Processed Food Compared To Drugs & Nicotine
When cigarettes became popular in the late 1960s there were warning labels slapped on every package and box to ensure that customers were aware that smoking was dangerous for their health. There were graphic images that warned against lung cancer and the dangerous, addictive effect of nicotine.
Now, there is no such warning for processed foods. Research has shown that the excessive consumption of processed foods like soft drinks, chips, chocolates, and so on contains exceedingly high amounts of sugar, sodium and preservatives which can lead to health problems like cancer, diabetes, obesity, kidney problems, Alzheimer’s and all manner of other diseases. What makes matters worse is that these processed foods are highly addictive just like cigarettes. So why are there no warning labels?
The Enemy’s Plan to Reduce the Population through Food Drugs
When the Bible warns us that we wrestle against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12), these “high places” are in government. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of how dangerous and highly addictive processed foods are, but they do nothing to stop their distribution to our grocery stores.
They have been complicit in destroying the health of the population and controlling population growth by not slapping warning labels on these sugary drinks and processed foods the same way they do to cigarettes, leading to deaths and fatal diseases.
There is a general understanding in the population that processed foods are unhealthy but what if the FDA were to tell them that processed foods have the same addictive effects as drugs? That, to a large degree, processed foods are drugs? I assure you that pandemonium would ensue.
People would stop giving their children these processed foods with high sodium and sugar content and people would seek out healthier alternatives to sustain themselves, thus breaking the addictive cycle.
But this is what the FDA does NOT want.
The FDA & Food Manufacturers
The United States of America is built on the back of consumerism and capitalism. It protects the need of the population to produce and consume whatever they want in whatever quantities they want. And so, to restrict the supply of unprocessed foods would mean that major manufacturing industries that lend their support to the FDA would withdraw their support and major manufacturing tycoons would withdraw their support from the government that prohibits the distribution of processed food.
So there is a network of evil that ensures that our friends, families and community remain reliant on highly processed and addictive foods that cause cancer and other deadly diseases because it benefits them financially.
In the ancient days, the Lord gave the Israelites instructions concerning food. There were food laws that govern every Israelite’s nutrition and food intake (Leviticus 11:1-47; Deuteronomy 14:11-20). Let us get back to that place where we ask the Lord to guide us about what to put in our bodies because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, He surely should have a say about what enters His temple (1 Corinthians 6:19).
As Children of God, let us not let our bellies be our god as our dear brother Paul admonishes us in Philippians 3:19. Let us, instead, ask the Lord for discernment so that we might see the plans of the enemy as it relates to these processed foods at the grocery store. Let us seek the counsel of Yeshua (Jesus) in this war against our health and our bodies.
