Consumers are foolish

When are consumers going to use some common sense? So now it’s being revealed that sugar isn’t all that healthy — really? Consumers are so easily influenced by commercials and packaging, it’s pathetic. The manufacturers of these products don’t care about our well-being. They are motivated by greed, so will never reveal negative information any more than the tobacco companies, fast food restaurants and a slew of others would.

My 95-year-old grandmother gave me some good advice. “If it’s man-made, consume in moderation or not at all.”

Lucy Holt
