Food Matters. Perhaps the Most Important Eco-Step of All

Those of you who have been following my blog know that I am quite passionate about a few things--especially when it comes to our health, well-being and taking steps to do better, feel better, be healthier, etc.   I recently came across this video and I think that most of the latest books about food and how we eat are really making the point that "Food Matters."  What we eat matters.  It matters to animals, to the air we breathe, to the soil our food is grown in, and ultimately to our own health and the survival of our species.  Throw in a bunch of cliches or sayings like "You are what you eat," or "Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food," and you get the point.  Take 3 minutes and check out this trailer.  I hope it gets you thinking.

There needs to be a great turning in our society-- a turning away from drugs and "magic pills" that artificially "fix" our health woes.  We need to be turning toward the root cause-- how we got to this point of sickness and disease in the first place, and start taking steps to reverse it.   We need to stop just accepting the poisons and toxins that come in brightly colored boxes on our supermarket shelves and start taking action to get better! 

For more information, you can find many resources here.

On that note, I will be exploring this topic further--perhaps in a new blog (still deciding on that).  And to reiterate one of my most favorite sayings:

“Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”-- Margaret Mead
