My name is Jill and I am passionate about REAL food! Natural Disaster is my attempt to decipher the science and marketing behind what we eat.

A few years ago I had an epiphany moment while watching a clip of a documentary called How to Get Fat Without Trying. I realized how much goes on behind the scenes in the food industry: lobbying; lack of testing; changing products to encourage people to eat more. The onus is on regular folks to “make healthy choices”, but I’m starting to believe it’s actually impossible to do so.

This blog chronicles my quest to discover what’s actually in our food.

I’m a professional communicator with a background in nutrition. I live in a medium-sized city in Ontario, Canada.
