Food Ads – 20 November 2006
Have you noticed how certain “food” commercials attempt to
brainwash the public with ridiculous labeling of their products as
being “manly”? And have you noticed how these “macho” products are, in
reality, mostly derived from animals who suffer excruciating emotional
and physical torture? These ads promote myths and fears about “getting
enough protein” and “calcium.” The manufacturers of this junk food,
that contains animal body parts and secretions, also know how to
appeal to the fears of parents of young children.
On the other hand, a salad dressing – that, incidentally, also
contains some animal-derived ingredients – commercial will show a girl
dreamily picking at her salad.
Isn’t it interesting how even something like sexual insecurity can
affect people’s choices – even of the food they eat? The irony of all
this is that these much-advertised products tend to undermine the health
and most likely have the opposite effect of that which is sought.
I wonder if all this emphasis on “macho food” consumption contributes
to all the “erectile dysfunction” (ED) that must be fueling the sale of
all the pharmaceuticals for this problem.
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
