    Of course food has no moral value, it has nutritional value. It is undeniably proven that food effects our health, and that some foods are exceptionally healthy for our bodies while other foods are not. Unhealthy foods contribute to numerous illnesses, stroke, heart disease, diabetes cancer. Any food that can make you sick is bad. It is what it is. I think it’s more important that we stop measuring our value as a person by what we eat, what we look like etc. But don’t kid yourself that junk food is anything other than junk.

      I’m assuming you didn’t read the entire thing. Or have a hard time actually understanding. She isn’t saying junk food is healthy. But a lot of people will develop eating disorders over labeling food like this. That psychological distress is going to cause more harm down the road than just having a bag of chips or some cake every so often. Also, genetics play a HUGE part in a lot of those. Genetics are the bullet. You can eat nothing but healthy food and still die of a heart attack at the age of 50. I’ll take eating a little bit of junk and enjoying my life and I think most people feel that way too.

      • Mrs says:

        I work in genetics. I understand the article. People can eat what they choose. Junk food is junk, It deserves the label. No need to attack people, it’s not a great communication approach.

    Without ingredient labels on food, I could get anaphylaxis from an Alpha Gal allergy from a lonestar tick bite. The information on food labels is necessary for people with allergies. Feeling guilty about eating something is minor compared to dying from lack of ingredient information.
