Salt Sugar Fat: NY Times Reporter Michael Moss on How the Food Giants Hooked America on Junk Food

Common Dreams

Food companies have known for decades that salt, sugar and fat are not good for us in the quantities Americans consume them. But every year, people are swayed to ingest about twice the recommended amount of salt and fat — and an estimated 70 pounds of sugar. We speak with New York Times reporter Michael Moss about how in his new book, “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us.” In a multi-year investigation, Moss explores deep inside the laboratories where food scientists calculate the “bliss point” of sugary drinks or the “mouth feel” of fat, and use advanced technology to make it irresistible and addictive. As a result of this $1 trillion-a-year industry, one-in-three adults, and one-in-five children, are now clinically obese.

    And that’s not to even mention how they’re killing us with the toxic GMOs, RBGH (among other things) in our beef, who knows what, besides the steroids in chickens (no, really, who knows what? Anyone?)

    Is ANYTHING safe to eat anymore?

      The living conditions that them chickens live in in those factory farms are realy nasty. Chicken are easily one of the worst foods out there.Not only are those chickens given boatloads of antibiotics but growth hormons, and even anti- depresants. Have you ever watched the show call “The Earthlings”? If not I reccomend the show to every one that is concerned about what animal that they eat that comes from a factory farm. That show will about make you sick about how they treat them animals for slaughter.
