Inc." About one minute after that I came to the full realization that I've been wearing a blindfold of sorts for around 20 years now. I've never even thought anything of this until now, in this moment, and that is completely terrifying.
In my 20 years of life, what on earth have I consumed? What have I been torturing my body with? How many greedy, selfish companies have I contributed to? This is daunting to think about. It's gross, really. What's even more gross is that our government doesn't care about any of us or our health. Of course not.
