Since the release of "Supersize Me" there has been a lot of talk about personal responsibility surrounding the foods we consume.
Personally I think that the fattening of the American and Western populace is directly attributable to the megalopoly of the American fast food industry. They say that they only provide fatty food because that is what is demanded by their customers.
Well, I think it is because of the crap they put in their food. Tasteless crap that the high dosages of fat help give flavor to.
Now, if it was me, I would be taking the fat OUT and adding jalapeños. LOTS of jalapeños.
That would help to clean out the consumer’s digestive system.
It would be a deterrent to over consumption because when their mouth is on fire, they will be less likely to reach for a second sandwich. Also they will consume less carbonated beverages because water helps to cool much better than Coke, etc.
Just think of the benefits this jalapeño enhanced diet would provide. Single-handedly the humble jalapeño could decrease hospital waiting lists, extend peoples lives, reduce the average fat-ass to waif-like proportions and give food a more flavorful edge all at the same time!
