Why You Love Junk Food
05/13/2010
IconAsked by the Pew Research Organization why they choose to eat so much junk food, the respondents overwhelmingly say it's due to its convenience.  The second most common reason is junk food's good flavor, and the third reason is because it is so heavily advertised.  Fourth is its affordability, and the final reason why people eat so much junk food is "ignorance of food values."  Yeah, I really believe that last reason!Since approximately three-quarters of the respondents eat junk food out of convenience, it seems a good time for them to re-work their lives so that breakfast and dinner are family meals at home, and lunch is considered a lighter repast to keep the engines going during the day.Want to really relieve stress?  Take off your figurative plate all the overscheduling - running around with too many activities and piling on too many responsibilities.  Two-career homes leave little time for the lovely, "home-y" amenities.  Rethink your lives and you'll probably live longer, while being healthier and happier.  Having lots of personal possessions and living beyond your means is a disastrous recipe for stress that leads to all kinds of self-destructive behaviors.
