I just saw a segment on a morning news program where a certain processed cheese appears endorsed by a kid’s diet website. It’s not so much endorsed as the cheese company sponsors the kid’s website so they get to put that on their package. The result is that the processed cheesed looks healthy for kids. I’m sure if you go on their website they will tell you how healthy it is.
This is just another confusion factor in what is a really healthy diet. If we lived in a pure society where everyone was only concerned about the other person, then no one would knowingly make food that is unhealthy. Again, there is that caveat, knowingly. We often say, if it’s unhealthy why do they keep making it? We can look at the cigarette industry for that answer.
Just because it’s on a grocery shelf, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Businesses are in business to make money. And they will use the mantra that there is no proof our food is not healthy. I don’t think there is proof that someone died because they ate a Twinkie every day. So business is not going to help you decide if something is healthy to eat or not.
