What about the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? What is its role in keeping our diets healthful. Not its concern, I'd say.
Above we see a Bacon Cheddar Double-Burger. Alone it has 1,770 calories, a full day's allotment for some people. The sodium load is 2,380 milligrams, more than twice a healthy daily amount.
Of course, the sweet potato fries add calories, sodium, and fats. And the milk shake? That one has a slice of apple pie blended into it. Can we get any crazier with food preparation?
How interesting that the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) [reference] exists to educate us about topics the government is unwilling to address properly.
The CSPI is an entity not beholding to the corporations and businesses that support unhealthy living choices. Its Website offers many facets for improving our lives.
