I recently watched a documentary called Hungry for Change. It’s a film about healthy, natural eating and what effects it can have on a person’s lifestyle.

I’d like to start by saying that my friends and I watch a lot of documentaries, like A LOT. If you have Netflix, you’ll understand. Over my many viewings I’ve learned various things about the film industry, sushi, war, and food, but Hungry for Change is the first documentary that has truly inspired me to make a change in my life.

I’m not an unhealthy person – I’m not overweight, I don’t eat a lot of junk food or sugar, and soda is not a part of my diet. The lifestyle change outlined in the film isn’t about weight for me. It’s about putting things in my body that will help my energy, skin, and organs in the long-run.

The diet idea that the film presents is that people should not eat any foods that have additives and chemicals. All foods we consume should be found naturally in the wild. If there’s an ingredient you can’t pronounce, it doesn’t belong in your body. This is how our bodies were made to eat, so why shouldn’t we honor that?

Hungry for Change reveals secrets that the food industry doesn’t want you to know, such as addictive food additives. Many people crave sugar or salt on a weekly, or even daily, basis. That’s because some companies put in artificial ingredients that act like nicotine to make you want more. The reality is, if we stop eating those foods, our body will quickly learn to live without them and we will stop craving them.

The film interviews people who have survived cancer and obesity due to changing their diet. As I said before, I’m not unhealthy, but I do get frequent headaches and bouts of stress. The documentary explains that when people are stressed, they tend to eat. That is the opposite of what a person should do to control stress levels.

The fact is, there are a lot of stresses in our world today. Our country is in constant fear of being bombed, our economy is still at a halt, and school work piles up to an uncontrollable level. In our world today, stress is all around us. By eating natural, organic foods, you can be sure that whatever you’re putting into your body is helping your overall health and wellbeing.

Cantaloupe Safety Symposium Educates On Food Safety

CSU recently hosted the Cantaloupe Safety Symposium. The seminar brought together many food safety experts to discuss recent food born illness outbreaks and preventative measures. In 2011 an outbreak of Listeria from cantaloupes left 147 people sick and resulted in 33 deaths. Just last year an outbreak of salmonella left 261 people ill and resulted in 3 deaths. According to CSU microbiologist and food safety researcher, Dr. Larry Goodrich, cantaloupes are one of the prefect foods for bacterial growth. It’s   flesh contains plenty of water and has an ideal PH level for bacteria to grow. Dr. Goodrich discussed how the producers and farmers need to take more responsibility in creating safer environments so the melons are less likely to be exposed to bacteria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration hopes to implement new regulation policies this year that will impose stricter restrictions on food producers. After studying the outbreaks they hope to plan more inspections of food producing operations in order to help reduce risk. CTV11 reporter Tom Mullen gives tells us a little about the research discussed, why cantaloupes are so vulnerable and how to protect yourself from getting sick.
