From Organic to Cronic
I bought a cook book several years back. A top nutritionist co wrote it. I learnt that the 'peasant' diet in the Middle Ages was nearly all organic!
I also remember a documentary series one of the team from Monty Python made, where he said he would reveal 'real history'. He said that it wasn't true the myth that Medieval peasants washed rarely, that they regularly bathed, had healthy hair and teeth. Rather, he claimed, it was the very rich aristocrats and even royalty who had the bad rotten teeth, owing to the fact of their preference for fine foods.
Now the situation is reversed. It is usually the middle classes and rich who can afford organic, and bio dynamic food, whilst the poor have to do with fast food McFood which causes bad teeth, obesity, bad skin and hair and a whole lot of diseases waiting to happen!
And the rich-owned mass media helps this situation along. Even for the littlest of tots, making sure they ingest the highest amounts of salt, sugar, fat, and chemicals.
Many youths are told it is cool to eat fast food. And many of their 'cool' celebs do same--and get paid well to do. And then the same ones who promote this, and act so surprised the kids teeth are rotten claim they have a solution: fluoride in the drinking water!! Poison
