* Pass the poison, please.

 (link to  YDN article, above)

Every morning I observe teen-agers eating Nachos and drinking Mountain Dew at 7:15 for "breakfast."
What does it do to a child's spirit (to say nothing of its body) to seldom have in hand a piece of food which looks like it was RECENTLY connected to the earth, or a creature whose mouth was connected to something growing from the earth?
Soon, everything children eat will not only be Frankenfood, it will be twelve or fifteen machine-engineered steps away from anything reminiscent of something living: a cow, a tree, a legume.
Pass the Pringles, please.
