"For each of us there is some mission in life if we but find it. All have some definite thing to do, something for which they have been created; and only the doing of this thing will justify their existence here on earth. If we come into the world and occupy space and time without giving back for this privilege, we have not justified ourselves, and our lives in the end are barren." ~ Hay

The Advertising of Unhealthy Food is OUT OF CONTROL!

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.”
Painted Staircase in Penn Station, NYC

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?

Well, you're right..

And..... Think about it. Either we pay expenses with higher rates or the government pays the expenses through taxes (and socialism)

If not, then weyst rely on advertising.

If you want healthier advertising, then it has to be profitable for healthier companies to advertise.

Since it IS happening that many more healthier companies are promoting healthier foods then 30 years ago, then be patient as people choose healthier snacks, which they ARE doing. Those chips taste limp and innococous next to the healthier ones, which can now be found everywhere, so advertising for yucky chips WILL get more people to buy healthy chips.

The only way for real change to happen is through acceptance and not judgemental resistance.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
