ANALYSIS: Food rationing to be announced in America, followed by FOOD RIOTS and social unrest~Biden regime will invoke martial law in 2022



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) In today’s analysis, offered both here in article format as well as in the Situation Update podcast below, I reveal why food rationing is coming to America, followed by food riots.

This is an analysis based on current data points and trends, including the collapse of agricultural fertilizer production (affecting crop yields throughout 2022), the collapse of the supply chain for agricultural machinery parts (no parts for tractors, planters, combines, etc.), the continued lockdown-induced labor shortage crisis (affecting food production and processing companies) and the obvious desire by the Biden regime to cause maximum suffering and death across America via vaccine mandates, economic collapse and engineered scarcity.

The implications of all this will extend throughout 2022 and will almost certainly persist into 2023.

We can already see the food shortages on the horizon, due to crop production cycles

While finance predictions are very difficult to nail down due to the ability of financial markets to suddenly shift, agriculture is dependent on natural cycles and time requirements such as seasons, plant growth timelines, availability of fertilizer, costs of fuel, transportation infrastructure, etc. Thus, when agricultural inputs begin failing in the present, it doesn’t require rocket science to project the failures in crop production one or more seasons into the future.

I describe this as future results being “baked in” based on today’s conditions and inputs. Right now, in late 2021, we are seeing the collapse of supply lines for tractor parts, large-scale oil storage facilities projecting a crisis in crude oil shortfall in just the next few weeks, soaring energy prices across Europe, energy shortages on a global scale, the shutting down of fertilizer plants, ammonia plants and greenhouse operations, breakdowns in transportation logistics and deliveries, logjammed ports and container traffic congestion, and many other factors that essentially describe a kind of “siege warfare” under which the United States is currently suffering. (We are living in a “theater of war” right now, and engineered scarcity is just one of the many weapons that have been deployed in that war.)

Knowing all this, we can easily conclude that food availability is going to be crushed through the remainder of 2021, all through 2022, and likely well into 2023.

It is no longer a question of whether food scarcity will dramatically worsen over this time period; it’s merely a question of why it is being engineered (and how long it lasts).

Food scarcity is necessary to provoke food riots and social unrest leading to martial law and the suspension of elections

The Democrats know they’re going to be politically slaughtered in the 2022 mid-term elections if those elections are allowed to take place. If you thought the, “Let’s Go Brandon” chant was popular now, just wait for America to endure another year of starvation, food inflation, supply chain disruptions, border invasions, and money printing madness that loots the American pocketbook.

With Democrats already a lawless cabal of heartless criminals who despise the American people, they have been desperately looking for a way to install themselves into permanent power and suspend elections indefinitely. Working backward from this goal, this outcome can only be accomplished by declaring martial law and suspending the US Constitution and democratic elections.

To declare martial law, they need widespread social chaos, with millions of people in the streets, wreaking havoc across the nation (the more havoc, the better for the Democrats as they attempt to justify martial law or the invocation of the Insurrection Act). But how do you anger people enough to convince millions of them to take to the streets?

You starve them out.

As I pointed out yesterday, America is just nine meals away from anarchy. That means nine missed meals, of course, and engineered food scarcity will ensure those meals are missed in the months ahead.

As people go hungry, anger will rise and they will take to the streets. As the chaos spreads, Biden’s handlers will respond with increasingly authoritarian police state responses. They’re already setting up the narrative by characterizing Americans who buy extra food as “hoarders,” by the way. This is just the beginning of what will soon be coming, including food rationing on a nationwide basis.

The food rationing will have to be enforced by tying food purchases to a person’s ID, which means we will soon have a nation where you don’t need an ID to vote, but you do need an ID to buy food. If this sounds infuriating, that’s the whole point. They want people to get mad and take to the streets, creating the backdrop for the deep state false flag operations that can be used to attempt nationwide gun confiscation and the rolling out of martial law.

Have no doubts that deep state operatives are right now prepping the fertilizer bomb trucks and chemical weapons stockpiles necessary to pull this off. As the crowds flood into the streets, the deep state will stage terrorism attacks to blame patriots, Christians, and the unvaccinated. The 2022 mid-terms will be suspended, and Biden might even plunge us into a theatrical war with China — which might even be staged — to declare a nationwide lockdown during “a time of war.”

There’s nothing they won’t do to stop the American people from throwing them out of power.

Mass starvation, mass depopulation via bioweapons, deep state chemical weapons attacks on the domestic population, engineered financial collapse… these are just a few of the weapons now at the disposal of America’s enemies within, and they have no hesitation whatsoever in using them to demonize their political opponents and shore up their authoritarian power, transforming America into a full-blown medical police state.

The war on America has only just begun. It’s going to get a lot worse by Christmas, and then even worse in 2022.

Amazon caught throwing away food even as supply chain woes threaten to starve America

(Natural News) As many as nine million children in America today live in a household where they do not get enough to eat every day because their parents cannot afford it. The corrupt Amazon retail behemoth, meanwhile, is reportedly tossing perfectly good food in the trash due to an “excess.”

Jeff Bezos’ tech monopoly is throwing away thousands of pounds of food every single day, according to an anonymous whistleblower within the company who says the delivery giant is running an inefficient, unsustainable and highly wasteful business.

The insider says that every night at the Amazon Fresh fulfillment center where this person works, workers are instructed to throw away food that is dated days or even weeks out for its expiration. In other words, it is perfectly good food being thrown straight in the trash.

According to this same person, all Amazon warehouses are tossing perfectly good food, though the original post claiming this was altered due to fear by the individual that Amazon might try to sue if it could be shown that technically not all of them are doing this.

The insider wrote that “these food items are being scanned out as ‘exp-removal-donate,” but instead of actually being donated they are being trashed.

“These items are on the same list as our daily donations lists we have,” this person further revealed. “Canned, boxed, toiletry and other are donated accordingly but refrigerated and frozen are not at my facility at least.”

Amazon is evil

Because new product is constantly arriving, Amazon is ordering its employees to trash the old stock even when it is still fresh and non-expired. This is creating an incredible amount of waste, which is truly obscene considering how many people are struggling right now due to inflation and the collapse of the global supply chain.

“I have seen multiple pallets come in to the warehouse to be immediately thrown away as we did not have the storage capacity to store said product,” the insider added.

Instead of contacting local food banks to try to distribute all this food instead of wasting it, Amazon has decided to just toss it all in order to keep its profit margins high while creating what appears to be artificial scarcity.

“There are plenty of food banks and resources out there that are willing to pick up items in a refrigerated / frozen truck to disperse to ensure the items do not perish or go bad in transit,” the insider added.

Even more disturbing is the fact that Amazon also appears to be writing off all this wasted food as “donated” in order to receive a tax break on it. None of it is actually being donated, though, unless donating means shoving it all into a trash compactor before hauling it all off to the local dump.

“Insanely enough, this practice of destruction by Amazon is not uncommon. A similar whistleblower came out earlier this year and provided hidden camera footage which showed Amazon destroying products like smart TVs, laptops, drones, hairdryers, top of the range headphones, computer drives, books galore, thousands of sealed face masks – all sorted into boxes marked ‘destroy,'” added DC Clothesline in a report.

“Apparently, there isn’t any place to store the food and other items and rather than donate them to charity, Amazon destroys them.”

None of this is surprising, at least not to many people. Amazon probably would not even exist, after all, were it not for “cellar boxing” securities fraud by Wall Street against its competitors, but alas that is a different topic for a different time.

ALLIE BETH STUCKEY: Food Shortages & Slow Supply Chains: What’s Going On?~Guest: Ross Kennedy

Today we're talking to Ross Kennedy, an expert in worldwide shipping and supply lines. There are lots of cargo ships just off the coast of America, but they're not able to dock and unload their goods, and in turn, this is resulting in shortages all over the nation. Kennedy explains how this happened and how delicate our system really is. COVID really threw a wrench into the works of our supply lines, and a year later we're really starting to see the effects. Kennedy also points out how America's dependence on China makes situations like this worse and offers some solutions to the globalist trade system that is failing us.

Lebanon plunged into darkness, India faces rolling blackouts, NYC pharmacy shelves BARE as global collapse accelerates, leading to rolling blackouts across the USA

(Natural News) Retail shelves at CVS, Walgreens, and Duane Reade stores are now “virtually bare” in NYC, warns the UK Daily Mail in a Sunday news story. “Shelves in pharmacies across New York City have been left nearly barren because supplies are not getting through amid an ongoing global squeeze,” the paper reports, citing the collapse of the global supply chain.

This means the reality of global COVID communism is finally starting to sink in, and all those Biden-supporting NYC liberals who thought Democrats would usher in an era of abundance and utopia are beginning to experience their own heads exploding as they witness the reality that elections have consequences.

As the UK Daily Mail further warns:

Experts have warned the government to intervene or face spiraling inflation and unemployment, as rocketing demand for goods in short supply pushes their prices up.

US consumers have already seen prices of everyday items rise in recent months, with economists warning of an extended period of inflation that will push up the cost of living.

Meanwhile, the No. 1 song being shouted at sporting events across America is, “F#ck Joe Biden.” Or, as the laughably dishonest left-wing media reports it, “Let’s go Brandon!”

The entire power grid of Lebanon just went down… and will likely stay down for days

As Sky News reported this weekend, the entire power grid of the nation of Lebanon has gone down due to a lack of fuel. As Sky News explains:

Lebanon’s electricity grid has shut down entirely after the country’s two main power stations ran out of fuel.

The al Zahrani and the Deir Ammar power stations stopped working after supplies of diesel were apparently exhausted, and energy production dropped to below 200 megawatts.

The lack of diesel fuel is taking place due to a global transportation and logistics collapse that has been artificially engineered by COVID lockdowns. The goal of the globalists is the total extermination of humanity, and part of the process of achieving that goal is to destroy the infrastructure that keeps humanity alive (in addition to releasing engineered biological weapons and deliberately administering “vaccines” containing those bioweapons).

India now facing rolling blackouts as the global supply chain collapse extends its reach

In addition to China’s rolling blackouts that have so far affected 20 out of 31 Chinese provinces (and shuttered manufacturing across those areas), “A minister in Indian capital New Delhi warned Sunday that blackouts could rock the massive city over the next two days,” reports Zero Hedge. “But the nation’s capital city isn’t alone in suffering energy shortages: it joins two Indian states – Tamil Nadu and Odisha – which have issued warnings about the growing possibility of blackouts due to dwindling coal supplies.”

From ZH:

According to Delhi’s Power Minister Satyendra Jain, more than half of India’s 135 coal-fired power plants, which supply around 70% of the country’s electricity, have seen their stocks depleted to such low levels that they only have enough to guarantee power for three days before the capital city is hit with blackouts. Typically, they’re supposed to keep a buffer supply of at least one month. But these aren’t normal times.

“If coal supply doesn’t improve, there will be a blackout in Delhi in two days,” the national capital’s Power Minister Satyendra Jain said today. “The coal-fired power plants that supply electricity to Delhi have to keep a minimum coal stock of one month, but now it has come down to one day,” Mr Jain said.

The South China Morning Post recently documented China’s collapsing power grid, explaining that, “China’s army of small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMEs) have been hit hard by the nationwide power crisis, with outputs slashed and sweltering working conditions taking their toll, while panic buying of raw materials and goods is becoming commonplace over fears prices are set to soar.”

Factories are being shuttered due to the lack of energy, causing China’s domestic productivity to plunge. From the SCMP:

“Some factories are even being banned from producing [any goods] for six days after operating for only one day. It sounds so ridiculous, but it‘s true.”

A global coal shortage is being engineered to cause blackouts, empty shelves, and mass starvation during the “Dark Winter” die-off

What readers of this site already know — but the oblivious masses are only now starting to figure out — is that global supply chains are being deliberately disrupted to cause severe scarcity in energy, food, consumer goods, medicines, and other products.

This engineered collapse is part of what you might call the “COVID communism” takeover of the world, where rogue governments dedicated to global depopulation are dismantling free-market mechanisms via pandemic lockdowns and mass firings of those who have natural immunity (and who don’t want to take the so-called “vaccine” injection, since they contain deadly spike protein nanoparticles).

With store shelves already going empty across the United States, those who mocked preppers will soon be begging preppers for extra supplies. That’s the topic of today’s short podcast:

Get ready for rolling blackouts across America this winter

The Epoch Times is also reporting on the coming “Winter blackouts” that are anticipated across the USA, citing Ernie Thrasher, head of Xcoal Energy & Resources, via a Bloomberg report:

“That whole supply chain is stretched beyond its limits,” said Thrasher, whose Pennsylvania-based company works in coal logistics. “It’s going to be a challenging winter for us here in the United States.”

Rolling blackouts across America would, of course, lead to empty grocery store shelves and panicked non-preppers who have long mocked preppers as “kooks.” As they are starving to death and freezing to death this winter, perhaps they can ponder the mechanisms by which they have become so utterly oblivious to the real world unfolding around them. It is a notable pattern of Democrats and Leftists, of course: They are incapable of processing reality and tend to live in delusional bubbles projected by propaganda controllers and social engineers.

But nothing breaks the spell of delusion faster than a growling stomach and freezing toes. What’s coming this winter looks to be the ultimate red pill experience as millions of Americans wake up and realize that voting for communism has horrible consequences.

And living in cities or states that have outlawed wood-burning stoves is just plain stupid.

Yesterday, we warned that Augason Farms, a major food supplier to preppers and outdoors enthusiasts, has ceased operations for 90 days amid severe supply chain disruptions:

Preparedness POP QUIZ, Merck busted covering up aborted human fetal cells, European nations BAN covid vax for younger people



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) In addition to breaking news on the covid vaccine being banned in Scandinavian countries (for certain age groups), and China’s warning of imminent war against the world, today’s Situation Update begins with a Preparedness Pop Quiz that covers the top 10 areas where we all need to be prepared.

Listen to the first 25 minutes of today’s podcast (below) and give yourself 10 points for each of the 10 preparedness areas you have covered (such as home food production, backup comms, community networking, etc.) If you score 70 or better, you’re well prepared! If you score under 50, you’re behind the curve and need to take steps to get caught up.

Mainstream media tries to trick the public with “new math” about vaccine-injured people in the hospitals

To try to hide the full extent of vaccine injuries and deaths now taking place around the world, the lying mainstream media is making statements such as, “Nearly 13% of hospital patients with confirmed Covid were unvaccinated.” This means, of course, that 87% of hospital patients were previously vaccinated.

Other stories run by the BBC inadvertently confirm that two-thirds of COVID “cases” in the UK are taking place among vaccinated people. See full details here.

They are hoping that nobody can remember how to do basic math. (They might be right…)

Scandinavian nations ban the use of Moderna’s covid vaccine in younger people

Due to alarming numbers of young people suffering myocarditis, blood clots, and heart attacks, Sweden, Denmark, and now Finland have all banned the Moderna covid vaccine in younger age groups (anyone under 30 in one case).

The US, UK, and Canada, meanwhile, are happy to keep murdering young people with vaccines since that helps achieve their global depopulation agenda. Somehow, scientists in Scandinavian countries aren’t yet all-in with the depopulation plandemic scheme. More details here.

Energy and power grids rapidly collapsing in Asia and Europe

In China, 21 out of 30 provinces are now experiencing rolling blackouts as power generation bandwidth crumbles due to shortages of coal. According to the South China Morning Post, some factories are currently operating just one day per week.

US coal production can’t keep up with global demand, which continues to soar. Meanwhile, the natural gas shortage/price increase across Europe has fertilizer producers reeling. Many have shut down, and just two days ago, Germany’s largest ammonia plant slashed its output and is warning it may have to shutter the entire operation.

The upshot is that skyrocketing energy prices (and outages) are going to thrust millions of people across Europe and China into poverty as manufacturing is heavily impacted. The coming winter won’t be easy to handle without affordable heat, either.

The natural gas shortage/price spike is also affecting greenhouse food production across Europe. This, in addition to the fertilizer plants shutting down, means Europe will face extreme food scarcity following the 2022 harvest. This will extend into the Fall of 2022 and may continue long after.

It’s a good thing that fasting is good for your health!

Colorado health care system orders woman to DIE from lack of a kidney transplant because she won’t take the spike protein injection

The University of Colorado Health system is now operating in full-blown “death panel” mode, removing a woman from a kidney transplant list because she won’t take the spike protein injection.

Apparently, in order to receive an organ transplant in Colorado, you must first destroy your healthy organs with a bioweapon injection. Only then are you allowed to receive replacement organs, most of which are probably already contaminated with spike protein nanoparticles themselves.

Read the following letter, sent to the patient by UCHealth administrator Katherine Hamann, the Kidney Transplant Coordinator for the hospital:

(See hi-res image at this link…)

Kidneys are routinely damaged by vaccines, of course, due to the mercury content found in some flu shots as well as aluminum adjuvants. So the vaccine industry damages your kidneys, driving you to a transplant, then orders you to take yet more toxic injections in order to receive the transplant.

It’s all a cruel scam designed to generate repeat profits for Big Pharma and the organ harvesting hospitals that profit from organ trafficking.

It is an industry of death, and now that industry is openly running death panels. Is anyone really surprised? Sadly, all the people who will soon die from covid vaccines can’t be tapped for organ donations since their organs are destroyed by the spike protein.

But that’s probably the whole point.

The Dark Winter DIE-OFF begins: Mass vaccination deaths collide with engineered starvation and the collapse of gas and energy



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) The so-called Dark Winter is actually a die-off plan to exterminate humanity, and the vectors of attack against human beings include mass vaccination genocide, engineered food supply collapse (leading to mass starvation), financial sector disruptions and an accelerating supply collapse of energy (gasoline, natural gas) needed to heat homes, make fertilizer and power transportation.

We are also watching in horror as this accelerating collapse bleeds into shipping and delivery companies (like FedEx) who are just about on the brink of suspending major services due to a lack of competent workers.

Meanwhile, 70+ container ships are stacked up outside the Los Angeles port, as criminal governors like Newsom deliberately worsen the supply line restrictions by enforcing senseless covid lockdowns that deprive the ports of desperately needed workers.

The traitors in charge are squeezing off all the chokepoints of infrastructure that keep human beings alive.

If they succeed, they will quickly plunge America (and other nations) into third-world conditions of mass famine, destitution, homelessness, violence, and despair. And have you noticed how quickly this is all materializing?

This is all by design, and it’s accelerating by the day

You are probably already noticing the grocery shortages that are rapidly spreading across North America. Grocers, school districts and food manufacturers that typically order large quantities of food supplies are seeing their orders cut by up to 50% in terms of actual delivery. At the commercial level, in other words, the food supply has already collapsed by nearly 50%. This is only now beginning to trickle into the retail sector of the food industry, where grocers are desperately trying to fill empty shelves with something — anything — just to avoid looking like they’re out of stock.

Under Biden and the covid tyrants, America is being rapidly transformed into Venezuela. This is not a coincidence. Yet many Americans are still stuck in denial, pretending things will all just “get back to normal” if enough people take deadly spike protein injections.

Today Joe Biden claimed that 98% of Americans would need to get vaccinated before we can return to normal. It’s obvious they’re gearing up to enforce vaccine mandates at gunpoint to try to hit that 98% target, at which point they will of course blame the remaining 2% for all the post-vaccine injuries and deaths among the 98%.

Remember when the goal was just 70%? Remember when we were told that “herd immunity” would protect us if we could get the majority of people vaccinated? Now that’s been thrown out the window, right along with the concept of natural immunity which the insane left-wing media now calls a “dangerous theory.”

Each booster shot, of course, is designed to destroy another 25% of your immune system’s response capability (white blood cells, mostly). Listen to this nurse explain how the boosters are designed to obliterate your immune response:

This winter, all the factors combine to achieve a mass die-off

If the anti-human globalists are able to pull off their plans, we will see millions of Americans dead over the next six months alone. Potential defenses against this assault include ivermectin, food preparedness, self-reliance, and so on, so spread the word about these important truths to help save lives.

With far too many sheeple still going along with the vaccine mandates and mask requirements, what globalists have now confirmed is that 90% of humanity is incredibly easy for them to kill. Most people have zero backup food supplies, no backup water storage, no ability to produce their own food, no means of self-defense, no backup communications, etc. I cover this in a short podcast update today (this is not the main podcast, the full one is below:

Thus, globalists cutting off food, fuel, power, and banking transactions for a mere 90 days would likely achieve a huge die-off — perhaps 70% of the population or so, since the masses are completely oblivious to even the most basic survival skills. As you’ll notice, the food supply is being cut off right now. The power grid is being shut off in China. Fuel supplies are collapsing in the UK. Hospitals are collapsing to the point where National Guard troops are now being deployed to replace the health care workers who were fired for refusing to get jabbed. (See this video on We Are Change.)

The State of New York is expected to declare a state of emergency due to these hospital staffing shortages — all of which the government caused itself!

Meanwhile, the Evergrande Ponzi scheme in China is already spreading like a contagion to other property developers, while non-China bondholders have already been told they will never get paid what they are owed. The contagion will accelerate through the financial sector. This is bigger than Lehman Brothers. It’s way bigger than the 2008 sub-prime housing bubble collapse.

When you start combining these engineered layers of collapse: Food, energy, finance, medicine, etc., where does that lead civilization for the next several months? Right into the abyss. Expect a mass die-off. Actually, it has already begun, with left-wing media now acknowledging there is a spike in all-cause mortality in 2021, but insisting it couldn’t possibly be related to covid vaccines.

How will they try to explain it away when millions are dead?

Today’s Situation Update podcast provides more answers and discussion, along with a critical message (at the very beginning) about how to make your own food grow system that works without electricity.

The link for that system, which is based on the “Kratky” paper from Hawaii, is found at this link:

It’s called, “A Suspended Net-Pot, Non-Circulating Hydroponic Method for Commercial Production of Leafy, Romaine, and Semi-Head Lettuce.”

Nestlé caught sending junk food into Amazon (Brazil) rainforests where children as young as seven are now morbidly obese

Cómo un 'supermercado flotante' de Nestlé con comida chatarra ultraprocesada causó una crisis de obesidad en los niños en el corazón del Amazonas

BBC documentary What Are We Feeding Our Kids? saw doctor Chris van Tulleken meet Leo, an overweight child who lives in a region of the Amazon basin



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) A new BBC documentary has exposed Nestlé for deliberately polluting the food supplies of those who live in the Amazon rainforest, causing an epidemic of childhood obesity.

To get the indigenous people groups of South America’s pristine jungles hooked on junk food, Nestlé has been sending in “floating supermarkets” filled with processed, highly addictive garbage, which has spiked the obesity rate more than 150 percent since 2002.

Children as young as seven years old are now battling “first world” diseases like obesity and diabetes, thanks to Nestlé. This in turn benefits Big Pharma as well by funneling a whole new generation and market straight into lifelong dependency on pharmaceuticals.

Entitled, “What Are We Feeding Our Kids?” the documentary takes a closer look at the bodily impact of “children’s” foods like chicken nuggets, pizza, and frozen meals. It turns out that such foods create sluggishness, anxiety, and even brain damage, similar to the effects of consuming alcohol.

In some of the remotest areas of Brazil, children are becoming “more and more” obese, says Lizete do Carmo Tenório Novaes, a head school teacher. She directly attributes this epidemic to Nestlé’s floating supermarkets.

“I’ve been to the Amazon several times as a doctor, ten or twelve years ago, in quite remote places and really I just can’t remember ever seeing anyone who was overweight,” stated host Chris van Tulleken.

“I want to find out, are the children here becoming overweight? In a culture, an environment, where historically it has been calorically quite poor – what happens when you flood them with masses of what we would call processed, industrialized food?”

Exporting the Standard American Diet (SAD) to other countries is killing the world’s children

Up until fairly recently, most of the food consumed by Amazonians was minimally processed. Correspondingly, almost nobody in the region was overweight or obese – that is until Nestlé invaded the area’s remote jungles.

Now, young men like Leo, who is featured in the film, are growing female-type breasts and love handles, rather than the muscle tissue they need to be strong and vibrant.

This is what happens when people switch from a natural diet to one composed of refined sugar, processed flour, chemical colorings, artificial preservatives and other toxins.

Since then, van Tulleken stumbled across a local church organization that is trying to help fight the obesity epidemic by teaching locals, and especially young children, about the importance of avoiding processed foods. It is often an uphill battle, though, once a person becomes addicted to junk.

“Sometimes I tell him not to eat it but he comes and buys it anyway,” Leo’s mother revealed about her son’s new eating habits. “He does eat vegetables but he doesn’t like them very much. I don’t know why. He’d rather eat junk food.”

The so-called “Standard American Diet,” also known as SAD, is perhaps the worst thing to ever happen to the Amazon culture. Future generations of Amazonians will now be afflicted by the Trojan Horse of quick and easy junk food that Nestlé fomented on them.

“We do have some cases but it’s not the majority and we want to control it and stop it from progressing,” Leo’s mom added about the obesity problem in her area, which is thankfully not yet – and hopefully never will be – the norm.

At the same time, the past 15 years has marked a lot of changes in eating habits throughout the region. More industrialized products have arrived, whereas in the past people used to eat mainly fish, shrimp, red meat, chicken, and other fresh foods.
