Is “junk” food really junk?

Lauren Mahome, Op-Ed Writer

The one thing we’ve all hoped and dreamt of has finally come true. I am humbled to announce that “junk” food is not really junk for our bodies at all.

In fact, I would argue that junk food contains all of the ingredients our bodies can ever need. That’s right, the sweet glaze over your Krispy Kreme donut that we love so much is actually what our bodies needed all along. No wonder sugary fat is all we ever crave.

What’s even more stunning is the fact that according to the research of Medical Organization of Realistic Natural Substances (MORONS) your body might be deficient in the essential nutrients contained only in junk, leading to diseases like cancer and diabetes. Could junk be the cure for cancer?

This amazing misconception will truly change science and our everyday lives as we know it. The general public thought that the millions around the globe who were eating any and everything in sight were careless and unhealthy. Now, we have come to realize these people are geniuses.

Through their extensive research of MORONS, they have unleashed the secret of having a long life and disease-free world. These people are the real heroes that we should honor for their founding of junk. What would we do without them?

What makes junk such a healthy part of our diet is the overload of genetically engineered ingredients within the food. Thanks to genetic engineering corporations and their technology, lab created foods are now way healthier than food that is naturally grown .

Companies have constructed food full of such “harmful” ingredients that all of them counteracted each other and turned into a magical, life changing, ingredient.

Unfortunately, we live in a parallel universe that makes the idea of any this being true not only ridiculous but very impossible.

Satirical humor and mockery aside, The practices of adding deadly chemicals to the food we eat is very real, and it is something that is greatly affecting the health of the world. With the addition of genetically modified foods (GMOs) into the food chain, only time and extensive study can fully tell the end result.

According to nutritionist Andrew W. Saul, there have been numerous studies showing not only the negative effects of GMO foods in regards to health, but also the effects of GMO foods on the genetic coding of the body.

A real-life example of this is the addition of pig genes to tomatoes to make them larger and juicier. The body was not designed to recognize pig genes inside of tomatoes, which changes our body composition.

Playing with nature has always proven to be a mistake, and will continue to do so in the future. Take initiative and do your own research.  If we all take steps to stay away from foods containing harmful ingredients and  begin checking labels, that awareness puts us on the road to a happier, healthier and longer life.
