Pseudo-healthy processed foods: margarine / added fiber breakfast cereals / low fat yoghurts, skimmed milk. They all require technology to make them, and promote industry, jobs etc. They all get amazing press in our media. Its been going on for 50 odd years now. Its an entire economy.
Have we gone temporarily mad? Or is there some actual conspiracy to fool the populace into being malnourished, slightly desperate consumers, who will continue to pay top dollar for whatever new health 'solution' that comes out of a factory?
People do tend to like shortcuts for anything. So if a product is marketed as a shortcut for health, people will pay for it, especially if its in a fancy box. Everyone likes a fancy box. Is that all there is to it, or is there something more sinister going on?
These are my thoughts, people.
