Carbs, Industry’s Influence in the Expansion of Carb Production

Industry’s Influence in the Expansion of Carb Production

It would be nice if money weren’t the primary motivating factor in business. It would be nice if the health and welfare of every individual human being were the primary motivating factor in business. But it’s not. That is why this post may be the hardest one to construct. It not only involves corporate America, it involves a major portion of all industry both big and small. Even down to the mom and pop stores in smalltown America

The problem is, that this problem invades the very core of our society, our sustenance. This is what we all work for. Our primary goal, for our families, (after finding shelter) is to put food on the table. And this is where the problem begins. Everyone has to eat. This makes everyone, who’s hungry, susceptible to outside influences, to quench those hunger pangs.

Our primary goal, for our families, (after finding shelter) is to put food on the table. And this is where the problem begins. Everyone has to eat. This makes everyone, who’s hungry, susceptible to outside influences, to quench those hunger pangs.

The food industry understands this. They’ve done numerous studies on it. Their research has told them how, when, where, and to whom to market their products to. All so they can increase their profits.

Their only interest, though, is to please their stockholders, they not interested in their customer’s health (unless they’re in the health industry), so everything they do, is done for the bottom line, profit. Because of this shortsightedness, and not looking that far into the future, they’re cutting their own throats, by harming their market with products, that are not only making their customers sick, their products are killing the customers.

These products kill because of the sugar they contain, we all know that. But the problem here is, that they don’t kill immediately. Their death sentence takes a lot longer. It’s a lot more painful. It’s a lot more expensive. It’s a lot more emotionally draining. It’s definitely, nothing anyone should have to experience, yet the addiction keeps anyone who’s on this diet, remain on this diet, voluntarily. Only those strong enough can break the cycle of addiction. But the beauty of breaking it is this, it doesn’t take that long, as long as you can abstain from its lure. It only takes a month or two, for the average addict. Heavier, more addicted people, might take another month or two. But I can promise you, that everyone will experience the magic of partial freedom, even by abstaining for just two weeks. The sincerity of the attempt must be a solemn one. You must be earnest in trying and that means reading every label of every food you buy. Know what you’re eating. It’s important to know exactly what you’re putting in your body, so you can know what you’re doing to your body.

Bringing the food industry to an understanding, that they are sacrificing tomorrows customers for today’s profits, may help in curbing corporate influence, but is it enough to change the behavior of all corporate America? I don’t know. The amount of change that would have to occur, is enormous because the industry is enormous. How do you change an industry this enormous?  The only way I know how to is one company at a time until all companies see the light.

Unfortunately, profit doesn’t have a soul. It has no moral values. And it’s the moral values that make us a society. Without them, we’d have no laws or regulations to keep people from stepping on other people’s toes. This begs the question, what role does profit play in a civilized culture. Most of us know that profit = money. Most of us also know that a civilization needs money to conduct commerce, so everyone within that civilization can trade their goods and services. It’s this trade, that’s at the core of civilization. People came together in primitive times for protection, and this, in turn, started us trading our possessions and food. And thus, the beginning of commerce, the engine that keeps our society, culture, and civilization growing.

If  it’s the desire for money, that’s at the root of all evil, does that make all of corporate America evil, because of their desire to improve their profits? Some would say so, simply because of the lack of responsibility corporate America takes for their actions when they harm others. Others would say, it’s survival. In all actuality, it’s both. The desire for profit and power is what drives most all of corporate America. It’s my opinion, that this is where corporate America is failing society.

Because they have to fulfill stockholders wishes to make more money, they are obligated to do so. Doing anything else would not be considered profitable and it wouldn’t keep the stockholders happy. The company would lose the investment of their stockholders and this, in turn, would strongly disable their ability to conduct business and therein threaten the existence of the company. Profit is important. It’s one of the biggest, if not the biggest motivating factors in our society.

We, in the United States, have always used our freedoms, to bolster our efforts to increase our profits. It’s this freedom, that’s built the strongest empire in history. The problem is this when you consider freedom and what it brings us, you have to look at the other side of the coin, that freedom is on. The other side of this freedom coin that’s tossed around, so much (mostly politically), is responsibility. You can’t have true freedom without responsibility. The responsibility side of this coin, says that you must take responsibility for the freedoms you enjoy, especially when those freedoms inflict harm on another human being. You can’t have true freedom without this responsibility. Without the responsibility, what do you have? A society without control. When anybody, person, group, or company isn’t fully responsible for enjoying their freedoms, where does the freedom exist for all parties? In that sense then, where does it exist for anyone? It doesn’t when one does harm to any other person. only one person’s freedom was expressed. The person on whom this expression of freedom was committed, wasn’t allowed to express their own freedom because they are subject to the freedoms of the other. Is this really true freedom? I submit, that it isn’t,  it’s not true freedom at all.  At best, it’s pseudo-freedom.

It’s how our system, works, and because our Supreme Court thinks that corporations are the same as people, they’ve said that they deserve the same rights and freedoms as any single individual human being. Yet, they’re allowed a lot more freedom, simply because, they have the money to do so. Here’s the worst part of this, because of our addiction, it’s our money they use. We give it to them, freely, every time we buy their products. At least we think we do. We’re actually succumbing to their desire. We are slaves to their wishes,

This is a trap, that I refuse to fall into. I can only thank Dr Perlmutter, Dr Davis, and Dr Amen, for setting me on the path that brought me to this point, and these blogs, (I don’t mention Dr. Amen anywhere in any of my blogs, except right here. The reason I mention him here, is because he’s the one who basically started me on this journey.) This trap will continue until it meets resistance. I see a tax on high glycemic food as a starting point. That would at least make the buyer stop and think before they purchased these foods. And yes that does include your tortilla chips.

Industry Concerns Of Dispelling Wheat And Grains

Industry Concerns Of Dispelling Wheat And Grains

What moves America forward, more than anything else is corporate advancement. Hence the control of corporations in the America is what drives this advancement.group-of-3d-business-people-working-together-in-office-100330652

If any major change is to occur within the realms of modern society, it must be done, on a corporate level. This brings us to the dilemma of how to change the behavior of millions of people, all who are addicted to these substances and worse yet addicted to what corporate America tells them to do. They tell them how to think, how to eat, what to drink, primarily what they should be eating and drinking. This puts them in control of the amount of sugar we consume, which in turn, controls our emotions, to put us ‘under their spell’, so to speak. They’re never going to want to give that up. That’s something that we have to take back. and that’s why the site URL is saveourdignity.org. exists. In order to effect, changes in the food industry, primarily the grain industry, we need to make corporate America know, that we’re tired of this abuse and want to regain our dignity. The dignity of no more Alzheimer’s disease, no more heart disease, no more cancer.

15404184-portrait-of-a-serious-business-men-and-women-attending-a-seminarIt must be incorporated into this network of our society, that change must happen. The problem therein lies, this industry is huge. It’s comprised of, probably more companies, than any other industry, in the world, as food is the most important commodity that’s marketed worldwide. The number of companies within this industry is almost unimaginable. So how do we change the behavior of this much of our society? It can’t be done overnight. It’s going to take the efforts of everyone in society, to make a change, this grandiose, which means it’s going to take a while.

Corporate industry, the food industry primarily, must confront the dangers, that they are imposing on the entire world, by continuing to grow, manufacture, market, advertise and sell this devastating food that causes so many illnesses and diseases. They must understand that killing their customers, is not a solid business plan.

I realize that many of the crop seed companies, (Monsanto, Dupont, Syngenta, Land O’ Lakes, Bayer and many other overseas), had a lot of the money tied up in pharmaceuticals, as well as manufacturing the crop seed, (much of it genetically modified). Even though many of those companies liquidated their investments in the pharmaceutical side of the industry, many of these companies still have ties to each other, which begs the question, were coverups initiated to help hide these facts? It conjures, in my mind, the question of how threatened did they feel if any of this information was released to the public? Are these valid arguments? I think so. And I think, they deserve further investigation. This endeavor is where it gets interesting. With corporate America in so much control of how our society functions, it’s occurred to me that nothing is going to happen, until corporate America, the food industry and pharmaceutical industry, in general, must change their behavior, They must discontinue the marketing and advertising of these products, so as to not persuade the public that they need to continue to eat  this garbage. The question arises, how do you make a company cut its own throat. Because if anything were to interrupt the flow of their finances, how long can they stay in business? This brings us to the core of what we need to work toward to change, and changing it, may result in much of this industry disappearing.

The soft drink industry, for example, they’re probably the most guilty of any, for slipping this dangerous food into our diet, by loading up their drinks with high-fructose corn syrup, sugar,  Aspartame,  Cyclamate,  Saccharin,  Sucralose,  Acesulfame potassium,  malt syrup, Lead acetate,  any many others that I have trouble  pronouncing, like maltodextrinmaltitolmaltotrioseIcodextrin,  and too many forms of oligosaccharides to list here. To find them all, you need to refer to every food label on every can of soft drink, that’s on the market. Convincing the beverage industry of finding other sources of sweeteners is already beginning to take place. A lot of manufacturers are starting to offer drinks sweetened with stevia, a completely natural, non-caloric sweetener, that’s super concentrated when it’s offered in powdered form. My wish is for the transformation of all sweetened drinks to stevia instead of the high sugar sweeteners, like all of those listed above. Can you imagine what this would do, to get this dangerous substance out of our diet? I can. You can visit my dream page here.

So how do we replace the lost business and everything else that goes along with it, the jobs and careers, the investment of millions of Americans,  who’ve all invested in these companies(through their IRA’s, Keoghs, investment funds, etc)? How do we take away all of that? The problem is, you can’t, and that’s where the problem of dispelling this problem lies. You have to replace what you take away, with healthier options. Healthier for the body, healthier for business and corporate America. My contention is, that business or corporate America, and the health of the individual run hand in hand. They depend on each other. They’re crucial to each other’s survival.

Why then, doesn’t the food industry understand this basic fundamental law of business, that killing your customers with inferior products, is killing your industry? Are they that indebted to the pharmaceutical industry, that they have to keep sending them customers? Man O man does this open up a can of worms, making the construction of this post, an endeavor that I can wish upon anyone! But, I’m going to try to untangle this quagmire, so stay tuned. The eradication of this dangerous carbohydrate out of our diet is going to take a global effort, because of its presence, everywhere. But with the help of industry, it might be possible to just do so.
