The processed food fad is more than a fad. Yet, I wonder if we will end up not having fast food as we see it now but artificial food such as that created for astronauts.

What did we really need all those teeth for anyway?
Maybe taste will cease to matter. Great for people who want to change their diet, avoid foods they crave.
We have less farm land to grow/ produce food and yet more people who want to eat it? What will people be eating in the future? There are all sorts of speculations about that.

Three days without real food? Outrageous! What do they think he is? An animal?
