It bothers me there are so many that shove their head in the sand and refuse to look at the ingredients, let alone study the know health effects of them. This thread is full of apathy and this disgusting, enabling "we'll, we are going to die anyways" and misleading "people are living longer, so its alright". People need to snap out of this stupor.
If you don't eat organic or prepare you're own fresh meals with fresh ingredients it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to only MODERATELY consume MSG, HFCS, preservatives and hydrogenated oils.
MSG (no limits mind you) is added to trick you're freaking brain into thinking its good decent food. It has been shown that it can damage the brain.
High fructose Corn Syrup enables cancers and diabetes
Hydrogenated oils lower good cholesterol and raise the bad.
I shouldn't even have to type this...you people are silly. We KNOW the effects of eating fast food and packaged crap. There is NO argument to be had.

I ate McD this morning... I hardly ever eat there any more. I don't think my body even digests it any more. It just gives me the craps.

Ascorbic acid is a trade name for Vitamin C.
Food that has to be fortified is not healthy, period.

And since they are heavily processed foods, they are likely unhealthy.
I don't think that Vitamin C belongs in milk because it's not naturally occurring.
I have to totally dismiss this remark. (The one you psoted to NightGypsy). If you look at EVERY post I have shared here (apart from the one the other day that got me a warning as again, I was very angry at Monsanto for what they do to our food) you will see that I am without ego and never see myself higher than anyone else. I am passionate about the subject thats all, and I shared an article that I found interesting and then added my comments, all of which I believe to be true. Yea, some of the statements were pretty generic, but I do think that 99% of processed food is bad for us. Like someone has posted (I have now gone through all the posts), it may be labelled ad 100% beef.... but we feed them growth hormones from birth and feed them articificial grains to boost meat content. What would you say if we started injecting our children with IGF-1? You would be up and arms, as it is 'morally incorrect'. The very idea of injecting your child and modifying them will more than liekly repulse you..... Yet you will let them soak it all up through the foodchain as it is easier to grab a fast food meal than everyone sit round the table and eat a home cooked meal. It is how most humans act now, and its a sad state of affairs, I see it every day. So I am not on my 'pedestal', I am pleading with people to think about their health. Is that such a bad thing?
