    That's hilarious. Props to people like John Mackey who were able to cash in on these zombies' stupidity. icon_lol.gif

    Meh.
    I'm not sure what this proves. Anyone could be set up for mockery this way. It seems a bit harsh to call them stupid zombies.
    None of these people identified themselves themselves as "experts." (Only the guys making the video used that word.) They are just ordinary folks who wandered into a food fair, and politely said that some sample food tasted good. And of course it does. The fast food industry spends vast amounts to make their food hyper-palatable.
    I don't really buy "organic" food, since that label doesn't mean much. But I do care about the quality of the meat, fish, fruit and vegetables I buy, because I care about the quality of what I put in my body. That doesn't mean I can always taste the difference.
    This video seems like an awful lot of trouble to go through for a cheap laugh against pretty harmless people who are otherwise just minding their own business.

    An entirely expected topic from Riddler.

    (sung to the tune of All About That Bass)

    Because you know he's all about that Frack,
    GMOs GMOs no organic,
    He's all about the Frack,
    GMOs GMOs no organic
    He's all about that Frack n GMOs GMOs,
    no organic,
    He's all about that Frack n GMOs GMOs,
    no organic,

    Ask Riddler about how GMOs and Monsanto are going to help the worlds starving needy by giving their seeds and plants to those people. For free. lol!

    I love how we're considered food snobs because you want to eat real food I'm not chemically engineered compounds. Not surprised though where it came from...

    i will take a pass on fish genes in my strawberries -
    thank you

    Oh wait - according riddler and the Monsanto totalitarian new world order, i do not get a choice or get know what is in my food. Monsanto has now spent way over 100 million to fight any food labeling proposed requirements.

    Just because a bunch of numbskulls at a farmers market could not say what GMO is - we should all have to just go along with the idiots ?

    And as far as the OP video - what does that prove ?
    That corporate America and even a couple average pranksters can lie to people and get them to say nice things about artificial ingredients and non-sustainably raised food ?
    That's nothing new - Cigarettes have 600 chemicals allowed as additives and Europe doesn't allow about 400 chemicals in their food that we allow here, like yoga mat plastic in Subway bread, as a for example icon_wink.gif

    It's kind of funny the people getting offended by this video. While they might lack a sense of humor, it's also a reflection of how their minds are convinced that organic equates to better tasting food even if, in many cases it doesn't.

    The snobbery comes from the people who look down there nose at people who don't eat organic. I really don't care what you eat. Just don't lecture me on how my diet mountain dew is killing me or make passive aggressive remarks about how you gave those up for your health when I never asked your opinion in the first place.

    hey muscleboundfem,
    Just an FYI, this is a health and fitness social network site for anyone who wants to join or read it - so discussions of nutrition and the best things to eat, happen often here and discussions of sports, athleticism, and exercise. For those of us who look better than most any guys of any age, we give our advice of how we got there - that's how this website works. What you are reading here is opinions of what's the best way to get there.
    I don't think u need to worry about anyone wondering about how u got to where u are now - your endorsement of junk soda and your picture tells us the story, u have lived to tell, lol : ) joking

    300,000 to 400,000 americans now die each year from obesity directly related to addiction to junk food and soda - be it diet, or otherwise : (
    no joke
