Questions & Answers

Q: What are some tactics used by the food industry to deceive consumers?

The food industry employs false marketing, misleading packaging, and the use of certain ingredients to make products appear healthy when they are actually harmful. For example, diet foods like Diet Coke can lead to increased food cravings and a cycle of dieting.

Q: How are chemicals allowed in food without proper testing?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) relies on the food industry to determine the safety of ingredients, leading to a conflict of interest. Europe, on the other hand, has stricter regulations and requires proof of safety before allowing ingredients in food.

Q: Are big food companies using unethical practices?

Many legacy big food companies prioritize their bottom line over consumer health. They use similar tactics to the tobacco industry to make their products addictive and prioritize marketing over transparency.

Q: Is organic food always a safe choice?

Organic food is generally a safer option, but consumers should still read labels carefully. Some organic companies may use organic ingredients but still include non-organic additives, so it's important to look for the USDA certified organic seal.
