If you've ever watched the video, "Food, Inc..," you know a little bit about what's behind industrial agriculture's love affair with government subsidized corn. Those of you who've seen this movie might think you know more than a little bit. But "Food, Inc.." is just the introduction to the repulsive world of processed food and the money that motivates this "kingdom." It's a good introduction, nonetheless.
An even more thorough treatise of the world of subsidized corn and soybeans can be found by reading "The Omnivore's Dilemma," by Michael Pollen. I highly recommend this fascinating book!
While you're waiting for your trip to the library to get it, watch this little clip from "Processed People." If you don't believe that you are being used by a money-grubbing "system" that wants your money for the rest of your life and steals your life from you in the process, well, I can't help you.
God created food for us to eat. Precious little of what is in your local supermarket bears any resemblance to real food. Know what you're eating. Seek out locally grown, fresh, real food. Remember, every time you pass a grocery store item across the scanner and it makes that little "beep," that's a vote. That's YOUR VOTE for the kind of food you want sold in your community. Vote wisely.
