False advertising comes too naturally for the food industry

This is kind of a sidebar discussion, but somewhat relevant. I came across this video thanks to Upworthy and thought it was a) hilarious and b) terrifying. In a previous post, I wrote about how I’ve subscribed to a clean(er) way of life when it comes to food choices. I say clean(er) because I can’t always eat organic since, well, this girl is on a budget and I like to live a little every now and then. However, it is important to be conscious of what you’re putting in your body & READ THE INGREDIENTS forchristsake!

This would be great if it wasn’t so true.

The video reminds us of the loopholes food marketers get away with and lead the masses to believe they’re eating healthy, when in fact, the food is just a food-like product. It makes me wonder if these marketers and advertisers ever face a moral/ethical dillema or is it really just all about the money? Clearly…and sadly…it’s probably about that (gmo)-dough!

Be careful & educate yourself, guys! Netflix has a lot of food docs that I highly suggest.

New Internet Explorer ad is Nailing it

If there’s one thing I love it is the 90s. So many memories and fun times were had and Microsoft did a fantastic job telling it like it is. Boy do I miss those days. The commercial is a true reminder of how much the digital age has evolved and taken over every facet of our lives. The ad came out today and it already almost has 50 million views.

That’s a-whole-lotta nostalgia!

 

 

Personally, I’m a Chrome or Safari user, depending on the device I’m on. Anytime I open IE I panic and am completely turned off. I don’t know what it is, but—blech. HowEVER, to my surprise, Internet Explorer is once again Nailing It!

So what do you guys think? Do you use IE? If not what browser do you use and would you make the switch? I don’t know. I’m definitely a #childofthe90s but for me…
