Sell outs???

It's getting so hard to find a good product to buy anymore. Just when you think you have one, they sell out to a major corporation! Ack! I stumbled across a list recently from another blog, and I am so irritated! Boca owned by Kraft; Dagoba owned by Hershey; Silk owned by Dean; Odwalla owned by Coca-Cola; Naked Juice owned by Pepsi; Muir Glen and Cascadian Farms owned by General Mills. The worst on the list was (it's even hard to type out!) SEEDS OF CHANGE!!!! No!!!! They can't be sell outs. I just can't wrap my mind around it. There is absolutely nothing okay about that. The list says they sold out to Mars/M&M. I have to do a little more research on that before my brain can accept it. *sigh* The "good" companies seems to be falling one by one - Tom's of Maine to Colgate; The Body Shop is partially owned by the worst company on the planet: Nestle. Who's next? Money, money, money, money..... Avoderm dog food sold out; Hain Celestial has a "strategic alliance" with Heinz and *wait for it* Cargill!!! I have so much more to say, but darn it - after this - I need to go meditate so I can sleep tonight.

So we just need to go back to the land and eat only what we can grow? Man life is just getting so hard, and to try to stay away from wheat and gluten is some thing else to. I am still gluten free and drink only soy milk but there is so much out there to make you sick, just don't know what is next! I guess we will start eating wall paper next!! Yuck!
