The “logic” of the American food system

Feed corn to cattle to fatten them up; put corn in EVERYTHING humans eat and marvel at climbing obesity rates.

Umm…okay.

Corn, by any other name:

High -fructose corn syrup
Citric acid
Lactic acid
Glucose
Fructose
Dextrose
Lecithin (when not derived from soybeans)
Maltodextrin
Un/modified starch
MSG
Sorbitol
Xanthan gum

This is not an exhaustive list.
Life really sucks if you’re allergic.
