Okay, I'm not sure this is really tin foil hat material, as every thing I look into makes it look more than obvious. I can easily see big agriculture and big pharma teaming up to create a society of chronically ill, overweight, sugar addicts that are hooked on sugar until they turn diabetic, then shift their sugar buying dollars towards insulin meds and test strips and such, on which their life depends. Evil - yes, but if the people are dumb enough to buy it, the industry will sell it. Enter big government... The above situation has been noticed by many people I am sure, including government types. And I can easily see most of them turning a blind eye and not saying a word to get that big sugar/pharma check. But ALL of them ? Or is there something more nefarious going on ? Imagine a population of chronically ill, in some cases critically ill, diabetic, and even some that just think they are sick ( See: "Joe versus the Volcano" - Tom Hanks gets a "brain cloud" ). A population that needs, or thinks they need their daily/weekly medication or they will die. A medication that is controlled by government ( Obamacare ). Then you'd have a population that would do pretty much whatever you want them to do whenever you want. Hmmmm.. Is this a plan in motion and at what stage ? Naaawww, nevermind. I just remembered the government is way to incompetent to pull something like that off.. The health insurance industry though.... Oh, and if you think you can just quit sugar... Try it.. You can do it, but it's harder than you think. There are some here on SM that have done it. But it's not easy.
