Chicago passed the nation's first green food resolution last Tuesday according to earthascope.com. The resolution encourages healthier eating for Chicago's people. Great news, and smaller areas like my town might follow.
All of this news made me think of corn syrup. The Corn Refiners Association has those commercials touting that corn syrup is ok in moderation, like sugar. More research keeps showing that corn syrup, especially high fructose, is addictive. I could believe (I might still be in denial) that I am addicted. I crave junk food, and when people claim their addictions to Cheetos, candy bars and the like, they might be admitting more than they realize.
The natural movement with food seems positive, but not entirely doable. Addictions, cravings and simple habits may be unchangeable, even with a nation wide movement.
