Why do Americans eat such bad quality food, which is often illegal to export to the rest of the first world?



You'd think "free" capitalism would mean better standards, instead I only see oligopolies setting abysmal quality levels.

lol. free markets don't give a shit about quality. they care about profits.

>> No.12578364


There are few things that are actually "free" markets. Big food is not one of them. The regulatory apparatus in the US* means only big corps can successfully bribe officials to establish standards in their favor.

Seed oils are disastrous to human health and yet they're used almost universally in processed foods because they're cheap. And the mass usage of sugar ex:Starbucks is the largest milkshake seller in the country. They put some coffee in it and presto, it's a "frappachino" not a fucking milkshake. And 3x meals a day as a corporate meme (fucks up the activation of the fasting state which triggers a lot of biochemical repair in very simple terms). And low salt which exacerbates depression and testosterone decline. And the demonization of "fat" as opposed to shit seed oils.

In the US, we love to piss away trillions to treat the side effects of shit food. It's big business.

* - US food companies by far are not the only guilty parties. Nestle has the reduced IQ of millions of 3rd worlders on its hands by pimping shit baby formula into hospitals rather than breast milk.

>> No.12578384

Because the majority of US citizens live at or near the poverty line.
Average incomes are consistently low due to the nature of the US domestic policies that favour big business due to their economic power and significant political influence.
There is very little the average US citizen can do to improve their lives except by economising at the expense of their overall health and welbeing.

In a capitalist economy it is to the advantage of firms to withhold information from the public, which is why the government needs to enforce environmental and food safety laws. Otherwise we'd be eating rat meat and poo

Uhhh no? Free market capitalism is literally "Whoever can do it cheaper and faster wins". What makes you think that would mean high food standards? Regulation gets in the way of profits.

>chicken in a can
I occasionally eat tuna out of the can if I’m feeling lazy. Normally it’s deenz, and if I’m making any kind of beef/chicken/pork I absolutely either bought it fresh or froze it myself.

Only a literal nigger would think to eat something like that. Even a homeless person would just go to McDonald’s or something.

>Even Mexicans probably eat better quality food than that dog shit
Mexicans eat the exact same shit we do you know. Almost all their meat and grains are imported from the US. The whole point of NAFTA was to forcibly open their market to the goliath that is American agriculture.
