    Yes, because Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg sometimes get tired of eating Wagyu ribeye steaks, White Pearl albino caviar, white truffles and matsutake mushrooms and, goshdarnit, they get a sudden craving for a Big Mac or a Taco Bell gordita.

    One in three Americans eat fast food daily – but one myth is debunked
    CBS News, Oct 3 2018 12:01 PM

    Americans' love affair with fast food continues, with one in every three adults chowing down on the fare on any given day. That's the finding from a new report from the US Centers For Disease Control & Prevention. When asked by researchers, 37% of adults said they'd eaten fast food at least once over the past 24 hours. There was one surprise: Bucking the notion that poorer Americans favor fast food the most, the report found that intake actually rose with income. While about 32% of lower-income folks ate fast food daily, more than 36% of middle-income consumers had fast food on a given day, as did 42% of those with higher incomes.

    Another member of the nothing-is-ever-my-fault generation has filed a lawsuit. If this teenager had spilled hot water on herself at home, would she have sued her parents?

    As a growing number of Americans are shunning processed foods and preservatives and eating more fruit, vegetables and grains, many food companies are trying to sell off their junk-food brands and increase production of healthful foods. Do they really care about Americans' health? No -- they just want to produce foods that will bring them the most profit. (There's my cynicism again.)
