Kraft foods:
Contaminated with genetically modified organisms and pesticides:

"Earlier this year, a National Institutes of Health study fund that a different pesticide, trichlorfon, commonly used on golf courses, was associated with an 85% increase in risk of diabetes for even infrequent users, and a 250% increase in risk for workers who had applied it more than 10 times. The same pesticide has been used to kill cockroaches, crickets, bedbugs, fleas, flies and ticks, but its main current use is on turf, such as at golf courses.

It was the most extreme connection researchers found between pesticide applicators and diabetes, but not the only one. Use of any of the pesticides studied for more than 100 days in a lifetime increased diabetes risk 17%."

You wouldn't put paraffin based oil in a ferrari would you? Then why go out and eat
factory "food" which is all the same chemical laden processed, frozen, boxed, trucked, bar coded, microwaved, deep fried junk that is sold at
Round Table, Chilis, Denny's, Olive Garden, CoCo's, Chevy's, Burger King, McDonald's , Cheesecake Factory, Carl's Jr, Wendy's etc., often from the very same warehouse and drop shipped on shrink-wrapped pallets off the same trucks that make their rounds from mall to mall. J.R. Simplot potatoes and coke syrup and Iowa Beef Packers "meat" consisting of ground up cattle muscle, tumors, pus, rodents etc, are the same at every fast food terminal countrywide.
The only difference is the TV commercials, the menus and the corporate branded image.
Learn where your local farmer's market is folks. Learn to cook simple nutritious food.
Eat meat like a condiment if at all. Go organic. Grow some of your own. You'll live longer and be healthier and wealthier and look better.
