Natural Or Artificial Foods?

Sat May 03, 2003 12:11 am

Just a quick, informal survey (for lack of any other topic springing to mind). Do you prefer "natural" foods or artificial, synthetic foods? Why?

Do you prefer the taste/smell/texture? Or is it for "health reasons" (i.e. fat/caloric/chemical content) I know that there are pros and cons to both. For example, many "natural" foods are much higher in fat than synthetic whereas manmade foods tend to have a lot of chemicals that were never meant to be ingested. Which do you think is better for you?

Also, yes I know that fruits and vegetables tend to have pestisides and that soybeans are narturally growing plants. But I'm talking OVERALL preference.

So here goes:

Butter or margarine?

Sugar or saccharin/Nutra Sweet?

Pork sausage or soybean sausage?

Orange Juice or Tang?

Breast milk or Carnation Baby Formula?

Beef Burger or Garden/Soybean Burger?

Butter -- tastes better, real thing
Sugar -- tastes better, real thing
Pork Sausage -- tastes better, real thing
Orange Juice -- tastes better, real thing
Breast Milk -- don't remember the taste, but is this really even a debate?
Beef Burger -- tastes better, real thing

I don't care if it's artificial or not, as long as it tastes good. Big grin

In full agreement with USAIRWAYS321, I say: Go for the real thing!

Blech. Nothing artificial for me, thanks! Keeping it real is the healthy way to go.

I guess this is where I deviate from the trend.

I would eat tin foil as long as it tasted good.

I dont care if they cheese on my cheeseburger is made of plastic, as long as it makes the burger better, I couldnt care less.

If it tastes like crap, I dont care if its "all natural". All I know is that it sucks, and I want my plastic cheese  Smile
