more on food

i stumbled across this article the other day which gives an interesting perspective on the issue of "big food" and corporate control over marketing and production of food in america.


the article is a brief interview of bruce bradley who was a former executive in the big food industry and has since decided to take a stand against processed foods. unfortunately i think this is a rare case where someone in power chooses to acknowledge the facts that go against "tradition" or the way things have been done (in this case i suppose it would be taking any and all measures to cut costs, GMOs, etc).

i think an interesting point that bradley made was the use of "self-serving" research that massive corporations use in order to make false information about their appear truthful and beneficial to the general public. it is truly up to consumers to decide which companies they want to get behind and support and what kinds of food products they are will to put in their bodies.
