    Is that a package of processed food product or a candidate?

    Man is not chained to the nutritionally inert over processed offerings of the industrial food mill. Most choose it because they can’t be bothered to spend the time to prepare it themselves.

    How right you are! Most people today can’t make jello. Mac and cheese from a box is a stretch for them.

    Agreed. Most people are not aware of the work done in the 50’s to make wheat more productive, which change the gluten which the human body is now not able to process properly. Most problems with barley, rye, etc., is from cross contamination in the fields.
    Now we get much more bushels of wheat per acre, but it is a less healthy produce.

    People haven’t got time to cook – assuming, of course, that they have somehow learned to do that.

    The real issue is that people can’t afford to buy real, clean, whole food.

    And the serious issue is that between Big Ag and the food processors, we are being systematically poisoned, with the full complicity of our government.

    What can you make of a society that allows wheat to be bleached (removing all its natural vitamins and many nutrients) and then enriched (replacing natural vitamins and many nutrients) and prefers this to unbleached?

    Misinformed at best. To be fair, intentionally so.

    I wish that good food was cheaper. Take any example from any fast-food outlet’s “Dollar Menu”, and see if you can buy the ingredients for less than a dollar, let alone add the cost of the energy needed to cook it. I’ve tried and failed. Perhaps you could do better, but I believe the sad truth is that filling, focus-group-tested “food” is far cheaper than food that is good for you. Especially when you factor in the fact that the only way to protect yourself from food that is genetically modified is to buy certified organic.

    “Because they didn’t get taught how to do anything at home.Baby Boomers started the decline by spoiling their little busturds.”

    That’s an excuse for kids and teens, not for adults. With all of the cooking shows that abound on TV and the internet as well as the massive number of cookbooks and cooking websites, and community education classes, it’s never been easier to learn how to cook.

    “People haven’t got time to cook – assuming, of course, that they have somehow learned to do that. The real issue is that people can’t afford to buy real, clean, whole food.”

    I call BS on those assertions. There may be some disadvantaged people who may not have easy access to fresh groceries, and there may be some who have physical and/or health challenges that make preparing food a challenge. That is the reason I tempered my original comment to address “most people.” If people are too busy to spend 30 minutes cooking a meal, they need to look at their schedule. As for food costs, is usually cheaper to prepare fresh meals than boxed mixes. There are cooking shows, cook books, and internet resources devoted to budget cooking. The USDA has a web site devoted budget conscious, healthful recipes.
