Processed foods or food that is processed before you purchase it and is ready to heat and eat is very convenient. It saves time, money, and work, which is great because so many of us are in a hurry to get other important things done. The question is… are we also hurrying to an early grave? The answer is an unfortunate yes. Many of these every day foods that we purchase because they are fast and easy are helping us to a fast and easy grave. The ingredients that are meant to preserve the life of the product are doing nothing to preserve the life of the consumer… that is certain.
