At the core of life, there isn’t much that rivals food in terms of importance. Its vitality makes it a scarcity, even for the most glutinous. That being said, it inherently becomes a commodity. And so spirals all of the world’s issues, which, I argue, trace back to food. To even grow food, land is needed, whether it be for farming or for a factory. Wars have been waged over such land. Lives have been lost, mercilessly. And not just human lives. Media exposure of the food industry, particularly animal products and byproducts, reveal cruelty beyond imagination, and almost all of it unnecessary. Even produce, pumped with GMO’s and doused in pesticides, has become a subject of controversy. So we petition and we picket and we make individual choices to separate ourselves from the dangers of food production, if not for the good of the environment at least for our own health. But if your shelves are stocked with the most whole and healthy goods, have you completely done your part? Was the fight meaningful if right in your kitchen, your dog eats commercial chow?
The “bad stuff” that you protect your body from, the controversial practices that disgust you, and the corporations you refuse to support are all in Fido’s bowl. In fact, the pet food you’re likely buying is even worse, because a lot of the “ingredients” in it are the scraps that manufactures can’t get away with putting in human food. The research behind it is only a few decades old, and the support even more recent, but nutritionists and doctors – not just veterinarians – are insisting that we can – and should – provide our pets with the same nutrients we consume as humans. Our animals can live longer, healthier lives with a natural diet. No preservatives or chemicals, no bacteria or animal bones. Through careful, slow processing, pet food companies are taking the same ingredients we consume in our diets and breaking them down into digestible pieces for the ones we love most. Introducing natural pet food into your home is one step closer to attaining a completely sustainable, holistic lifestyle, and you can make the move right now by purchasing this wonderful product on Lux & Eco.
