Why Junk Food Is So Cheap

Why Junk Food Is So Cheap

Hello everyone, It’s Butter Bob and I’m out
here in the corn field.
And let me tell you something, it’s hot here
in Tennessee today.
You know, have you ever wondered why junk
food is so cheap?
And good food like, say farm raised eggs,
organic grass fed meat, fruits and vegetables
are so expensive?
But junk food, made out of corn and wheat,
is so cheap?
Well I’ll tell you why.
You know, from 1995 to 2012, the Federal Government
of the United States spent 253 billion dollars
in subsidies for crops like these, like this
corn right here.
And you know what’s going to make you mad?
Seventy-five percent of that money, went to
less than four percent of the farmers in this
country.
In other words, big business getting big tax
dollar subsidies to produce food that is killing
us.
Making it easier and cheaper to a snack cake,
or some kind of junk food chip, than it is
for working people to buy fruits and vegetables,
and good grass fed meat, full fat cheese,
and all the other things that would be really
good for them.
But they can’t afford it, because this is
taking over.
In other words, when they supplement the raising
of these crops, it brings the price down.
And you know, everything that you can imagine
is made out of this stuff.
That’s why, when you go to the store, you’ll
see it.
Corn is in everything.
Or things made out of corn, high-fructose
corn syrup, it’s in everything.
A sweetener, made out of subsidized corn.
Wheat is in everything.
Every junk food that you can imagine.
But cotton?
Believe me, cottonseed oil.
It’s in everything, you can see it all over,
in all kinds of products.
Soybean oil, in everything.
Corn oil, in everything.
You see, why are these products so cheap?
I’ll tell you why, because we’ve paid for
them twice.
We paid for them out of the subsidies, and
we’re paying again at the store.
And yeah, it’s cheap, but folks, no matter
whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independent,
Conservative or Liberal, our politicians,
regardless, have sold us out.
They’ve sold us out to the highest bidder.
They sold us out to big food.
And you know what?
Big Food, like Coke and Pepsi, some of these
big producers of junk food, they actually
sponsor Nutrition conferences.
They, they, there’s money going into these
things.
There’s money going into the research places
that study food.
And believe me, they’re going to come out
with the outcome that they want.
Folks, we have seen, our own self, that if
you’ve been on this diet very long, you’ve
seen all the advice they’ve given us, is wrong.
This is a problem.
And you know what, we, none of us, at least
probably no one that’s in my group, that’s
watching this video, has any power to do very
much about this.
Believe me, we don’t.
But folks, we can’t buy a politician, but
I’ll tell you what we can do.
We can use the power of our own billfold,
our own pocketbook, to stop buying this stuff.
And when we stop buying it, by the million,
believe me, they’re going to take notice.
They’re going to take notice in the halls
of Congress, they’re going to take notice
in the Board Rooms of America, that we’re
fed up and we’re on to them.
We’re on to their little game.
Guys, we have to take our health back into
our own hands.
When we share our story on social media, how
we’re getting better, we’re defeating these
people.
When we stop buying their products, we’re
defeating these people.
When we spread the word and we get off of
our drugs, that we have to be on, supposedly
to get better.
And we’re able to get well and we’re off of
those drugs, we’re spreading the word, and
we’re putting the FEAR into the people who
have made us sick and at the same time took
our money, bought our politicians, bought
the research organizations to shew science
their own way.
You know what?
Thank goodness for the internet, because we,
together, are changing not just our health,
but our very culture.
Thank you for listening.
Bye, Bye.
