Genetically Engineered Food

This was a letter I wrote after participating in a movement to stop food from being genetically altered. It’s actually a bigger problem than you would imagine. Food processors are putting things in our food that we don’t know about. The pictures I didn’t put in the letter obviously. Just having a little bit of fun.

Dear (Not putting their name)

I must admit that I didn’t fully know what was being put into our food until I researched it for myself. Many Americans have no idea what is being put into our food and read the Nutritional Ingredient section with little to no knowledge of what all of that even means. Most people today get health tips from daytime television or know someone who can actually translate what these words mean.

Everyone knows cigarettes are bad for us, but people stupidly do it anyway. Fast food is processed food with all types of chemicals included that mostly harm the body instead of giving us the nutrients in order for a healthy meal.

So in turn we go to our local food stores and take solace in the idea that what we buy on the shelves isn’t going to harm us. Little do we know that the tiny print and unpronounceable words on the boxes hold a darker secret to them.

The idea that most of these ingredients aren’t even tested is a scary thought to conceive and we don’t know the long term effects until it is sadly too late. Top foods like corn, soy, potatoes, rice, and even some dairy products have these genetically engineered ingredients and we don’t even know about. Some products aren’t even properly labeled so that people who do research what they eat are literally eating blind.

Americans are sadly blind to this realization, but you can help unveil the truth and even save a few lives in the long term. If you can help support A1359/S91, this would help label genetically engineered foods sold in New Jersey so the public could fully know what they are consuming.

I do hope my words do not fall upon deaf ears and that you can help support the cause that Food & Water Watch has started.

Sincerely,

Joe Reyes

Not Toned

This is going to sound really weird, but it’s something that I don’t understand. I don’t understand why wrestlers/actors, who primarily aren’t wearing a shirt don’t look good. In a world where we have trainers and nutritionists and gyms popping up everywhere, why don’t these guys at least tone up?

Has the Miz ever heard of a sit-up?  I just don’t understand how if you don’t look good without your shirt on, then why have it off. A lot of these wrestlers today look like lazy slobs. Their guts are hanging out over their belts. It doesn’t make any damn sense to me.

This is a picture of me without a shirt. If I was going to go on national television without a shirt then I’d hit the gym a lot more. At best I would just try and get more defined. That could be easily accomplished with a few squat thrust and some more bench presses.

Even on one of my favorite show Spartacus the actors don’t look really bulked up. Characters like this just confuse me. You’re an actor. A very rich actor, who has access to gyms and trainers. Why then wouldn’t you want to looked toned for the part. You’re playing a gladiator! At least try and look the part.
