processed food are harder to break down and effect our body negatively compared to non-processed food. Today’s market is saturated with prepaged and processed foods. These foods on the whole are higher in fat and sugar content. This type of eating habit, while may be ok for active kids is not good for adults who are continuing the same eating habits they had as youths with the processed food.
I do want to clarify though that I was not blaming trans fat oils or HFCS as the cause of obesity. I was merely pointing out that since obesity has been identified an epidemic by the US government, there is money available to help get rid of the "demons." IMO, I would like that money to be used to cause public awareness instead of creating laws regarding the banning of already approved foods.
