junk food and our choices



How can we push food companies to produce better food?

As consumers, we got only one power: the power of choice...

It is up to us to choose what is right or what is wrong for us and our kids...

Can we do it?

Probab;y not,

on the other hand, you may know that I believe that GM food is wrong (for a lot of reasons, the most important being environmental issues)!

Apart from dangerous for the environment, we need to wonder also if GM fish ... is REALLY sustainable? And, WHO can AFFORD it???


I think, that the consumerism mentality we have has head us into this mess: eating bad food leading to obesity, diabetes and heart diseases...Cheap junk food, processed food, food for the microwave, GM salmon now...and that's it...no fruits, no vegetables, no salads...

We should worry about the role that leading food multinational companies play in non-promoting healthy food...

any ideas how to push them to produce food for a more healthy diet and lifestyle?
