    Look, I'm obviously being a smart ass. There's no doubt that many food additives are not good for you, but that's no reason to exaggerate and be hyperbolic about it. If you're worried about the mac 'n cheese packet, don't eat it. Have you tried Annie's mac 'n cheese products? They're very good, and the ingredient list is a little more understandable.

    But the thing is people trust this easy-Mac anyways because it is so commonly sold and it passed FDA. Me and you know that they are dumping everything t hey legally can into the food to make it as cheap as possible but the common person thinks this food is normal and that everything in the food is probably justified. They shouldnt be allowed to use humans as living waste disposal plants.

    Most of the people on here probably don't remember the old government commodities food program that ended in the early 90s. Better than half the South grew up on commodity cheese.

    Lol, my wife has fond memories of government cheese. She loved it as a kid, I guess it was akin to velveeta. Lol....

    You can't fix apathy, and I no longer trust the government to do anything right. Which is why I rail against government intervention into every facet of our lives. Where does it end? It doesn't. I say bring back personal responsibility.

    How is it about making people make the right choice, if trans fats aren't one of the choices?

    The trans fats are simply a symptom of larger problems , namely Americans would rather eat lots of cheap junk then a little nutrition, I switched my diet over recently to eating mainly steak and salads, and my grocery tab went up by a lot for less food, however I feel much better already
    I would ditch the salads.....and go with table veggies. Salad Dressings are nasty.

    Sure, lots of them are. I actually don't care for the sweet ones though. But my wife does.
