I am witness this morning to a daily triumph of cultural indoctrination. Products with a list of untested chemical ingredients as long as your arm, not to mention sweeteners that cause massive insulin production and inflammation, are delivered to hospitals by the truckload. Why are the doctors and nurses not picketing the loading docks?
A truckload of Coke products is dropped off at Mt. Sinai’s Fifth Avenue entrance. Meanwhile, Pepsi delivers their diabetes/heart/cancer treatments to Mt. Sinai’s receiving department around the corner.
“Is there a problem?” said some manager guy seeing me take the photo.
“Nah, nothing,” I say. “Just it’s kinda crazy to give soda to sick people.” And I rush off, stuffing my camera in my bag.
