so I ate ear plugs alive with my throat
hoping they’d get lodged deep enough inside the empty spots
that I wouldn’t have to hear you leaving
so I wouldn’t have to listen to my heart keep saying
and I know it left me lookin’ like a knife fight, lady
yeah you know it left me feelin’ like a shotgun shell
you know I know I mighta gone and lost my breath
but I wanna show ya how I found my breath
it was buried under all the wind instruments
hidden in your castanets
if ya ever wanna know how it felt when ya left
yeah if you ever wanna come inside
From the first moment that consumers realized that not all food at the grocery store was created equally, food producers have used fancy packaging, slogans, and logos to help grab the attention of would-be buyers.
The FDA is now seeking to improve this labeling in an effort to produce a more educated consumer. While this is certainly welcome, in the end, it almost makes as much sense to have no regulation over packaging whatsoever. No matter what the FDA does to labels, food producers will find ways around it.
The only real chance we have is to foster brand awareness, perform extensive product research, join trusted review circles, and support local foods in their raw state prepared at home.
