Can we trust the food we eat? We apparently have no choice unless people begin to grow their own foods, which usually mostly consist of fruits and vegetables in home gardens and rural farms. But what about our meats?

Beef, fish and poultry are being prepared by more process means to save food manufactures time and money. But are they taking into account the health of the public? Or is the processing strictly for profits? People are waking up to the food processing scam.

The role of food manufacturers in prioritizing health cannot be overlooked. Food manufacturers have a responsibility to prioritize health in their marketing campaigns by promoting nutritious options and giving honest information.

One crucial factor that affects food choices is the economic aspect. Many individuals and families often opt for cheaper, processed foods that are high in calories but low in nutritional value. Work schedules have taken time away from focusing on the nutritious benefits of natural, home cooked meals and forced people to settle for processed, convenience foods.

“From 1999 –2000 through 2017 –March 2020, US obesity prevalence increased from 30.5% to 41.9%. During the same time, the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%. (NHANES, 2021).


Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. These are among the leading causes of preventable, premature death.”

Health insurers are cashing in on the illnesses people have from consuming processed foods. Even doctors neglect to give better food options and choose to offer medications to sustain the illnesses.

Social/Economic Factors

Healthy foods are often marketed in high income areas and placed out of reach, and cost, for people who live in more condensed, urban areas. The quality of food is greatly noticeable. Even higher income people like the wealthy and the famous can get food special made and catered. But low-income communities are often stuck in food deserts.

Food deserts, areas where access to healthy food options is limited, are a significant concern. One aspect that plays a crucial role in food choices is health education and awareness. Food manufacturers can prioritize health by actively participating in educational campaigns that inform individuals about the importance of a balanced diet and the impact of healthy food choices on overall well-being.

Health education and access to healthy foods should be priority in public schools and all areas. The people need to be able to trust food manufactures and not have to go out of their way to find good food.

A growing crisis is childhood obesity. “Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States, putting children and adolescents at risk for poor health. For children and adolescents aged 2-19 years in 2017-20201: The prevalence of obesity was 19.7% and affected about 14.7 million children and adolescents.

Obesity prevalence was 12.7% among 2- to 5-year-olds, 20.7% among 6- to 11-year-olds, and 22.2% among 12- to 19-year-olds. Childhood obesity is also more common among certain populations.”

Ensuring the accessibility of nutritious food options is essential in prioritizing health. Food manufacturers can work towards making healthy products available in various locations such as schools, workplaces, and supermarkets, making it easier for individuals to make healthier choices.

By considering factors like affordability, cultural influences, marketing strategies, convenience, and accessibility, they can actively contribute to individuals’ overall well-being and promote healthier food choices.
