Stalking health food –
Lost in the Food Jungle?
Is your food really all it can be?
Come with us on safari, hunting health food
through the food jungle–
but watch out for predators!
In today’s commercial-
industrial age, we need
to take an active interest
in the food we eat!
Not long ago, salmonella and E. coli were found on greens sold in supermarkets and even health food groceries. The greens hadn’t been washed adequately, after being handled by people carrying those germs. The consumers who bought the greens could have killed the bacteria by cleaning them safely and easily at home, but apparently they didn’t realize the problem.
That’s one good reason why it’s important to think about where our food comes from, and how it is grown and handled. But there are many other reasons, too.
We hear some food called “natural,” and other food “processed.” Still other food is “organic” or “conventional.” This is confusing! But it doesn’t have to be.
Here’s the easiest way to explain it:
* “organic” and “conventional (or commercial)” describe how food is raised.
* “natural” and “processed” refer to how the food is handled afterward.
But there's a lot more to it than that. Join us for
