you talk like you are better than others. that is why you talk to yourself. no one responds.

the reason why you hate gays is, gays can have what they want. because of your Bible, your oral needs is not fulfilled. so you end up envying gays and become hateful.

Many Americans give absolutely no thought to the MAN-MADE FAT CONTENT of what they eat. All many of them care about it HOW T TASTES. And Satan likes that.

Jack LaLanne once said - "If it tastes good , it's no good!"

I do understand what yer trying to express Doc(I think...), eating more "natural" foods is obviously healthier for ones being. You can't forget the genetic factor though. Some are just predisposed to be physically "inferior" - for lack of better term. Some families have a history of heart disease, cancer, obesity , ect. Still, watching ones health better could possibly offset some further health issues. Why one may hear of or know someone who was a "health nut" dying from
a heath related issue way too young, and someone who lived into their nineties yet smoked since a teen with no regard to good nutrition.

There must be a demand. It's not up to the retailers to 'monitor' the public's health - or anyone - for that matter. Individual responsibility, anyone?

Why did that "work" at one time?....

The food manufacturers learned from the tobacco companies. If you make your product more addicting, your customers buy more product.
Though I love pears and honey, quite tasty I might add, I still know there's a 'limit' as to how much I should consume. I may >buy< many, but I don't eat them all at once.
People Do have the freedom to make purchases, and marketing plays a role also in getting consumers to do so.

Things like high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners like aspartame are addictive. Testing on animals showed them that we'd buy more of their garbage if they included ingredients like those.
I'd just wish for once when one gets on the "soap box" and makes sweeping claims they'd provide some peer reviewed research to back them up. That said, I have read reports that pan both ingredients but are split on the addictive nature.Some sight - "...are addictive..." another - " may be addictive..." . Sounds like the jury is still out, and one will use whichever fits their agenda. However, I personally agree any artificial ingredient or additive should be avoided whenever possible, more natural the better.

Ah, there's the rub - litigation. No offence, just much always seems to come down to the shekels. A little difference here though, food one needs, cigs one doesn't - and they're also established to be addictive(jury still out on the food ingredients). In the case of cigs, just an aside , if SO bad for public health- they should be illegal. Never happen though, taxes flow when cigs 'glow'- if you get my drift. And with pot mainstreaming....another story...

Never wrote it was a disease, your statement pontification. But do agree with that portion , obesity , like a lot of things attributed to being a "disease" , isn't something you can "catch". Genetics aside,it is developed - one forkful at a time. I cannot take individual responsibility from the equation, sorry, been around long and witnessed much.

Would like to thank you for the opportunity of meaningful "conversation" - rare around these parts, and I believe we could agree that "whole foods" , free of artificial additives and in most natural state , are much better for ones overall health :)

My dear Senacus, look on the labels of many of the products you buy, like toothpaste, shampoo, hair spray etc etc etc, and if you see the ingredient 'SODIUM LAUREL SULAFTE'....just know that the government is allowing companies to put an ingredient in your consumer goods that is DESTROYING YOUR HEALTH, Buy from all-natural health food stores as much as possible.
