What We’re Up Against Dept.: SAD Victim

01 Jun

Downing It

 

I’m currently reading an excellent book by Michael Moss, “Salt Sugar Fat: How The Food Giants Hooked Us”, about how the food industry (aided and abetted by the US Government) has turned most of us into complaint, addicted eating machines. Selling us convenient, overly processed, colorfully packaged, chemically modified and addictively tasty food while causing our health to go to hell with major obesity, heart disease, and diabetes epidemics (among a slew of other diet related ailments).

This gif (taken from a Burger King ad) really drove the point home for me. Humorous, revolting and SAD (as in Standard American Diet) simultaneously.
