The importance of eating and growing local food

As you can see in this documentary about slave children working on Cocoa plants we can not trust the Corporations feeding us. The corporations involved in most food production will hide dark side of their business because of their very nature = PROFIT !!! A profit orientated mind is always first and foremost concerned with making more money.

This film made me decide to stop buying chocolate and all cocoa products from now on. I just cant trust the companies anynmore. Ikea of Sweden is clear-cutting old Russian forests to make cheap furniture and they used to deny this until the journalists uncovered the ugly truth. Pesticide companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Singenta, DOW and similar are doing much lobbying to keep their bee killing pesticide and GMOs on our fields saying their products are harmless yet bees are collapsing. Oil companies are willing to drill for oil in Arctic eventhough this brings the whole planet in danger.

The bottom line is; PROFIT is BLIND!
I can not trust the profit orientated corporate mind anymore! You make your choice.

The only way to get out of this corporate picture is to reclaim the soil and get at least 30% of population back to small-scale organic farming based on biodiversity and local distribution. This involves eating seasonal of course.

Please take time to see this documentary about slave children making our chocolate;
