Please, take me to school.
I know this wasn't intended for me, but I wanted to give my opinion on this too. First; have you ever eaten home-canned food?
Home-canned is FAR better, more nutritious and healthier. Also, because of the usual glass containers that they're stored in, in the long run would
probably taste better than some vegetables sitting in metal..
But of course there are always pros and cons with everything.
Canning also takes A LOT of work! (And time, and vegetables, etc) It would actually end up costing MORE to can your own food.
Personally, I'm not a huge fan of canned goods, but I'm stocking up on canned foods instead of doing my own. I grew up with my grandparents canning
every summer and I just can't put myself through that right now..
Canned goods + Multi-vitamins would probably suffice for most anyone.
