Food is essential to our life and survival as a living being. If there is anything in common across the board between species and different living beings, it is that we eat food. We can only survive on food for so long. It’s universal that every human being on this earth interacts with food in some way every day. Whether it is cooking or consuming, food plays a dominant role in our society. Over the course of evolution, humans have gone from hunting and gathering to becoming creators and innovators in the kitchen. Taste is now dominant over quality when it comes to food. The stuff that is good for us doesn’t typically taste all that good anymore. The food industry has manipulated nature and has created their own variations of food that not only taste better, but can be mass produced and sold in the local markets.
If there is one thing that we are all familiar with, it is food. As a society, we bond over shared meals like Thanksgiving or a lavish meal with the family. Food is a central part of our social life and survival as human beings on both a physical and mental level. Food companies have managed to create foods that are both enjoyable and addicting, and there is a chance that almost everyone out there shares the same kind of favorite food as you. Commercialism is a big part of this trend, and has contributed to the popularity of specific food brands.
