globesity: fat's new frontier
Watching babies drink coca cola from the bottle is not easy viewing but if you missed Foreign Correspondent's special on global obesity and want to witness the damage processed foods coupled with powerful marketing are doing in some of the world's developing countries you can watch the episode here.
Viewing the program strengthened my commitment to eating wholefoods and my resolve to grow this blog and do anything and everything I can to spread the word about wholefoods, to inspire people to eat well, to treasure their health and to campaign to change the world one bite at a time.
Don't even get me started on the Olympic sponsorship by unmentionable fast food company and already mentioned soft drink company. Really. The gods must sit back and laugh at human stupidity.
Not my usual sunny way to finish the week I know but it had to be said. And there's more to say but I'll leave that for next week.
For now my thoughts turn to putting the finishing touches on gifts and treasures for River's birthday celebration this weekend as he turns six. I wish you all a happy weekend. I hope it is nourishing in every sense of the word. x
