Why dont more people seem to know or care about how eating junk foods or processed foods is bad for you?

how these foods make you feel depressed even? and what about the chemicals in all the foods..and cokes, etc? sweets?

why so many seem to not care and eat it anway?
why dont more switch to a fruit and vegetable and water diet? how it makes you feel better and different?

IS IT IGNORANCE OR WHAT? WHY? (as surely by the age of 25...one should have figured this out even if hadnt been raised in a family who ate american foods?)

Answer on Why dont more people seem to know or care about how eating junk foods or processed foods is bad for you?

Junk foods are addictive. Our bodies crave high fat/sodium foods as a leftover from when our ancestors went through lean times. It's in the genes. Food manufacturers know this, that's why everything is so irresistible Ever notice how obesity runs in families (several generations), especially women, whose bodies are "programed" to eat this way to be ready for pregnancy. Denying oneself these heavenly forbidden foods is something that has to be worked on, it takes a lot of will power. Most people would rather feel the satisfaction of downing ice cream and cookies, than feel the deprivation of eating healthy. I myself eat healthy and am a vegan after many years of being a junk food junkie.
