The Sad Future of the American Food Industry
- Last week, lobbyists for America’s corporate food producers celebrated a victory over the First Lady and her nutritional advisers by blocking proposed improvements to the public school lunch program.
- And yesterday I wrote an article about how America’s processed food corps have been bulking up their products with cellulose made from pine trees and cotton…..while neglecting to disclose this fact to the consumer.
And if this wasn’t bad enough….this morning I get a tweet from FrugalDad with a link to an infographic he created about the consolidation of America’s food supply.
And suddenly, my good mood went straight down the crapper.
Because when I see the size and wealth of these companies, I realize that there is no way any government (federal, state or municipal) will ever stand up and make legislative changes that put America’s health in front of corporate profits.
It’s never going to happen.
