4. What difference does it make what I eat?

 
Our food is grown on depleted soil, saturated with chemical fertilizers, doused with pesticides and herbicides which are heavy toxins that accumulate in the soil and don’t wash off your food.

Then it is heavily processed, and more and more synthetic ingredients are added.

Mechanized agribusiness has damaged and degraded our cropland, creating dead soil.

Dead soil = dead food!

The life has been processed out of our food. The food you are eating can literally be making you fat and sick.

11. Why can‘t I just use will power?

 
You can use your will power for certain situations and for short-term quick fixes.
