Jetzt hat er wieder geschrieben. Diesmal über das Haben oder Nicht-Haben eines Bosses und ob das von der Natur tatsächlich so gemeint war. Sehr lesenswert – auch die nachfolgenden Diskussion. Was mich aber bewogen hat, den Artikel hier zu erwähnen, soll dieses Zitat von Paul Graham belegen:
Humans were not designed to eat white flour, refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated vegetable oil. And yet if you analyzed the contents of the average grocery store you’d probably find these four ingredients accounted for most of the calories. “Normal” food is terribly bad for you. The only people who eat what humans were actually designed to eat are a few Birkenstock-wearing weirdos in Berkeley.
If “normal” food is so bad for us, why is it so common? There are two main reasons. One is that it has more immediate appeal. You may feel lousy an hour after eating that pizza, but eating the first couple bites feels great. The other is economies of scale. Producing junk food scales; producing fresh vegetables doesn’t. Which means (a) junk food can be very cheap, and (b) it’s worth spending a lot to market it.
If people have to choose between something that’s cheap, heavily marketed, and appealing in the short term, and something that’s expensive, obscure, and appealing in the long term, which do you think most will choose?
Hmm, da hat er wohl recht. Hier der ganze Artikel. Gut wenn man sein eigener Boss ist und zumindest bestimmen kann, was man ißt.
