Understanding Food and the Ecology
For those who love to read here is a book IN DEFENSE OF FOOD – Thank you Bentley.
Here is another topic Barbadians delight in giving lip service. We have reached a point where we do not intend to attack the serious issue of food security. Equally important is that we do not use our intelligence and formal education to understand how different foods we consume affect our health.
We express horror at the rising numbers of NCDs in Barbados. However the authorities hail the expansion of the Burger Kings, Chefettes and other fast foods outlets as an economic boon. We glamorize the convenience of eating ‘junk food’ because it is the right of the individual to eat as they please, YET, taxpayers will have to pick up the tab when the national health budget is allocated.
Expect to read the usual empty headed nonsense by a few who like a broken lock will opine –
Blame the BLP!
Blame the DLP!
Blame the White man!
Blame the man in the mirror?
