Food Additives

Most of us would agree that as a nation we eat an enormous amount of processed and preserved foods. In fact what we refer to as food sometimes constitutes a real stretch of the imagination. Michael Jacobson, in the April 1975 edition of Smithsonian, stated, The United States, not surprisingly, has been the leader in the genetic engineering of food crops and in the laboratory creation of new foods. Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln, if they could visit us, would probably have some difficulty distinguishing between a toy store and a super market. They would not even recognize as foods such products as artificial whipped cream in its pressurized can, or some breakfast 'cereals' that are almost half sugar and bear little resemblance to cereal grains. . . . Many of the new foods do save us time and trouble, but they are often costly, in terms of both dollars and, ultimately, health.
