Why Go To the Grocery? Part 2

In my last post I revealed how the modern “big and cheap” model of food production and distribution has virtually eliminated the mom-and-pop natural health food stores in favor of the big-box corporate-driven model.  We’ve also learned how the nutrient content of our food has severely declined over the last several decades as man has learned how to use modern technology to mine the soil and grow “Hollywood Foods” – foods that look good but are empty.

We’ve relearned what Hippocrates taught 2400 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”  So now, let’s see what happens to all those natural, organic claims when the big and cheap model supplants the diverse universe of true agricultural craftsman…

These small business folks, with help from suppliers like us, opened thousands and thousands of natural health food stores stocked with the very best products they could find.  But things changed, and we exited this part of the business about a year ago. 

Have you noticed that those mom-and-pop stores are now virtually all gone?  Have you noticed that the big corporate chains have either bought them out or run them out of business? What happened, and does it matter to you as a consumer?
