Most all of you have added your confidence that companies are in need of labeling their ingredients fully and properly. Robb McKenzie's says sarcastically, "However, I can only think logically when it comes to this, because unless your food company is really shady, I don’t think that whatever chemicals are added to food are too harmful to the consumers; that is just a bad business practice". His point is that these companies are avoiding the question. I must object, because that line of thinking he quotes is not like fools gold, but is quite reasonable. For a consumer to note that a company is/has been shady is a logical reason to be skeptical of said company. The bigger companies must spend more money to ensure their large scale audience is safe. To take a case in point about the legitimacy of definitely avoiding "shady companies", early man might avoid avoid eating foreign objects based on past experiences for a matter of survival; surely, survival goes hand-in-hand with logic. Don't get me wrong, I wholeheartedly agree that dishonesty should not be tolerated or accepted with respect to food items. In contrast though, I argue that is room for food scientists for citing there studies; no room on the packaging and no room in our hearts. In other words, the transparency we ask for we don't even want to deal with. Who would want to buy a bag of Cheetos that looked like a college research paper, certainly not Jared and Kyle from down the road. I side with the author of the article in discussion. I would add that these, "dishonest companies", hire scientist who study and understand the chemical makeup of a tomato, and regularly test how the chemicals they use not only benefit, but also may hurt the product and the consumer.
