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:

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:

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

additives? there's some added vitamins and minerals here and there but none of that stood out to me as being something to avoid except HFCS which is EASILY the biggest concern there

Jesus.. anytime we travel in the USA I'm always blown away at your sizes.


Also who the hell is ordering a super sized pop and drinking the whole thing?!
It's the same price as the other ones. Only $1 for any size drink at McDonald's.

bruh, if you watch this graph and think that it's individual responsibility...............:bowrofl:

This is a tricky thing for me.

As a former fatass, it was my responsibility, and no one else's, to make better choices and develop discipline.

On the flip side, there's a lot of shit that the government needs to step in on, like the overuse of HFCS.

Wall Street getting involved in literally everything has made literally everything worse.
third party profit motive destroys anything it touches. Food, Medicine, Housing, you name it.
Hopefully Wall Street gets involved in internet porn and fucks it up so everyone finally sees whats happening. :rofl:

I'm a strong proponent of it being a "both" scenario.

It is both the individuals fault for allowing it to get that bad but the environment that individual exists in heavily contributes to it happening it at all and thanks to our environment being SO MUCH WORSE than basically anywhere else in the world as far as how food is pushed on us American's go into it already lagging behind.

Then you start getting into things like our school systems killing off cooking classes, fast food being THE MOST PREVALENT SOURCE OF FOOD IN THE COUNTRY, rising cost of staple ingredients due to shortages brought on either by environmental factors, exporting to other countries, or in some weird cases having them replaced with cash crops like fucking almonds.

It's a stacked tower of shit right now and it's already starting to topple.

I didn't grow up on the food pyramid, I got 3-2-4-4. 3 dairy, 2 meat, 4 bread/cereal, 4 fruit/veg.

It's like there's no actual scientific basis for this shit, it's just made up and arbitrary.

That's the tricky thing for me. It's difficult for me to ever say "the government needs to step in". :o
