It’s true. I’ve long suspected there was something wrong, some sort of malady that kept me from swallowing the pabulum of the press and starry-eyed bureaucrats. Now I have proof.
With the Obama administration bringing us closer and closer each day to his Marxist ideals and starting smear campaigns against anyone that protests, I can’t help but wonder at times if our government hasn’t opened an office similar to the KGB’s, “Office of Disinformation.” We’re constantly being told things that anyone with common sense can tell can’t be right. Sure, it sounds good, and sure, we’d like to believe it’s true. But if your brain hasn’t been addled by government approved (and encouraged) poor nutrition, water fluoridation, and other chemical onslaughts, you know barn yard droppings when you see them.
But don’t you dare question or raise your voice in protest. They’ll have a label for you too.
In this morning’s email news, I read about the latest effort to discredit anyone that questions Big Brother’s words of wisdom regarding nutrition. Just like anyone that complains about our elected officials failing to uphold the Constitution (that they’ve sworn to uphold) is designated a ‘radical’ or worse; we now have an official term to describe those of us that wish to make intelligent decisions about the food we eat. We can now put on our resume that we suffer from, “Orthorexia Nervosa,” a new and growing psychological disorder.
That means that those of us that eat healthy, protest fluoridation, raise our voices about FDA standards, question the effectiveness of the EPA, or in some other way, possibly even something as horrific as buying organic foods at a farmers market instead of our government approved grocery store, will be labeled as suffering from ‘orthorexia nervosa’ and summarily ignored and dismissed.
Translated from Latin, what “Orthorexia nervosa” means is, “nervous about the food you eat.” I can’t help but wonder, if like me you habitually read the food labels, would that qualify us to be upgraded to “Orthorexia paranoia” status? What about the many medical professionals, like Drs. Allan Spreen, Joseph Mercola, and Andrew Weil, that have been urging us for years to stay away from unhealthy, processed foods? As ringleaders of a sort, shouldn’t they be institutionalized immediately? I can just picture all of us confined to a mental institution, picking at our food plates, trying to find some morsel of good nutrition.
According to, “The Guardian,” which bills itself as the leading voice of liberalism, “The obsession about which foods are “good” and which are “bad” means orthorexics can end up malnourished.” Does that mean they think those of us in good health because of exercise and good nutrition are malnurished and the growing ranks of people that are obese, have plague filled arteries, and a medicine cabinet full of pills are doing it right? But in one way, they’re right. There’s so little ‘good’ nurishment out there that if you don’t know where to find it or how to get it, you could wind up with very little to eat.
Here’s another quote: “Orthorexics commonly have rigid rules around eating. Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions.”
You got that right baby! Most of those are off my list for sure. But the one I really love is this one: “Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out.”
Just like Al Gore, this columnist doesn’t know that herbicides ARE pesticides and the use of both is redundant. But that aside, why in the name of God’s Green Earth would anyone intentionally want to consume poison? By their kind of thinking, slow, intentional suicide (as long as it keeps the medical industry busy) is perfectly sane, but being selective about the food you eat is a mental disorder. I don’t guess I’ll ever understand liberal logic.
Personally, I think I’ll have a t-shirt made up that says, “I have Orthorexia Nervosa and You Should Too!”
