Hi, again, TCF.
Edible (healthfulness in regards to sickness or poison) is not the same as nutritious. Paper is edible, but not nutritious. Highly processed food
lacks nutrition. That is why it is common to manufacturer and include synthetic nutritional content (which the body does not absorb equally as well
as unprocessed food!) in the ingredient lists of highly processed/deficient food products. More so, color, flavor, and aroma must also be synthesized
and added to processed foods in order to appeal to the natural inclination of our bodies. And I should say that those who desire money are masters at
dangling such tempting bait. False taste, false appearance, false odor, false nutrition, false cost.
Whether it is TV, the internet, processed foods, poor education, our culture is being swallowed up by foolishness. And I am certainly an advocate of
one's freedom to be foolish, but I do not advocate that anyone actually acts foolishly. Nevertheless, avoiding foolishness requires wisdom and
wisdom requires diligence, humility, etc., so I do not expect that the world will be too different than it ever has been, except when/if something
Regarding the need to raise more cows, well, that is simply a non-sequitur. Processing the same foods differently will clearly reduce the profits of
many corporations, but the same amount of food should be able to be achieved if some minor consideration is applied. More so, if stock is made with
the same materials and combined with a healthy bulk food item like potatoes, bean, rice, etc., it may actually reduce the overall intake of meat while
increasing the overall nutritional content being offered to the public.
And, again, if someone wants to buy highly processed meat, they should be able to do so at a price that reflects the deceptions that were orchestrated
in order to produce such a thing.
