And the solution is right under your nose---it's the FOOD!
Dear President Obama,
Congratulations on winning your second term. I concluded long ago that it would take a second-term president to make any serious headway in replacing our toxic western diet with one that actually promotes health.
If you'd tried to do that in your first term, you would've never been elected for a second term. But if you don't do it now, our only chance for any kind of serious leadership from 1600 Pennsylvania avenue is about eight years away---from the next president who may win a second term.
Why is that? It's because there is simply too much money and special interests riding on maintaining the status quo. But, you're an honest man who doesn't have to worry anymore about those special interests who wish to keep our healthcare, food and pharmaceutical industries just the way they are.
It is inevitable that all of those industries will change dramatically in the next fifty or sixty years, but with strong leadership from the White House, significant progress could be made in less than ten years. Not only can we save $2 trillion on heath care, but we can show the world how to curb global warming, end world hunger, reduce our carbon footprint and end the needless suffering of billions of food animals per week.
Everyone applauds the work that Michelle has been doing with her vegetable garden, Walmart and the school lunch programs. But she is coming up way short when it comes to telling everyone EXACTLY what they should be eating to accomplish the goals outlined in the previous paragraph.
Your good friend, former President Clinton, knows all about what we should be eating, but apparently he's not yet connected the dots when it comes to all of the other global issues that are driven by our food choices. Click here to continue reading...
