Are You A Processed Person?

2009 June 27

Why what do I mean by that?

Let me ask it this way… Are you a conscious person whom stays educated and informed about the choices you make and the long term implications that those choices will have on your life?

If you are reading this… I sure hope you are.

You see… I do my best to stay on top of all the info that comes out daily that concerns my health to make sure that I am in the know and am making the right decisions based upon my current knowledge.

I do my best to make sure that I am not a PROCESSED PERSON!

What exactly is a processed person?

There is a video that came out called Processed People… check this out…

On their website, they give this definition…

Welcome to Processed People

The statistics are terrifying.

Two hundred million Americans are overweight and 100 million are obese. More than 75 million Americans have high blood pressure. 24 million people are diabetic. Heart disease remains the No. 1 cause of death for men and women, followed by stroke and obesity-related cancers. Obesity has overtaken tobacco as the No. 1 cause of preventable deaths in the United States.

Over 50% of bankruptcies are caused by what has become known as “medical debt.”

Fast food, fast medicine, fast news and fast lives have turned many Americans into a sick, uninformed, indebted, “processed” people.

So let me ask you again…

And are we Programmed People? How much do we let ourselves be progammed (to perform a special task or have a specific belief) on what is cool/appropriate/acceptable to eat, drink, wear, drive, etc… I can remember as a kid my sister and I would go thru the grocery store and only put in our cart the products that we could sing the advertisement for – that we had heard on televison! I would say we were very programmable at that age. I can promise you we did not read the labels.

This relates to other things besides the foods we purchase – it is what is in and what is out- the trends – who sets those? Sales people, politics, magazines, tv, radio, song lyrics, movies. We get it all from the media and how often do we think: ‘is this what I want? Is this best for me right now? What will this do for me? Why do I want this?’ This is no ones fault and we can’t blame anyone else. It is part of our growth period in becoming more conscious. There are many realties on this planet. It is about making the choice to make choices that are based on our own criteria. Developing that criteria that fits for us and who we are and what we are doing, what are our values and what do we want to accomplish..really what do we want to accomplish – for ourselves and for our families and for humanity. I love the 7th generation concept. How will this effect the next 7 generations? Thanks Shawn.
