Conditions at meat processing plants have deteriorated in many parts of the country, with several experts suggesting they played a major role in the recent e-coli outbreaks. It's a harsh lesson for the majority of Canadians have not previously devoted their time to investigating their food sources. But it's a lesson that registered holistic nutritionist Chris Kendall says needs to be learned.
"These unfortunate events really need to motivate us to think about food safety, and our relationship with food in general. One of the best ways to ensure food safety is to be conscious of where your food comes from and exactly how and where it's been produced and processed."
Kendall is the founder of the Raw Advantage (http://www.therawadvantage.com/
) , which provides recipes, workshops, and dietary consultations to individuals and the public. Initially motivated to learn more about food issues after a serious injury early in life, Kendall has dedicated much of his life to learning about the vegan and raw lifestyle and teaching others during his myriad travels around the world. The recent developments in the meat industry have reinforced his desire to help educate people about the importance of diet and overall well-being.
"Going raw isn't necessarily the answer for everyone—and we know that e-coli has been found occasionally in plants and vegetables, though usually resulting from unsafe farming practices—but it is an excellent way to help people improve their knowledge and awareness about what they put into their bodies every day.
