Fast Food's Biggest Customer: Not the Poor, But the Middle Class - Yahoo! News

Makes sense to me. Comments?

The poor eat ... starches. Starches with flavors, but starches.

We spent the weekend with my niece's family in Oklahoma. She has 3 teenagers and one in college. The entire weekend they ate at Fast Food places. I felt so vegetable deprived by the time we got home last night. I don't consider fast food salads veggies. I think in suburbia where a lot of us live, kids are so busy with sports and activiites that many people don't think they have the time to cook healthy meals at home. That is why they invented crock pots.

I just read a book called "The Calcium lie", and in this book we hear that in the good old days before we got refrigerator we salted our food, and sea salt and rock salt contains all the minerals we need.
We learned that salt is dangerous, and avoided it.
During years we got to little minerals since we avoided the real salt, and the soil where we grow our food also has less minerals. Our body craves the important minerals, and thats why people eat McDonalds; we get fatty fries and burger and sweet coca cola, and we eat it because our body says we need it for our minerals.
Dont know if I agree with everything in the book but it left me thinking...
