Eating 3rd Edition
Most people have no idea how toxic the global food supply and our eating habits have become. In the United States, approximately 90% of processed food in conventional grocery stores contains genetically modified (GMO) foods, or "frankenfoods." Our food and water have become highly chemicalized, irradiated, and highly depleted of nutrients. We have been conditioned to eat an unhealthy percentage of acidifying meat, dairy, and processed food, far more than our ancestors. We are the only organisms on the planet, from bacteria to whales, that eats our food cooked. This award-winning Eating DVD comprehensively covers eye-opening facts about our food and eating habits, their impact on our health, environment, animal agriculture, and what we can do to about it.Topics covered include:
