My brother, Ray, told me about this article by Katie Couric on junk food. Watch the video at this site. We are being hijacked into buying junk food. This article says:
It’s a quote from Dr. David Kessler, who was the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from 1990 to 1997, where he worked extensively on enforcing tobacco regulations. But now he’s turned his attention on the next great American health crisis — how and what we eat. It’s the subject of the eye-opening new film “Fed Up” from executive producers Katie Couric (Yahoo’s global news anchor) and Laurie David (“An Inconvenient Truth”)
We can’t watch TV, listen to the radio, walk down the street or drive without marketing hijacking our brains. The two biggest hijackers are drugs and food. Yes we need to eat food but most is junk food and processed foods that have more chemicals in them than nutrients. This hijacking has caused the biggest epidemic of illness in our nations history. We are loosing and will continue to lose more Americans to drug reactions and improper diet than all the wars combined. Why? Greed! Drugs and the food industry are big business.
