Obesity is a form of poisoning

I agree with George Monbiot on this one. People are being exploited by the food industry.

The Guardian

I think we need to adopt Marshall McLuhan’s counterculture anthem, popularised by Timothy Leary, “turn on, tune in, and drop out”.

We need to “turn on” to the way the food industry manipulates us.

We need to “tune in” to healthy food choices.

And we need to “drop out” of an exploitative food culture.

We have to stop brutalising animals so someone can buy a burger for 99p. Supermarkets have to stop squeezing farmers to maximise their profits. We have to stop buying cheap foods we don’t need.

Obesity is a form of poisoning.

No one would knowingly ingest cyanide, but that is what is happening. We are being fed poisons, then being blamed for poisoning ourselves.
