For those who'd like to know more, there's a doc on YouTUBE, "The Men Who Made Us Fat" that gives some insight into the companies who produce our food: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6nGlLUBkOQ .

I think some processed foods are better than others and they are getting easier to find. I limit the processed foods I buy to the organic version and I always read the labels. We are all too busy these days and have way too much going on to be able to prepare fresh foods everyday, all day. But, if you try to eat whole foods a lot more often, it's definitely doable, even if you're in a hurry.

If we had true HEALTH care in this country, nutrition would be a top priority, from the FDA to medical schools and hospitals, and especially school food programs... instead we have illness care, that no matter what a bad diet will lead to, there will be a pill to take to "control symptoms", much to the delight of the pharmaceutical companies... Yes it is the consumer's responsibility to educate themselves, but there is so much conflicting information out there it is overwhelming...

There's nothing wrong with an occasional Sports Bucket. Not every day, but sometimes bit of fried chicken skin sooths the soul the way a homecooked meal cannot. Gravy, potato, bread rolls, chicken. Fried. Southern style. Buck's in perfect health, and he hardly even gets any exercise. And he sure as heck don't eat fresh greens.

Enjoy your MSG. Nice to consume a brain altering chemical. Have you tried LSD also?

I know a guy who once used LSD. He didn't used to believe about Nibiru, but now he does. More people should eat less soy sauce, but it's sooo gooood!

So too much fat, salt and sugar will kill you and there is too much in every form of processed food.  And big Ag and big food has been lying to you for years about it, and our lovely Congress passed laws to protect them in case you find out. 

I am not quite sure why this is news to anyone?

What a succinct, balanced and tremendously informative article. This is the true value of news.

Problem is the food industry has become so greedy that they're willing to slowly poison their customers if it will put a few more cents in their bank accounts. Processed food is never as good as fresh food, but I think the processed stuff before the '80s wasn't THAT bad for you is the stuff nowadays.

And who is behind the Food Industry??

When Michelle Obama proposed healthier alternatives to pathetic lunches served in schools, many Americans were in uproar because they are under the fallacy that the government wants to control what they eat. Well guess what smarties? If you don't eat right and fall sick guess who you turn to for aid? The government and its people! A large number of Americans over eat because the options are endless and the food sizes are enormous (super size, extra this or that, mega, etc). When will it stop? The earlier we ban some of these sickening things packaged as food/beverages, the better for us as a nation. Most American cities have too many eateries but not enough parks, too many highways but not enough side walks, too many cars but not enough bikers/walkers, too many "high end" gym/spa but not enough affordable ones, too many companies but not enough farms/farmers markets... my fellow Americans, companies will continue to feed you junk till you stand up for what you believe in. Don't wait for tomorrow to do something, because tomorrow might never come.

I eat an apple for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and try to eat sparingly at dinner. I'm amazed at how little we actually need to eat, even if I run or use the elliptical for 45 min 5-days per week. I actually have less of an appetite when I exercise regularly.

That said, god it's easy to overeat in America, sigh...

We do not understand why Kraft Foods have food dies or colorings in their salad dressings. That cannot be healthy for us to eat.

Most people just need to get to the point where processed foods taste like garbage or cardboard, and sugar-laden foods make them gag.
