Yes, sugar can be dangerous. Yes, processed foods can be harmful. Yes, there are more obese people. We built a world aimed at convenience, and are now crying about it? It also has an upside.
Cheap and convenient foods might be seen as a curse, but for some of us they were a blessing. Sure, they are crap, but they fill the stomach. Growing up in a poor household, I was glad to have this cheap crap available. We couldn't afford anything else.
So therein lies the social conundrum.
I am proud of you for using "conundrum" in a sentence.
