    Here's a question for you. How come since DATCP or for that matter the USDA or the FDA that obesity has exploded along with diabetes, heart disease, cancer and the like? More and more research is looking at the relationship of disease with chronic inflammation and the question would thus arise, does industrialized foods cause or support the causes of chronic inflammation? (Not the sole cause but a contributing cause) Then the question arises, does governmental food policy promote chronic inflammation?

    But then for the sake of argument let's say the above is true and we vastly changed from an industrial food diet back to a more wholesome food diet of years ago, if then inflammation rates fell and with it so did the rates of disease, what would the economic impact be to the healthcare industry and the huge investment made in healthcare infrastructure and workforce manpower? What would the cost also be to the larger economy and to the national as well as local/state tax base?

    Just questions to ponder.
