FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Americans eat far too much 'dead food' -- all that highly processed, bleached, and chemically-saturated, stuff that comes in brightly colored boxes, cans and packages -- that money-greedy, mega-corporate advertisers have the audacity to call 'food'. 

Creator and nature intends that all animals, including humans to eat fresh 'live' food.  Vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, and meat have become old-fashioned to many Americans. 

Humans do not "catch" cancer.  Cancer does not appear out of nowhere.  We eat, breath and absorb cancer-causing substances -- ugly chemicals found in our environment.   Change your eating habits or die an ugly death.
