Food Food All around and not a bite to eat

I try fairly hard to eat pretty decent, and like everyone I fall off the wagon from time to time.
Today I set out off the wagon and ended up trying to climb back on, in half an hour of wandering around the IGA in whitehall all I saw was food which honestly is barely fit for human consumption, and in the long run really is not.
I had the cheese isle where nearly everything they have was processed and therefore not healthy, I settled on a small 8oz block of cheese which was on sale.
The Meat isle had no Organic presliced meat, so rather than buy hormon, raised turkey and chicken injected with antibiotics I decided to opt out of meat in that respect, and finally settled on some Chicken Pattys all natural from Tyson, probably not all that natural other than being raised but nothing else so it is what I settled upon.
For bread all I could think about was even the best most healthy bread before me, was so infused with preservatives it would not mold for at least a couple of weeks, do I really want that inside me? no
I settled for whole grain crisp crackers, again, not that great but less bread and they are filling so the desire to continually much is not there.
I browsed the fruit isle but with no Organic fruit all I could see was pesticide laced fruits grown from oil based fertilizer with only half the nutritinal value of fruit raised in the 50s and 60s.
I was of course reminded of the story "water water all around and not a drop to drink" and my mind drifted to other countries where a healthy lifestyle is promoted, not shunned.
Why are we not promoting healthy living more? why are people who eat well often looked upon as strange?
Shouldnt those eating unfit fuel for their bodies be looked upon as strange? After all, you would not fill your car up with bad gas, so why your body?

The myth of Oil

Make no mistake about it Oil is hands down one of the best resources we can use to gain power out of, in other words it really takes very little energy in order to get max energy from it, so with that, I love oil.
It is used in absolutely everything in our mainstream life, to the best known Gas, Diesel and of course oil. Without oil and hte ability to make synthetic rubber the poor Rubber trees never could have kept up, so from that alone it was a huge enviromental mircale. It is also used in clothing (nylon for instance) fireproofing, rubber, plastics and Pesticides. You really cannot touch barely anything in your housee without something being made from oil in some way shape or form.
But with that said it has one big problem it is finite and we will and are running out.
BAM up in your seat you get "Oh that is bs the oil boom is going huge in the Dakotas right now and eastern Montana.
Your right, they are but that boom has already came and went, drained dry we are now using Fracking to get oil from the ground. In other words we force Cracks in the earths crust so as to push out hidden oil, take this as the equivilent of squeezing a sponge, in other words, put a fork in her, that goose is cooked.
The problems from Fracking are now coming to light despite millions upon millions to keep the problems hidden.
The first is the polution of water wells, quit simply wells in fracking areas are now completely undrinkable.
Second we have earthquakes, people anytime you crack something what happens? it spreads, it may not be noticeable today, tomorrow or even in 100 years, but mark my words, those crack will spread and hell will come.
Once oil caverns are drilled water fills in those caverns, where does that water come from? Ask texas where lakes are drying up, thats right, water has to come from somewhere so it is seeping into those chasms forever polluted.
So I ask you how much is to much? We have to slow down, not only on the consumer front, but on the government front as well, I keep saying this, and nobody is listening, this is the only rock we have, once its gone, where will your childrens children go?
