I day dream this scenario often and one conclusion I have come to a few times is the similarities between junk food now and cigarettes in the 1920's.
1.Both have been marketed to children
2. Both sell "Healthy Versions" of their unhealthy productsWhat would a dangerous product be without a seemingly safe alternative version of it? Every soda has a diet version or some kind of splenda-fake-sugar rip off (even though they are still bad for you in other ways) How do I see it? It doesn't matter if you have low fat version or some kind of less calorie scam on your menu, to me it's the same difference between Marlboro lites and Marlboro reds.
3. Everyone knows the products are bad but they continue to buy them
Ah yes, probably our most fatal flaw as humans is that if we like something it doesn't matter whether it's made out of rat poison, dog shit, or preservatives. If that product satisfies my indulgence enough then fuck it, I'm gonna eat it...or smoke it.
I may add more to this, for now it's just a test to see what kind of responses I get
