We humans only eat what we like, and we died when we could not find or were not given such food. The industry knows that well in affluent societies, and that is why in part we do have an epidemic of obesity. Ignoring the basic foundations of physiology and survival in the name of -science- perverted into -faith- is the perfect recipe for criminal failure! Eating-drinking is one of our basic needs; the others being sex, shelter, family-social support and skills. This did work pretty well in the pre- and early industrial age, but with industrialization of the food supply agriculture, etc., based on only limitless profit, we witnessed a tectonic perversion in politics, policies, physiopathology, epigenetics, and ultimately public health. The current quasi-unanimous attitude is to blame the victim for example, the obese and-or the messenger for example, maybe this author.
