MentalMaskHey, if the World Homicide Organization, excuse me, World Health Organization can make up a pandemic and get away with it, then why should they have all the fun? It seems that our medical community has been busy for quite some time inventing ridiculous diseases.

A California doctor named Steven Bratman determined in 1997 that a “fixation on righteous eating” is a disease he coined as orthorexia nervosa. “Those most susceptible are middle-class, well-educated people who read about food scares in the papers, research them on the internet, and have the time and money to source what they believe to be purer alternatives,” says Ursula Philpot, chair of the British Dietetic Association’s mental health group.

So, let me get this straight. If you are well educated, want to eat healthy, avoid contaminated food and have the money to do so, you are mentally ill. “Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out” (Observer).

Organic food enthusiasts watch out! You are mentally ill, need treatment, and should be checked into a clinic or treatment center. I guess the docs feel that if you can afford to eat healthy, you can afford the thousand dollars it costs for one month’s worth of therapy to cure your obsession with wanting to be healthy.

Evidently, if you don’t care what you shovel into your body, you are mentally balanced. Are these people insane? I think the following from Sibel Edmonds explains it quite clearly:

To Drink or Not to Drink

Once upon a time an evil warlock visits a kingdom and poisons the central well with a potion that drives people mad. The next morning all who drink from that well go crazy. The queen, however, knew about this in advance, and didn’t drink from the communal well. The next day, those who drank the poisoned water came to the queen and accused her of being the crazy one. The queen, aware of what had transpired, was faced with a dilemma: drink from the well and lose her sanity like the rest of her subjects, but remain queen; or don’t drink, remain sane, but be swept from power by those who would view her very sanity as madness.

I might not have medical credentials like the “professionals” who endorse this madness, but I’ve got a solution to the problem. Rid the store shelves of garbage and fill them with healthy food. Get rid of genetically modified filth, pesticide-ridden produce and preservative laden processed foodstuffs. Replace them with clean, organic, locally grown fruits and veggies whose genes have not been blasted in a laboratory with fish genes. Label each product with ALL of the ingredients without subterfuge and then people who want to eat healthy might not have to spend an extraordinary amount of time trying to sort through garbage that masquerades as food in order to stay healthy.

Nah, the medical establishment wouldn’t make as much money off us that way. Couldn’t have that, now could we?
