Today is the day the weekly fliers come in for the local stores, so I took a look. Rite-Aid usually sends one, and this week was no exception. The first item I notice for sale? Soda. Chips were another choice item.
Now don't get me wrong, I love soda, though I make sure my sodas are free of high fructose corn syrup, but I have no illusions that even those are healthy for me. They are a treat, and that's that. And I won't deny that I've bought chips from a pharmacy before, as a quick snack when starving. But again, I know damn well they are not health food.
Why do pharmacies sell "food" in the first place? All of it is junky, heavily processed crap that will certainly send those who eat that often to the doctor for RXs for cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.
Maybe that's the point. Sigh.
