Someone I follow on Twitter commented today on this new movement by Whole Foods (the president of which, as you know, recently weighed in on the health care debate), which promotes a low fat diet and discourages the consumption of animal products. The push even goes so far as to place copies of "The China Study" at the checkout.
Imagine the uninformed shopper: "Wow, this grassfed steak looks GREAT!" *picks up pamphlet* "Wait, should I even BUY this great looking grassfed steak?"
It seems a bit hypocritical to be discouraging the consumption of the very animal products that Whole Foods sells.
When it comes to organic, I keep hearing The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" in my head. You know, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
This just pisses me off. Sorry to be blunt.
