Love Jeff's post... I think

I appreciate Jeff's post here, and hopefully I got his point. I'm absolutely no fan of self-righteous and self-appointed groups like CSPI who get far too much attention from their pals in the main stream media. They don't deserve it. Anyone who thinks they don't have an axe to grind is drinking Kool Aid. But I'm sure it's organic Kool Aid. As a corporate RD in another presentation pointed out, normal people don't have time or money for high minded food purity. They just want to eat, and if companies can give them a choice of healthier products, that's wonderful, as long as those consumer actually pick those items. Badgering from CSPI types is not helping to convince them. It's just making healthy eating look like something for grim angry Puritans.
