I don't see why that should necessarily be the case.

Bread should only last the day.
Why can't it be good for you? Or to put it another way, why is it necessarily bad for you?

I eat 'that crap' at the supermarket , along with most people, so what is it in bread that I don't want to know about?

But I actually agree with the former. Nobody talks about the innumerable pathogens in food and the toxic - sometimes carcinogenic chemicals - that they produce. Preservatives prevent those from multiplying, as well as maintaining the micronutrient levels within food.

Don't get me wrong, I think growing your own vegetables and baking your own bread is fantastic - viva the environmentally friendly cottage garden. But in the big scheme of things, I sincerely doubt whether there are any measurable benefits on health.
