    And directly tied to health statistics.

    I just wish that the general public would educate themselves in these matters, and come to realize that the majority of food processors have 3 motivations; profit, shelf life, and growth. Nutrition, safety, and healthfulness take a backseat, if they are considered at all. If and when the public makes the last 3 items their criterion for food choices, the food industry will come to understand that their priorities will be met, when they meet ours.

    I know, when pigs fly....................:rolleyes:;)
