I always here people say that canned food, frozen and processed ones are really not very good for the body but I wonder why some people are still buying these things. I buy them too for the reason that they last longer than the normal kind of food we see at the supermarket. What's your reason why you buy these foods?

I`m not buying such things. Its better to eat natural foods. When is frozen, the food is altered ..... loss some vitamins, proteins etc. Its better to go to shopping every day to buy fresh food.

You also have a point there. With the kind of lifestyle that most people have these days and that kind of products that are available in the market, its always the best option to but the fresh ones. For me, its okay to eat canned, frozen or processed food as long as you wont eat it everday.

I did the same thin when I was still studying in college. I also eat the whole thing for the whole day. lol But its not very good, is it? WEll, for me, eating those kinds of food is not healthy cause they contain certain substances that are not good for the body. WE can eat it but not as often as we should.

I buy them because I don't have I choice, as you say it last longer. Also, sometimes this process food are right in the corner. You can buy them anywhere unlike those fresh foods you need to go to the mall or the public market to get them

Speaking of something that lasts long, well I also buy them because I am keeping an emergency kit at home and I put some canned goods in there cause they can last for a more than 2 years.

Yeah you are right that it lasts longer , it is because of the preservative ingredients. I and my family rarely eat canned goods so I don't usually buy. The processed food that sometimes present during my grocery is noodles and hotdogs. I buy these because I could easily prepare these when I am in a hurry in the morning. Live healthy!! =)

I think me and my family are not living a healthy lifestyle as we ought to be. I always have hotdogs, noodles, canned goods, and other processed food in my cart every time I shop. But I always have fruits and vegetables to cope with the lack of nutrition in those kinds of food I usually buy.

Most are quick, easy and cheap. Down here in Brazil they have yet to be accessible to the masses - a snickers for instance costs the equivalent of 1.40 USD. Not only is it more expensive but the regular/poor person makes that in a HALF hour NOT 6 minutes like in the US.

it's indeed not good for our bodies... since it's canned...a lot of additives and preservatives are with it... and more sodium content too..definitely harmful to our kidneys..but even if i'm aware of these facts... i still purchase these food because it's instant.., ready to eat and does not necessarily require longer preparation time...too convenient for people who are busy with their career or studies...tsk..tsk...

It's the easiest and no hassles. Convenience is the main reason why people like to buy these foods. They are not very nutritious but when your in a hurry and you need to go somewhere these kinds of foods will do the trick. ^^
