    Look at the list of ingredients on your average store bought bread, cereal, mac and cheese etc. they have so many ingredients that aren't actually "food".
    Oh yeah, sorry I posted that without reading the entire article. Yeah man, I agree. Thanks for posting this.

    Personally I eat mostly fresh fruits/vegetables/meats/grains and cook at home. It takes a bit more work, but it's actually cheaper (contrary to popular belief).

    Agreed with above posters too. This should be taught in schools. Eat less processed foods.

    I'll give you a great example..

    An American Coke's first ingredient is High Fructose Corn Syrup.

    A Mexican Coke? Sugar..

    Part of this is because your parent are supposed to teach you those things.

    Most parents arent experts on the civil war. However, people who have children should know a thing or two about nutrition and personal finance.

    Note I said SHOULD. Of course, many dont.


    The other thing is, nutrition is a constantly evolving subject. We were taught by government funded research to eat mostly breads and cereals, the base of the food pyramid. Oops.

    On the flip you will never get sick and bed ridden by the parasites/bacterium in our food, or water, or air

    Travelers won't ever need to take 'shots' before coming to America, like you do going to Asia/South America

    Indeed our food last long and is jacked on roids, we like flavoring as well (salt/butter). But this comes accompanied with the highest grade food and health regulations that no other country competes with.

    Few reports of salmonella? FDA quarantines the entire US until source is located

    Rats shitting all over international produce? Pulling fish out of rivers that been swimming in toxic levels of mercury? They'll put it uncooked on your plate. Don't happen in US, business get shut down quick.

    That's why here you never see rice served often, it's a high risk food

    Those guidelines were written and bought out by private sector sugar and cheap food manufacturer conglomerates.

    I'll never forget when I visited Mexico when I was a kid and saw poor families eating just beans with corn tortilla for dinner every single day, or dads waking up every morning riding their horse 2 miles and crossing a river just to milk their cows so they can have milk during the day. It made me appreciate what I have here in the states, I can leave my house and come back with come milk in 2-3 minutes.

    What an idiotic statement.....so because we're not some 3rd world country torn apart by war, corruption, or crime we shouldn't try to fight the problems we DO have?
