Hmm… thought provoking cartoon. And probably more accurate than he realises.
The reason for this is that “Natural” and “All Natural” actually have no legal meaning, so manufacturers can blaze it all over the labels of ersatz “food” products, and people think “oh it’s natural so its ok to eat”. It actually may have some real food in it somewhere though…
Don’t be fooled by the “Organic” label either. It can only be used legally if the product contains at least 80% certified organic food products processed according to legal organic standards.That means that 20 % of what’s in that package may not be healthy to eat, or may have been processed to death, and/or be packaged poorly.
And the “100% Organic” label may only be used on food products that contain ONLY 100% certified organically grown, processed, and packaged foods. That’s our best bet, but these tend to be the most expensive, as well. Keep in mind that it takes a lot less of unadulterated food to nourish us, so basically you don’t have to eat as much of it (or buy as much) as you would the other products.
So we need to read the labels. Knowing the legal meanings of labels such as Natural, Organic, and 100% Organic, can help us decide which, within our budget, are the optimal choices for a healthier lifestyle.
Jeepers! That was freaking essay. Sorry. lol You can tell I’m not updating Aedre’s Firefly right now by how much I write everywhere else. :`D
Well who can reason with that kind of logic.
I read a contradictory argument on Facebook the other day that said “Birthdays are good for your health. The more you have the longer you live”
And lets face it 100% of 90 year olds never die young
