7. Junk food has destroyed our ability to know what to eat.
“The junk food industry has created artificial flavors and linked them with energy-rich refined carbohydrates like high-fructose corn syrup. That combination conditions strong preferences.

People have learned to link synthetic flavors with feedback from energy-rich compounds that obscure nutritional sameness and diminish health.” - Fred Provenza, a professor of ecology at Utah State University (Vox)
