Between a Rock and a Hard Place – 9 February 2007
A TV commercial of a large producer of chicken products features a
child who is obviously being “hyperactive.” This ad praises these
products as providing the protein fueling this “energy” which actually
appears more like “hyperactivity.”
When I see such commercials on TV, I think of the many schoolchildren
who are given medications to quiet them down. Isn’t it strange that what
is a “negative” behavior (the hyperactivity in the ad cited above) is
touted as a “positive”?
I wonder how many children who are diagnosed as hyperactive are
really suffering from disorders brought on by the over-processed foods
they are fed, as well as their reactions to dairy products – lactose
intolerance, for example. Yet there appears to be a reluctance to try a
change in diet before prescribing meds which come with unpleasant side
It’s as though these children are victims placed between the
proverbial “rock” of a poor diet and the “hard place” of medications.

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.
