The 'Terrible 10': The Worst Aspects Of America's Food Scene

Posted: 10/14/11 01:13 PM ET


The first annual Food Day is October 24; it aims to bring Americans from all walks of life together to "push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way," according to the Food Day website. In anticipation of the day, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has released its "Terrible Ten," a list of the 10 worst aspects of American's food scene. Although the list is not necessarily a cohesive one -- there's no obvious connection between lobbyists and vending machines -- it does highlight some of the biggest threats to a healthy food system.

Check out the "Terrible Ten" slideshow below.
