Since I'm a native of Louisiana, I'll use POPEYES chicken as an example of what you are paying for and unknowingly choosing to put into your body.
I'm not sure why the ingredients need to contain every artificial food color under the sun, plus MSG, but there's no need to wonder why Americans suffer from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc., when their food supply contains these synthetic ingredients. Our bodies can't handle it!
"Experts" say, "Take out the fat, cut out the sugar, avoid gluten...." How about take out toxic and fake ingredients from your diet to not overburden your liver and the rest of your body? The liver is responsible for handling blood sugar, manufacturing hormones, and ridding the body of toxins, and if it's constantly trying to understand what it is you just ingested, your body cannot possibly function correctly.
The sad truth is that food-like products containing anything but nutrients are killing us. Lab-made chemicals are contributing to all of the food allergies and diseases we see today that never existed before the genesis of fake ingredients. The food industry has sadly become more interested in a paycheck than in our health.
Want to protect yourself? CHECK THE INGREDIENTS LABEL if you want a chance at regenerating your body, and stick to eating real, nutrient-dense and healing foods.
