Faith is an important part of my life. I choose to believe certain things regardless of anything you could tell me to the contrary. Even if I can’t see it. Even if it doesn’t make sense.
That’s why it’s faith.
But while I readily acknowledge faith in my God, so many are denying their faith. Not a faith of religion, but a faith of food.
Because faith is really all you can call most people’s belief in food.
It doesn’t matter what you tell them. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t make sense. People believe what they believe about food. And that’s fine and all. Let’s just make sure we know what it is.
It is not science. It is not verified. It is not fact.
Recently the Food Babe (won’t even link) was called out by Science Babe (click at your own risk!) for her outright scare tactics. The Food Babe following is made up of consumers trying to eat right and feel better. Maybe you heard they demanded Subway remove a substance from their bread because it was a chemical also found in yoga mats. Never mind the chemical is completely fine; it’s such a disturbing thought. And her army made such a fuss Subway actually gave in and changed their bread.
There was no research, no reality. Just a woman who started a rumor and the people who believed her.
What do you believe? What do you know?
Having faith in God is non-negotiable to me. When it comes to things of this world, however, I’m gonna need a little bit more to work with. I want science in the mini-van I buy. I want testing done on my kids’ car seats. And I’ll go with research when it comes to food.
