This is a great article by William Anderson, MA, Licensed Mental Health Counsellor, Weight Loss Expert, and Author of “The Anderson Method”, putting the blame squarely where it belongs – just as it was for the cigarette companies.
Here is a little excerpt from this article:
“In the 1980s, R.J. Reynolds (Camels, Winston’s, Salem, etc,) bought Nabisco (Oreos, Chips Ahoy, Ritz Crackers, etc. ) and Phillip Morris (Marlboro, Virginia Slims and others - the largest tobacco company in the world) bought Kraft Foods (Kraft Cheese, Maxwell House coffee, Kool-Aid, Oscar Mayer and many other products you are familiar with). Then they bought General Foods Corp.”
“The companies that sell you food have been taken over by the same characters that figured out how to make a fortune getting you ‘consumers’ addicted to a substance that they knew made you sick and could eventually kill you in a horrible way. They aggressively and secretly worked in labs to make the addiction even more powerful than it naturally was. They even went after kids to sell their addictive poison. It’s not a theory. It’s proven fact. And now, they’re doing the same thing with food.”
