To say food can't be compared to drug use because the effects aren't as bad.. well, then I guess marijuana isn't a drug then. Pain meds. Lots of drugs aren't as bad as the ones most here are thinking of. If I handed you a something right now that made you feel good, but gave you heart disease, attacked your organs (whether you realize it or not), made you fat, made your brain slow down, made you want more and more and more.. would you take it? No. Yet people are addicted to it anyway. People risk their lives for it every day. It may not have an immediate noticeable bad reaction to it.. but neither does smoking. Neither does a lot of drugs. "Food" IS a drug these days. No two ways about it. The fact that everyone is in denial about what it's doing to them just because they can't see or feel it right away, is exactly why most of us are unhealthy and or fat. If not now, just you wait. People know what fake foods can do to them.. people know what drugs can do to them... and it doesn't stop them. Sounds like addiction to me.
