Fast Food, Fat Profits & My Comments

This video is so interesting and enlightening. But, we could feel hopeless after watching it.

Could there be logical reasons why cancer and diabetes are escalating? Given our food environment in America, we can come up with some good reasons why we are a nation filled with unhealthy people.

I have never seen what a bottle of 'Chubby' soda looks like, but in the video, the bottle is quite small. But the amount of sugar in a bottle of Chubby is equal to the sugar in 7 doughnuts. Chubby is marketed for children.

"It's all about money" says one of the people in the video. How right he is! "Who is profiting from this current situation? Certainly not the children." announces one person.

Cheap food is heavily subsidized. Wow. A nice sized hamburger is cheaper than an apple. Sad. How we devour these things without even thinking about the consequences.

The sad part is, the public isn't really even aware of this. Those who are skilled at marketing are doing a good job and making a lot of money using the techniques of the 'lust of the flesh' when it comes to food and eating habits.

Watch the video. It is about 23 minutes. You will never be the same.
