Suppose food came with a list of side effects. For example, suppose one of your favourite fast food restaurant listed on the package that eating food from the establishment could lead to obesity. Then it listed all the health risk factors connected with being obese such as, type 2 diabetes, heart disease stroke, lymphoma, kidney failure, high blood pressure, depression, or low self-esteem would you still eat there?
This thought came to my mind after I saw a prescription drug commercial on TV. They were advertising a drug for depression but the side effects were worse than the medical condition!
Back to my previous question, would you still eat at that establishment? If you were honest, you would probably say yes, (unless of course your honest answer was no) because I know I would still eat at that establishment. Why does knowledge only take us so far? For example, I seriously would not take depression pills that could help me because of the side effects but I would still eat some greasy (yet delicious) fast food burger that I know hinders my weight loss progress! I think this is crazy. But just one more thing I have to work on…
