Food Companies Prefer Profits Over Public Health

Food Companies Prefer Profits Over Public Health

A recent news talked about what New York Times reporter Michael Moss has to say about what goes behind many food companies who on the name of serving the best food are actually swindling money. He, in his new book, Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, has targeted the companies that are maneuvering their products in such a way that people can't resist.

After getting hold of some glaring documents, he managed to nail down the dirty game played in the minds of the bosses. He found that instead of putting health in front of profits, they infuse more salt, sugar, or fat to their products till the point that it's extremely compelling to gorge on.

While companies claim it to be purely safe business where they strike a balance between profits and consumer health, the writer referred to what a Yale University professor of psychology and public health, Kelly Brownell, had once said the processed-food industry to be a symbol of public health menace.

"As a culture, we've become upset by the tobacco companies advertising to children, but we sit idly by while the food companies do the very same thing", Mudd said. It's shocking that when over two-thirds of Americans are obese or overweight, and health cost is shooting up, companies are by and large turning blind eye to what sort of staggering cost one would have to pay with time.
