Let's just be blunt here- modern agriculture is not what it used to be anymore. There's a reason why disease and particularity autoimmune disease is skyrocketing. Do you think it's a coincidence? Do you think it was like this 50 years ago? Nope and the research shows that. All the Frankenstein foods, the pesticides, the growth hormones, the antibiotics... are all things were aware of yet, we continue to dismiss it.
Despite how much awareness we have about food, we continue to have a myopic view; the importance of quality can't be overstated. Never once in my functional medicine education did I hear "sure, conventional meat, dairy and produce are appropriate choices for a healthy diet." _
While I don't expect everyone or my clients to have a diet beyond reproach, perfect diet, there should be a mindful effort to make the best choices possible. People want to say buying organic is expensive, but it's a matter of picking your battles. Pay the lower, significantly cheaper price now or pay it in health care costs if you happen to develop a disease or get ill.
And if you already have a serious condition like autoimmunity, it's non-negotiable. I don't know what it will take for people to wake up and realize that, but it's no different than taking action on your health. Start today making more sensible food choices. Start caring about the quality of the food. Start being proactive on your health and taking prophylactic measures. Start taking action on an already sick body.
It's only a matter of time before you have no choice but to take action - it just comes down to how much of a financial burden and frustration you want to deal with when conventional medicine fails you, and you keep spinning your wheels jumping from doctor to doctor.
