Well, well, well. The animals have all wandered out of the barn. Don’t you think it’s too late to put a lock on the door to keep them in?

After years after making people ill with trans fats, the government is now waging a war on trans fats. C’mon people. We all knew trans fats were dangerous to the health of all living beings and shouldn’t have been allowed in our foods. Now there’s a sudden revelation that it’s dangerous? Talk about putting the devious cart before the horse.Cart before the Horse

When I first began my health journey trans fats was one of the first ingredients I recognized as dangerous. If one person with a modicum of intelligence regarding foods and food safety could figure it out, you can’t tell me the powers that be didn’t know this information. I’m sure they did but they were driven by the almighty dollar to convince the public otherwise.

The new war on trans fats is just one of many cart-before-the-horse situations occurring with government and our food. High fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutamate, the food pyramid, genetically modified foods, polyunsaturated oils, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are just a few of the other trans fat type items.

As a society we have to realize that the best way to protect our health and the health of our families is to become educated. Do not wait for the government to deem an item safe of unsafe. The departments of government that were set up to protect the general public have policy makers  that come from the very same large companies manufacturing the products that harm us. These large companies are making a fortune at our expense.

I could go on, but I wont.
