When You Think You Are Healthy ….

Standard

Yes; I’ve written about the problematic nature of micro plastics and thought to myself that I would try to separate myself from this carcinogenic heresy.

Apparently this is easier said than done as plastic permeates all aspects of our convenient, civilised, societies. The picture on top of this entry perfectly illustrates the macabre comedy of the situation: behold a gluten-free, tree-hugger-friendly, lactose-free, over-prized, politically-correct loaf, wrapped in *drum roll* plastic. :/

I guess I’ve realised that the only way to fight this insidious invention is to grow your own vegetables, hunt game, and/or keep farm animals, while making every meal from scratch. Considering how quickly it is possible to devour cheese and crackers, sandwiches or chips for an instance, I don’t even want to think about the amount of work that would go into such an endeavour.

Respect to our ancestors who actually had 6-7 kids on average, while running households without any of our modern appliances, not to forget looking after the farm while the man was out fighting whomever.

Yes our societies are convenient, but this convenience is creepy. Now that I’ve been made aware of that plastics leak into our food and water; I have a hard time not noticing it. Our parents did not grow up with it the same way we Millennials have done, so I wonder what people will say about the plastic obsession in the future and whether or not it will all be banned. :/
