72 Kraft, the maker of Oscar Mayer deli meats, Jell-O, Maxwell House coffee, and Velveeta cheese also recently shook up top management and reported sluggish sales. Big Food company, Kellogg's, has seen its sales plunge 5.4 percent over the past year. Campbell's Soup CEO has said: "There's a mounting distrust of so-called Big Food, the large food companies and legacy brands on which millions of consumers have relied on for so long." Do Americans finally realize what Yale medical researchers David Katz and Samuel Meller declared in a paper in 2013, that a "diet of minimally processed or Yevo unprocessed foods close to nature, predominantly plants, is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention." Eating minimally processed foods was even found to be more important than whether you are vegan or vegetarian, eat a paleo diet, or take part in any other specific diet like the 'Mediterranean diet.' Even eating meat, according to Katz and Meller, is O.K. as long as: ". . . animal foods are themselves the products, directly or ultimately, of pure plant foods—the composition of animal flesh and milk is as much influenced by diet as we are."
Fast food restaurant chain McDonalds is facing renewed legal action in the US over claims that the its food was responsible for health problems among a group of obese American children. The original complaint was thrown out last month, but US district judge Robert Sweet left the door open for further litigation. His ruling pointed out the possibility of a case to prove that additives in fast food meant there were risks in eating it that consumers were not aware of. The original case was brought on behalf of a group of overweight teenagers in the Bronx district of New York.

It alleges that McDonalds promoted its Chicken McNuggets, fish and chicken sandwiches, fries and hamburgers as being healthy when researchers, and even the company's own nutritional division in France, warned otherwise. Furthermore, it says that researchers have warned that some of these foods should not be consumed more than once a week or consumers could suffer problems such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. McDonalds has dismissed the case as "senseless" and "absurd". The National Council of Chain Restaurants (NCCR) has also condemned the new lawsuit as "ridiculous", saying it attacked "common and everyday foods and ingredients" approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, the industry's safety regulator. But the decision to renew the lawsuit is an uncomfortable development for the food industry, which fears it could become the next focus for the fee-hungry legal profession. ..314
