Ever wonder how huge Corporations convince us toxic products are really good for us? They use words like “Natural” or “Smart Drinks or Foods” when reality is, truly smart people, see right through their expensive ad campaigns. We see through their bright colors and cute jingles and are quite aware, these must be related to the same companies that convinced us that cigarettes and DDT, were good for us.
Here’s a great example of a product, that paid their packaging team to entice consumers with well crafted words.
“Is it really SMART to let yourself fall in love with a snack? OF COURSE IT IS! ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S SMARTFOOD™. “You know you want it. You know where to get it. Now go out there and be SMART about it.” And their slogan: “Smartfood Popcorn - Sign of an INTELLIGENT Life.” It only took two seconds to glance at the nutrition fact label to see that this is really not smart to eat.
Let’s read this ad for Velveeta ™ Advertising Campaign “When creamy is what you crave.”
What does a naked woman have to do with our decision to buy cheese?
Or how about “Betcha can’t eat one.” Frito-Lay ™ is permitted to make all kinds of claims about its fat laden/ fried products, claiming that Lay’s potato chips are now “heart healthy.”
Do you sit on the sofa, watch TV and regret eating a whole bag? You have been programed.
Moving on we seem to desire sliming ourselves fast. Find the Slim-Fast® “Strawberries N Cream” product. You won’t find “strawberries” or “cream” on the label. Sure sounds delicious, but after years and years of research, chemists have discovered how to satisfy our taste buds, with chemicals.
Special K® “What will you gain when you lose.” and "Satisfy your sweet tooth.” Before we buy into a million dollar ad campaign, maybe we should do some due diligence first! Sugar, sugar and more sugar, artificial flavors, toxic vegetable oils, GMO’s and chemicals. Sugar toxicity ends up in the circulatory, endocrine, immune and lymphatic systems. Sugar is a poison to our metabolic system.
Vegetable oils are found in practically every processed food, from salad dressing to mayo to conventional nuts and seeds. These oils are some of the most harmful substances we can put into our body.
And then we have diet foods. Diet-artificially sweetened soft drinks have been associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome.
Is Dove ™ appealing to your body image? The people at Dove have exploited a void in the marketplace. By introducing so-called women with “real” bodies, they distinguished themselves from their competitors. The down side: Whatever toxins we put on the skin, will go trough the skin, be absorbed into the blood, to be filtered in the liver.
If we as women became content with our appearance – accepting our body size, (including breast and thigh size) wrinkles, gray hair, entire industries would collapse.
What ever happened to Truth in Advertising?
If these products put the words: poison, toxic, chemically processed, Genetically Modified, on the labels would you buy them? Some ingredients have been shown to increase heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and more.
Searching for the “Wake Up Button”? It’s time to make Smart Choices with a rock solid resolve to become totally awake about how choices we make today, will impact our lives in our future. It’s Spring Cleaning time. Time to think about eliminating and discarding these “toxic waste products” from our pantry.
There are hundreds of products that need our attention. For blogging purposes, I offer you a handful to begin with. Connie Rogers founder of Bitesizepieces.net
