Not worry, but I am conscious for health reasons. Fruit and vegetables are important to me (trying to find a restaurant in Phoenix that serves vegetables is not easy - coleslaw is NOT a decent alternative in my book).
I also won't eat fries (or fast food) more than twice a week.

Yes, I try to avoid eating genetically altered foods as there has not been enough research done on them by the FDA or other reputable organizations proving that the chemicals and processes used to modify the foods make them safe to eat.

Working at grocery, i can honestly tell you, even if you buy organic there is no gaurantee the way that it was packaged, transported, or even purchased(i.e. placed on a dirty belt, or in a dirty cart) that the itme is "pure."

Generally, no. I live life to the full, and as long as it isn't obviously too fatty I'll eat it. I love a good bacon sandwich! I'm not too concerned about GM products, or non organic products. To me, GM and organic items taste the same anyway, so I couldn't care less. I wouldn't go out of my way to esnsure a product I buy is organic; I take the view that if it was harmful, it wouldn't be on sale!

It keeps me alive and its going to kill me eventually...much like Oxygen provides free radicals, which is kinda ironic, given that the very thing needed to keep you alive is the very thing that makes sure you die eventually.

Quoting CaptOveur (Reply 22): Who else would deep fry beef, or ruin perfectly good seafood by imersing it in boiling oil?
Or fry vegetables (okra at least,) defeating the entire purpose of eating them.
I really don't worry about what I eat although I know that a)it'll eventually catch up with me and b)I should worry as I know for example, I eat foods high on sodium but so far there has been no side effects that I know of. Only when I start getting ill over what I eat I'll revise my diet, until then, it's a glass of bacon grease for breakfast!

I do my own cooking at home - I'm very conscious of what I buy thats going to go in what I cook. Fresh herbs, spices, produce, check the expiration dates on everything in the store, good quality oils, fresh seafood (nothing beats New Sagaya in Anchorage for that!), decent cuts of meat (Harris Ranch Beef - again, New Sagawya www.newsagaya.com ) . . .. most everything -save fish and meat - is purchased at the US Military Commissary on Elmendorf AFB . . . about 40% savings over 'civilian' groceries.
When I'm working, I'm pleasantly surprised to see plenty of fresh vegetables. Fresh fruits as well. Everything is standard Sysco and FSA crap . . .
