This is not an endorsement of RT, but definite truths here as well. The narrator is right about how they blame the individuals while they pour in the poison. The choices are structured by the companies who sell us calories. The poor fall more victim to this system too, they are correct about this as well.
Two interesting comments I got from the Youtube website.
Having been a part of the working poor for the duration of my childhood, I can say that the studies have missed what my brother and I dub as the "paycheck meal." Often, blue collar families will eat the most and the best right after getting their paycheck and then have nothing left at the end of the month. This constant binge and withdrawal slows the metabolism and leads to unhealthy eating habits that are hard to break.
I eat far better at the start of a month then I do later as a general trend In fact, it has not escaped my notice there is a pattern to my digestive problems where I have more fruits and vegetables there is far less of a problem. This when I can afford to have more salads, fruits and variety. The blue collar theory above, fits this household. We have times of plenty and want, it would be worse without generous friends who bring meals etc, but it is what it is.
This person sums things up quite well:
There are chemicals in processed food designed to make you crave more, make you eat more, hence get fatter, eat more, and on and on. It's a trap to SELL you more so the corporations can PROFIT from obesity. It's all about the money...Then there's the issue that this mix of chemicals, overtime, is leading to cancer, so then big pharma makes money from your disease. In the process of poisoning you, corporations prosper, and you die "young," thus helping control the world population explosion.
It's all about profit.
When I talk about my problems with size acceptance, such things are ignored. I see size acceptance where they want fat promoted, [fat people should BE helped and not discriminated against] as part of this overall system, where fat Americans will not ask some questions about why are we growing so huge? Where they will be given two non-choices, told they must accept their growing obesity, and embrace their obesity and for the larger side of the spectrum, their ill health or to be one with the WLS, failed diet industry where life becomes a march of condemnation, pain, suffering and false assumptions that people can control their body sizes.
