How many of you have seen the documentary movie, 'Food Inc.'?
If you are concerned about eating wholesome food you really should watch this movie. I have seen the shift away from family farms toward huge corporate type farms and it is a very worrisome trend. We are being forced to live on foods that have been genetically modified, fed artificial hormones, sprayed with toxic chemicals, picked by underpaid labourers before it's ripe so it can be shipped thousands of miles to be put on your grocery stores shelf under a big sign that says 'FRESH'.
This movie exposes what is happening right now to our food industry. It explains why there are so many food scares and recalls happening. These problems are only going to increase. As long as consumers continue to shop at the big stores, these panics will get worse and worse.
God has warned us that this was coming so it is not unexpected. The enemy, in the form of huge multi-national corporations is going around roaring like a lion seeking whom he may devour. Don't let it be you!
