In the day of the smart phone, anyone too fricking dumb
See, although there's a whole lot of dumb, that's to be sure of, I'm not sure it's as much dumb as it is lazy and disinterested on a whole in things like nutrition and food in general besides knowing what they like to put in their mouths. And hey look, whatever floats people's boat, but if people were even slightly interested in the nutritional value of food and prepared foods, as you say in the day of the smart phone and the answer only a google away, people would already know about it, and many do, but those who don't have no interest in it because other things are apparently more important to them and grocery stores being forced to incur the cost of putting that on foods isn't going to make a difference to them anyway. It's not like it's the first time people are putting things in their mouths here. We all do it multiple times a day, and have so since we've been born.
I agree. This nanny state crap is sickening. It's not for lack of information already out there. It's for lack of care or concern. Let them do what they want to. If they want to eat garbage and become a walrus, that's on them, but to say we need nutritional info on prepared foods is a huge waste, as they're going to eat what they want to anyway. They know better. They just don't care. How many people do you think actually go to say Taco Bell and think about nutrition? Seriously? There are always very long lines in the drive through, and this after Taco Bell even admitted a year ago that their meat isn't all meat, but lots of fillers. They never missed a beat. Why? Because the average person going to Taco Bell doesn't care about that. They just want it, and many crave it. So let them have at it. I'm far less concerned over the nutritional information as I am full disclosure of food preparation and such being made accessible to the public online, and it is for the most part. And like with nutrition, if you care to know, you can easily find that out and be in the know today with our technology.
