    Really fascinating. 750 strains of raspberry flavoring -- who but a
    supertaster could imagine that?

    Well, they can keep all 750 of them to themselves. Not a raspberry
    fan.

    You're welcome. I missed the first part of it so I too need to go
    back and see it in it's entirety.

    What a psycho. Take your medication, Barbara. Heaven forbid somebody
    should post something of interest as opposed to your incessant,

    > Oh - you might.... but why?


    I suppose anyone who cares what they ingest should have a mild
    interest. I didn't see it this time, but last time it aired I
    remember my vegan daughter being pretty shocked at how many "natural
    fruit" flavors come from beaver castor. [and she's never had the
    'pleasure' of smelling fresh beaver castor]

    If you stop and really think about what that report reveals, it is
    this; the food industry, processed foods and beverages use flavors
    and our reaction to them to get people 'addicted'. The researcher
    admitted to it. The food industry is using flavorings to compel
    consumers to buy and eat and drink more and more and more again and
    again and again.

    How do you think that correlates to our obesity and poor health in the
    population at large? Think there is any coincidence there!

    But grandma's cooking was much the same. Should food be intentionally
    bland so we eat less of it? The spice trade goes back centuries and
    this is an elevation of it. I don't advocate processed foods, but I
    do like good flavors in what I do eat.

    It's interesting to note that 3 of the top 4 companies are companies
    in the industry are Swiss and German (the other one was
    British/Italian, but moved to the U.S.).

    Ahahahahaha. . . .

    Like yoose nincompoops never before realized that junk food is laced
    with ingredients that make it addictive... and to add insult to injury
    what do yoose pinheads think Madison Avenue does to twist your low IQ
    minds. This is nothing new, there have been snake oil charlatans
    since forever. How did you think Coca Cola got so rich selling
    sweetened water, and now yoose lamebrains can't even drink plain water
    lest it comes from a bottle with a designer label.... it's tap water
    yoose mental masturbators, just that's it's from someone elses tap.

    It sure give the big corporation a free pass to grow/raise food for
    mass consumption without regard for flavor. Just add flavor later.

    Grandma had better ingredients to start with.

    was this a repeat ? it sounds familiar, and not just an extension of
    the stuff David Kessler's been talking about for over a decade (fat,
    salt, & sugar's effects on the brain)

    Exactly. Grandma's fruits and vegetables and meat and chicken had
    real flavor. The flavor was not GMO bred out of the fruits and
    vegetables to make them resistant to disease and make them picture
    pretty to look good on the grocery aisle, and the beef and chicken
    were pasture raised.

    There was no bland food, spices and seasonings were used but only as
    enhancements, not to make the foods addicting. There were no highly
    processed foods when Grandma was around. Not like there is now.
