Can anyone explain to me why or even how bacon and eggs became such a popular breakfast food. Personally, I'd rather eat fresh blueberries, apples, a
frozen fruit bar, raisin bread, or other healthy fruit-based foods. I mean after all, when I think about bacon and eggs, all I can think of is clogged
arterties, quadruple by-pass surgery, digestive disorders, and other other wreaks of havoc on the human body. Can anyone explain to me why they would
rather eat bacon and eggs other that they like the taste? I personally believe an answer like that only explains the weak, simplistic state of mind
many Americans express on a regular basis, and a direct reflection our mindset/approach to health or lack thereof. Somebody please, humor me!!!!
Honestly, I am appalled by some of the responses I've been reading here so far. This confirms what I've believed all along. People would rather
choose death over health all for the sake of defending their right to continue to eat fast (heart-attack) food. I bet that's why they call it fast
food. The fast-cooked journey to a fast death.
After slaving through all of the horrific responses I've receiving, I believe I've found the response I've been looking for. I credit sp00n1 for
this. Looks like a man named Edward Bernays is the culprit responsible for mass brainwashing of millions starting with of all people, medical
physicians, which doesn't surprise me. According to Source Watch:
In order to promote sales of bacon, for example, he conducted a survey of physicians and reported their recommendation that people eat hearty
breakfasts. He sent the results of the survey to 5,000 physicians, along with publicity touting bacon and eggs as a hearty breakfast.
Great job sp00n1. This is precisely what I was looking for--The mastermind responsible for ruining the American Breakfast. Edward Bernays is the
culprit. How low of him to manipulate innocent, naive, yet incompetent physicians who probably had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
This explains it all. Looks like billions and billions really have been served. Thanks sp00n1
