We have all lived with foods that could kill us. Transfats, margerine, HFSC, Red Dye #5. It should not be a problem to look at the label to see what we are ingesting. To me it is all about moderation if I want to wake up one day and spend $33.00 on an antipasti then so be it. I will probably do it once in my life. I have a Big Mac once a year and once in a long while I will listen to Rap music. How can you discuss it if you do not know it? As it turns out I prefer not to know it but at least I have some basis of reference. I love food. You just have to know the difference between desire and compulsion.
One more thing; We do most of our shopping at Whole Foods.
