A Hilltown Parent Call to Action: “Let’s Turn Our Food System Around!”
Jamie Bishop of Plainfield, MA writes:
For the first time in history, this generation of children has a shorter life expectancy than their parents or grandparents. Why? Because of the processed food and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) that has become the normal average diet of most adults and children.
It’s time we did something about the state of our food chain. I am sure that someone you know is suffering from a processed food, HFCS diet. Please, lets work together to change the way America eats. We can turn this around.
Below are some links to resources that I have compiled.
For more resources:
- Watch Food Inc. by Eric Schlosser online
- Watch Sugar – The Bitter Truth by Dr. Robert H. Lustig
- Read The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, In Defense of Food, and The Omnivore’s Dilemma for Kids: The Secrets Behind What You Eat, all by Michael Pollan. Borrow these titles from your local library or purchase to add to your home library.
Please help to turn this system around and create a healthier nation and sustainable future for ourselves and our children.
