I used to go to the Family Dollar to buy food for my friend Big John when he ran out of milk or whatever.  Since Big John died last year I haven’t been in a Family Dollar, but I suppose they still sell the same “food” — it’s not really food, but a lot of people eat it.

My friend Leo had entire (unplugged) refrigerators full of canned and wrapped dollar store “food” and it’s a miracle he lived as long as he did.

One time I was looking for Ricola in Meadview and the Family Dollar had a package that looked just like Ricola, same color, writing, etc., but it was the Family Dollar brand and the ingredients were DISGUSTING.  Fortunately Gas n Grub had the real Ricola — made in Switzerland and crap free.  No GMOs and no corn syrup.

So I was happy to see this little video on the importance of “real” food:

Some Doctors Prescribe Food Instead Of Pills To Treat Certain Patients

And be especially careful with NEW medications as they are much more likely to hurt you:


… Few know that systematic reviews of hospital charts found that even properly prescribed drugs (aside from misprescribing, overdosing, or self-prescribing) cause about 1.9 million hospitalizations a year. Another 840,000 hospitalized patients are given drugs that cause serious adverse reactions for a total of 2.74 million serious adverse drug reactions. About 128,000 people die from drugs prescribed to them. This makes prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year. The FDA does not acknowledge these facts and instead gathers a small fraction of the cases. .. [emphasis added]

Choose your poison wisely!
At least 90% of people on drugs wouldn’t need drugs if they ate REAL food.
