Food, food insecurity
Fundamentally, I think, most of the efforts directed at 'improving' the eating habits of poor people are born out of nothing but hatred and revulsion. We know (and they know that we know) that we should be eating more home cooked meals, we should be eating more (highly perishable!) fresh vegetables, that we should be eating more foods that cost more and are far more time-consuming to prepare. They are aware of our financial poverty as well as our time poverty. And yet, so few efforts are focused on actually *enabling* people to eat differently. I would certainly eat better if I had more time and money wasn't as tight. Most people would. The best way to guarantee people eat better is to raise wages, reduce the number of hours they need to work, or give them money they can put towards food. But there's no money for that. There's only money for billboards.
In just six months I have seen two people become so sick from ""intermittent fasting" that they lost their jobs or quit. Both people had jobs they were well liked at and paid well, but they were so sick they couldn't even think clearly anymore. Fuck the diet-pushers and everyone who thinks this is okay.

Granted they're yearling Arabians I think,
One thing that I always think about in the case of a shift in social organization: how will needs for medication be handled? Our current system of creating and distributing it is globalized, complex and bureaucratic. How could we continue to care for people who depend on medicine in any system different than this one?
Disordered eating + politics, leftists read this
For real though, food is the one place where leftists and fash agree. No matter how anarchist you are, you can't imagine just eating a piece of cake without thinking about how 'bad' you're being for eating it. You say you care about people with eating disorders, but you're talking in PUBLIC about how we're all dying from not eating clean or natural or whatever that bullshit is.
What I am saying is, you probably have more in common than you are willing to admit with the conservatives who are always on about how soy turns you into a girl. Acknowledge this and start to work through it.
No offense but like. Sugar only became a "*toxin"" when white people got it. Sugar cane has been cultivated since before 1000 BC and people were fine, and intensely sweet, fructose-rich fruits were foods our species literally coevolved with. Do your sugar detox if you must, but please, don't tell me about it.
