Radio Ep. 10 - Food in Schools & Lessons in Nutrition

modern schools are considered a cornerstone of society necessary for the basic education of children in the important things in life. When one chooses not to participate in this system any longer they are viewed and treated as black sheep who've turned their back on humanity and progress altogether.

This is a misconception and the result of propaganda peddled by the universities and their recruiting departments. One must not forget that schools and universities are businesses that take in huge sums of profit by overcharging for their services.

This can be their students in universities or the local community in public schools. The average expense is over 10,000 per year per student enrolled in any type of schoo, being paid by the citizens.

The subsidization of this system allows it to get away with things that traditional businesses are not able to .

The subject of today's conversation is nutrition, and what do the schools teach us to eat. This show will be retitled are school lunches the best society can provide? And in today's show I discuss some of the things that are wrong with what students are fed in cafeterias and more generally what they are taught is safe and healthy to eat.

Here is a short excerpt from an article on about the school lunch programs and the many ways they fall short of providing the best in the form of nutrition or nutritional education.

You see the sad part is most of us have simply given too much trust to these institutions instead of relying on our own abilities and interests to drive the learning and growth process in our lives.

By being led to believe trust in the experts is all that is needed for one to prosper , we are left open to all kinds of attacks and more simply mistakes and being taken advantage of by those who are conscious.

For instance, there is a huge notion that schools are responsible for most children learning to read and write and after all we remember spending all that time and all those hours practicing in kindergarten right?

Well it seems these have no true effect and actually learning to read takes place elsewhere. The reason for this is quite simple and if you look at the U.S. Bureau of education's own statistics, they tell you that only 19% of high school graduates don't know how to read, while only 14% of the general population doesn't know how to read. This lets you know that you dace a 5% greater risk of not learning to read or write by graduating high school.
