When we first walked around this earth, there was no pop tarts, Doritos, candy bars, Frosted Flakes, and a whole mess of other endless choices of sugar/ sodium chemical "spiced" processed foods. Now in the present day of our lives we are succumbed to rely on these items to live.
Almost makes you wonder what humanity have done for the last few thousand years, before Kraft came to give us nurishment. The fact of the matter is, most of us know these foods are less than beneficial, although every year it becomes more imbedded into the way of life as it comes to nutrition. Convience, is the main driving force in terms of why we rely so heavily on these products to survive, as major Food Corporations will sit in front of Nutritionist, Critics, and Lobbyist. Using the defense of the only way we can keep a over populated world from starving to death,is to rely on there products. Painting a picture of fear, which is a hard debate to counter. All the while farmers are paid to not plant food (to drive pricing), and Monsanto seeds are used more and more, to keep the rules of the game unbalanced. All the while Mega Markets get these products for pennies on the dollar, Market them as daily BOGO deals, drawing in consumers to fill there carts with these "deals". While also grabbing an organic coconut lotion from aisle 4, finishing up in the electronic section buying a new smartphone assessary with all the savings from our food purchases before checking out, with their week of nourishments. Repeating this circle of life over and over. Then the question is always asked: "Why can I never seem to get control of my weight?"
