What’s disappointing is how little government interferes with these practices of loading processed foods with sugar, salt, and oil. The food industry can do just about anything it wants to do, and you don’t hear a peep from government. Government not exactly looking out for our interests. And if it is not doing that, what good is it?
Actually, it might even be worse with regard to government and food. I read recently that our government is subsidizing high fructose corn syrup. Think about that. We have an epidemic of diabetes, and yet the government is subsidizing HFCS!!!
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
