“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
I love this quote by Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States.
Born in 1743, it seems that Mr Jefferson was more clued up than many of us currently are in this day and age. It’s time we started taking more responsibility for our health, engaging more in the processes and ingredients of modern medicine, farming methods and food production rather than accepting things at face value. We need to start making our own decisions about what is and isn’t good for us and find ways of obtaining that.
