Is fast food a slow death in disguise?

It is according to one of the lyrics in the song ‘Food Fight’ by Earth Amplified. Another lyric is “who would have known you can die from a diet”.

A bit like how Ron Finley’s TED talk said that “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys,” this song talks of how “poor diets kill more brothers than pistols.”

The songs features a quote from Vandana Shiva:

Once they have established the norm, that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it; it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world.”

The opening verse then talks of the war going on inside that no man is safe from “DDTs, PCBs, every corner in the hood got a KFC or McD’s. It’s crack speed like RED Bull-ish they pulpit – so caffeine, Kit Kat like a click-clack holes in your genes, cuz everything at market ain’t all what it seems.”

“Ain’t nothing but a G thing – GMO, MSG, genocide of street gangs.”

This song is an example of Edutainment at it’s best.
