Saturday morning thought

This morning, as I was trying to figure out what to make for breakfast (gluten-free pancakes were voted for), another thought passed through my head:
Is it me, or has there been a major shift in the world?  I don't really remember a gluten-free section in the grocery store growing up... or even an organic selection.  I don't remember anyone autistic, or autism being an issue anywhere.  And yes, many argue that it has always been around, but went undiagnosed.  And that may be true, but I'm almost certain not to this extend!!  So, why don't we question why?  What has caused so many people to become gluten intolerant?  Why should the "better selection" be called natural or organic?  Shouldn't that be a given?  Why not call the rest artificial or processed?
The point is... if we question these things, we see them in a different perspective.  Companies don't inform us about how differently they are processing or producing food.  All we see, is that all of a sudden, there are far more diseases around us.  And new isles have been added to the grocery stores.  And that may largely be due to the fact that making money is a higher priority to the food industry than our health....
I know... Quite heavy for a Saturday morning, but it is what it is.  The thought passed through and I had to share.
Happy Saturday.
