I know this thread is bullshit but real talk the FDA has over the course of multiple generations FUCKED this country.

I mean for fucks sake look at this shit that they were teaching us back when the majority of people in this forum were kids:

View attachment 261542

6-11 SERVINGS OF CARBS A FUCKING DAY?!

And that's saying nothing about the food items they've approved for public consumption that can barely be considered food at all.

Compare shit like Sunny D in the US to the UK

Why in the fuck does the FDA allow for all of those additives like cornstarch and canola oil get added to our version?

This shit continues on and on:

Eat all these carbs!!!

And seriously, everyone should read labels on everything all the time and know what they mean.
Ingredients have been changing like crazy, so even on things you buy regularly, check. They're getting more and more devious with how they label ingredients too.
Preservatives, nitrates, artificial sugars and colors - stay away.
Try to make food at home as much as possible starting with the fewest, simplest ingredients.

Start making choices to avoid damaging source foods too - like palm oils and high fructose corn syrup.
Encourage manufacturers to start making food we should be eating instead.

The Froot Loops in Canada were some lame ass dull colors. Not bright vibrant colors like our American Froot Loops.

And causes lack of confidence in government in general.
I mean, it's just bullshit and serves no purpose except to turn people into corn-sugar addicted, slobbering morons.

Honestly the FDA needs to be disbanded and rebuilt from the ground up, they're either too powerful in some places or complete lame ducks in others thanks to lobbying, corruption, and lack of proper oversight.

i assume most of those images are meant to highlight the HFCS? a lot of the extra text is just more required information, like in the yogurt where it lists the names of the cultures but in the UK version it just says "yogurt."

the corn subsidies and lobbyists are a big reason why there's so much HFCS in america, the corruption runs all the way down

no, it's meant to highlight the additives, HFCS are the least of the concerns.

The fact that HFCS is sugar is not the big deal.
The big deal is HFCS is in practically everything and no one bothered to notice until it's too late.
Now almost everyone thinks food taste bad without it (and extra salt, etc). Or upset our food spoils so quickly without the preservatives.

I wonder if anyone's ever done a truly exhaustive list of government officials that have gone from positions of authority to the corporate world that they used to hold power over and just how dark and sad it would be. :sad2:

I remember the first time I went to Wendy's in Florida. They handed me my 'large' coke and I thought it was a joke or something. It was enough coke for a family of five 😂

One of these days I'm going to do an actual calculation on how many calories I've cut out of my diet since I've stopped drinking soda entirely, cause I used to drink at least 12oz of soda a day, every day, at a minimum. :rofl:
