But it's not just how food is prepared, first of all, most of the foods we eat in this part of the world have been genetically modified. That is a problem in itself. I recently stopped eating corn because of this. But it's not just corn. I don't eat seedless fruit. That's an oxymoron in itself. 

Then we have all the processed foods. The powdered cheese (yuck) all of the zero nutritional value  sodas and drinks. Coupled with little exercise and supplementation. 

I see mothers at the mall giving their BABIES Mcnuggets and pepsi to eat and drink!!! Cry

And It's not just black people. 

So true. And I never understood giving babies fast food. It's so much easier for little kids to get addicted because they don't know any better. I hate to see little kids BEGGING for fast food and parents are so quick to jump up and get it for them because it's convenient.

Always loved soul food but when I eat it I feel like I'm getting fat as I shovel a spoon full of it in my mouth.. Older people will always have a tough time changing this because they don't know the reason why they eat it but they were taught this way.. Sometimes to them this is the only way

have you ever read any of Michael Pollan's books? I really like the way that he discusses corn in "the omnivore's dilemma" I never realized how much corn was in everything

i agree its not just  black people. when I worked on a reservation, I remember some of the moms giving their babies watered down Coke in their bottles. Cry Diabetes was no joke there. and of course the babies that would drink sausage gravy in their bottles.

Shocked say what now?

was it in "Supersize Me" that it was said that in America, as soon as they can start having solid foods, the most common thing that babies eat is french fries
