3. They give us entertainment that makes us grow dull and weak: radio, television, and the internet.

4. Then they bombard us from the time we are born to the time we die with messages insisting that we eat more and more of their increasingly less nutritious foods.

And, they actually have the nerve to wonder how Americans got so fat?

Maybe obesity is a problem worldwide, but there are far less fat people in Asia, than in the West. Sure in Asia the food is healthier; they don't have GMO's like Monsanto as far as I know. Yes, we need to be better educated about nutricious food !!
