Today’s processed foods industry is more powerful than the tobacco industry was in the 1950’s and ’60’s. Not everyone smokes, but everyone eats. The other magnifying feature in terms of social impact, is that unlike tobacco, processed foods are being pumped into our children from birth. The long-term health of next generations is being insidiously compromised before they even get a chance to be young and strong. It is a tragedy being perpetrated both through the inadvertent neglect of parents and caregivers as well as the media-spinning power of big food conglomerates and the captured politicians that assist them. Healthy eating is one of those rare foundational choices where individuals either make a conscious decision to be part of the solution or they are part of the problem.
