I just got home from a workshop in New Jersey. I took the train into Penn Station, NYC and then a Path train to Jersey City. While in Penn Station, I noticed this painted staircase. Actually, there was another staircase to the right that said, “Grab and Go.”

I honestly couldn’t believe it! Why do we continually allow the promotion of harmful substances to the body? Study after study shows that soda is bad for you, yet it is advertised everywhere and people continue to drink it daily... WHY?! How can money be more important than someone’s health and well-being? Yes, it is a choice whether or not to drink soda and eat potato chips, but advertising has conditioned the mind, especially young minds, that it is as American as American pie. No wonder so many people are overweight and children are getting diabetes.
It is not healthy to snack. If you have three healthy, filling meals a day, you do not need to snack. The body needs time for digestion and repair. If you are continually filling your body with food every few hours, the body doesn’t have time to digest the previous meal and it will begin to decay and rot in your intestines. Try eating only three times a day and make each meal a healthy, filling one. You will see a big difference in how you look and feel. There is no need to ever eat potato chips or drink poison, oops, I meant soda.
It’s time we promote healthy foods instead of unhealthy ones. Why not paint a beautiful basket of fruit on the stairs, or paint a piano to encourage exercise like they did in Sweden?
We will get there! Awareness is a start! We will succeed in breaking down the conditioned mind. If everyone switches their choices to healthy ones, potato chip and soda manufactures will be forced out of business. Maybe that would encourage our Government to pass a “Health Care Act” instead of a “Sick Care Act.” What do you think?
