A NY Times article headline reads “Warnings Don’t Deter Lovers of Sushi”. (This is in response to yesterday’s number-one-most-emailed NY Times article about how tuna sushi contains unsafe levels of mercury.)
When low-class food, such as McDonalds, is alleged to be unhealthy, the upper class condemn it, and celebrate movies (such as Super Size Me) that demonize it. But when upper-class food is found to be unhealthy, the same people ignore the warnings. The anti-McDonald’s crusade is mostly about rich people feeling smug about their superior upper-class tastes in food.
