So you eat what fits the box, not what is the more tasty or healthy for you.
I grow barbados cherries, otherwise known as acerola on your bottle of vitamin C. One cherry has as much C as an orange. You won't find them fresh, in most places.
The addition of many chemicals in food, may have a lot to do with your opinion on why eating veggies alone, can cause problems.
I will die also, but after a more tasty meal than your last one.
For every person you can come up with that has died from eating better, I can name ten who died from cancer. Eating the poison and thinking it is a better way, is why I would never take your advice on any health subject.
I doubt that your food tastes better than the packaged food that you eat. I have good friends who grow their own. I eat and enjoy theirs. I particularly enjoy their tomatoes. But I ain't giving up mine either. Plus, it's hard to beat the convenience.
There is arguably more evidence that chemicals are helping us than killing us.
I also stand against effete food snobbery. But no, I don't laugh when I see the natural eaters and vegans die early. I think it's sad because they might have lived at least as long also enjoying the tasty packaged stuff they were deathly afraid would kill them (before they died).
