The American people are being deliberately starved to death on fast foods...
This doesn’t seem to make any sense. I already know what you are thinking. “How can you starve to death if you’re eating fast food? People who
eat fast food aren’t starving, they’re fat!”
And this is exactly what we have been trained to think. The sad truth is that fat Americans are quite literally starving to death. They eat plenty of
food, but are provided no nutritional value.
A person is hungry, so they stop at a fast-food place on their way to work. An hour later they are hungry again, and wondering to themselves with
guilt, “Why am I already hungry again?” It is because they satisfied their stomach, but not the rest of their body. Now their body is calling for
more food, to satisfy the need for proper nutrients. The sort of nutrients that provide energy, and stave of all sorts of sickness and disease. If
they had a nutritious breakfast, they would not be hungry now. Instead they opted for the cheesy-sausage biscuit that shot right through them like
greased lightning. Now to satisfy their hunger once again, they raid the box of donuts in the break room. Again, no nutritional value, but it
satisfies the stomach for a while once more. At this point, the person has probably already exceeded their proper caloric intake for the day, without
even gaining any proper nutritional sustenance that the body actually requires. The person has been eating for nothing, other than to put down the
creeping feeling of starvation.
Now repeat this cycle throughout the day, everyday. The person will continue to gain weight due to calories, but at the same time, the body is
provided none of the essential nutrients to keep one healthy and active. Hence, this fat person is literally starving to death in a viscous cycle. So
regardless of personal choices, I believe I have shown that fat people are literally starving to death, while eating more and more to silence the
alarms of starvation the body is sending to the brain.
Now I will move to the deliberate campaign to ensnare Americans in this cruel trap.
The motivation here is two-fold. First comes the profits, as to be expected in any good Capitalist society. Food with little or no nutritional value
is cheap and easy to produce, yet can be sold for a substantial profit. The profit margin is increased through genetic modifications to the food that
increases mass, while further depleting nutrients. Now the profit margin is further increased by selling this “food” in massive quantities. Not
only at fast-food restaurants, but in the supermarkets as well. Snack foods and frozen dinners obviously, but now even the fruits and vegetables have
been modified so that nutrition is lost in favor of quantity. Twenty years ago, all food was organic. Now if you want food that has any real
nutritional value, you have to pay twice as much as what the standard product is selling for.
Now we run into the more sinister part of the conspiracy. The scary truth is that our infrastructure can no longer provide food to the people. This is
the second motivation for increasing quantity at the cost of nutrition. “Let them eat cake!” To keep the people from realizing that the
infrastructure can no longer sustain the people with the foods that maintain the proper nutritional health, these “food-like” products are shoved
in our faces to fatten up the population. After all, how could anyone possibly claim that fat people are starving to death? Moreover, they can clearly
claim that food is being provided to the people, when in reality what we are eating is not food at all but artificial sustenance. Our tummies are
full, so no one bother to question what is actually happening.
So let’s move on to personal choice then.
Again, the sad truth is most people don’t even realize that what they are eating is not actually food. Sure they know that fast-food isn’t really
good for you, but at least it’s something to eat. So unless people are actually aware of what is happening here, how can they be expected to make
the right choice? Then add on to that the ferocious campaigns of consumerism. Americans are relentlessly subjected to the most unscrupulous methods of
psychological battery to get them to buy and consume. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the advertisements that tell us what to eat. Even when
you think you are eating food that is good for you now, you are still slowly starving to death with each bite. The meats, the vegetables, it’s all
being stripped of its nutritional value while the campaign mounts to shift everyone over to a diet of pre-packaged meals.
And this campaign goes well beyond advertising. The chemicals that are used to increase the size of the food you eat, goes into you as well. This
means that these chemicals will actually induce hunger when you digest them.
The destruction of the family unit and the rapid deterioration of our economy has played a key role in the dramatic shift in the eating habits of
Americans. No one sits around a dinner table in the evening anymore. Why? Because no one has the time to cook a proper meal, or to go shopping for all
the ingredients. You have two parents working 60 hours a week each, and telling the babysitter that there are Hot Pockets in the freezer.
Then you have the cost of food itself. There are many people who simply can no longer afford to eat real food. It is cheaper to eat foods that have
little or no nutritional value.
double cheese burger (135g each) x 2 = $2
chili = $1.19
TOTAL = $3.19
Stop & Shop Supermarket
half-pound bologna = $1.40
quarter-pound american cheese = 1.38
one can soup = $1
TOTAL = $3.78
Notice that the grocery list does not even include the bread or condiments. So where does the poor person take their five-spot when they get hungry?
Also note that bologna sandwhich is probably just as bad for you as the Wendy’s cheeseburger.
I will leave it at this for now, and argue on a point by point basis against the barrage I expect to be pelted with here.
