The current health crisis, however, is a little more
by Mark Bittman

The current health crisis, however, is a little more
the work of the evil empire.

dairy and poultry we ate,
the healthier we'd be.

the thing we're only realizing just now.
- Mark Bittman

 

The USDA is not our ally here.
We have to take matters into our own hands,

And that happens to be quite easy.
Less meat, less junk, more plants.
- Mark Bittman

Can farm-raised salmon be organic when its feed has
nothing to do with its natural diet,

swimming in their own filth?
- Mark Bittman

The sad thing is, when it comes to diet,
is that even when well-intentioned Feds try to do right by us,
they fail.

or they are puppets of agribusiness.

I confessed recently to an old friend,
"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.
I realize that in my life I've made so many
physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
