It boggles the mind how much more expensive healthy foods - meat and produce – are than crap. Crap – the MacDonal’s, BK’s, and Subway’s, even the cereal and frozen sections of our grocery stores – is what leads our society to early death. That crap is also directly linked to our massive health care bills. Cancers, obesity, heart disease, hypotension, hypertension, stress, ulcers, depression, and almost every other ailment I can think of, is linked, in some way, to a poor diet.
It costs us, both as a society and as a planet, billions in medication and medical treatment, yet we’re basically forced into it. If healthy, organic food didn’t cost so damn much, we’d be a healthier society. We wouldn’t have to pay for all of the aforementioned diseases in our hospitals.

Also, where do we shop? The organic stores are over-priced, Costco has little in the way of organic produce or free-range anything, it seems to be a lose, lose.
Mankind is meant to consume meat. We are carnivores. I could get into the argument, but it’s already been done here: Man: A Carnivore or Vegetarian? With that said, meat – as far as the meat we buy in our supermarkets – is not what it used to be. The animals we eat today are pumped full of so many chemicals it’s frightening. What they’re fed can be filled with hormones, chemicals like anti-depressants (true story), and poisons; however, buying organic, grass-fed meat can cost an arm and a leg. So now what?
