The Dark Side of The Food Industry: How The Standard Diet...

Food has become a more complex part of our lives than ever before. Much of what we think is food is actually many ingredients disguised as food, with entirely different, often negative impacts on the human body. Sadly, this is a greater problem here in the US than in other parts of the world, thanks to the food industry, corrupt intentions, and broken policies. Today, I talk about all this and more with my guest Jason Karp, whose personal experience of nearly going blind due to a toxic lifestyle led him to discover a different way; he made it his mission to get “back to human.” In this episode, we discuss: Jason’s personal health journey and why that has prompted him to take on the campaign against Kellogg’s (7:53) The unhealthy state of America’s food industry (22:42) How Kellogg’s has one cereal formulation for Canada and another for the US that is full of chemicals (26:07) The correlation between food dyes and ADHD, and the failure of Kellogg's pledge (29:04) The political aspect of food regulation and dangers of unregulated food additives (32:55) Why we are in a state of metacrisis and what that means for our future (37:18) The bidirectional relationship between food and mental health (46:04) The financial burden of healthcare on the US government due to unhealthy diets (53:52) Supporting the Kellogg's Initiative: Sign the Petition (1:06:03) We have a lot to do to shift our food system and eliminate harmful ingredients in the US, but there are ways to enact positive change starting today. We can all support a cleaner food industry and better health by voting with our dollar, purchasing real food, and getting involved in policy policy changes.
