Has the world gone mad? I find it amazing that when

people look at the ingredients and nutrition label of a

packaged food item, they are more engrossed in the nutrition

label rather than the actual food content. When I ask people

what they look for when they look at the label of the food they

are buying, they tell me they look for the saturated fat content;

or the amount of salt; or whether there is enough protein; or

what the fat and sugar content are; and even the vitamins

and minerals as is the case with milk and calcium. Very few are

interested in the actual ingredients. Modern thinking finds that

a food is OK as long as the nutrition label and the components

of food are in the right amounts deemed by the scientific

community and taught to the public by propaganda and

advertising.
