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 processed items to live, we as a human race by default have begun to see a rise in body fat. Along with a majority of people suffering from diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and a sleuth of other issues. Food is now more poison then a medicine.
Almost makes you wonder..How did all of humanity thrive, for the last few thousand years? Before Kraft foods came along in 1923, to be given the task of supplying the majority of mankind nourishment. 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 justifiable defense, that the only way we can keep a over populated world from starving to death, due to lack of farmland. Is to rely on the products mass produced not on nutrient rich soil, but from factories. 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?"
