This blog used to be called What Would Jesus Eat? and strated with a bit more narrow focus. Here’s what I wrote back then: A wise man once said, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink… Is not life more than food?” (Mt 6:25) Jesus obviously didn’t live in 21st century America. Life is certainly more than food, but it’s also not much without it. Food is at the center of who we are as people and as cultures. We gather around tables, share meals, cook for each other… or at least we used to. Food tells us a lot of things and connects to just about every area of life. That is why I’m convinced that the more we understand our food, what it is and where it comes from, the more we will understand the crazy complex world around us, including issues like globalization, the environment, poverty, hunger and health.

Yes, food is important element of a culture. And what is going on in the US food is chemical intervention leading to a degradation of the population. As a professional chemist, I can see this better than many others. This was the reason why I have started the DyeDiet.com. We need to stop eating “satanic” food colorants and thousands of other food additives crippling our and our children’s bloods and brains.
