* Then Why Do People Take Them?

Jeff Eats just finished reading “16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every Day” on NaturalOn ( and I got a question for you guys:

Why do folks (and you guys know who you are) steal (cop, filch) ok-take those packets of artificial sweeteners that some South Florida restaurants still leave on their tables- when Artificial Sweeteners are #12 on its list?

Looking forward to your answers.

By the way Jeff Eats and a ton of readers are in some serious trouble here as…stuff like Microwave Popcorn (#1), Processed Meats (#4), Potato Chips (#6), Soda Pop (#8), Refined Sugar (#11) are also on Naturalon’s list.

    We are up the creek without a paddle. Imagine no soda, popcorn or potato chips.
    Personally I eat whatever I please. I’ll take my chances.

    We take them because they are there. Just that simple.

    My mother is 91 years old. She has lived in Miami Beach since 1976. She has a 2 bedroom condo. Her kitchen is a 2×4 nothing and is loaded with packets of sugar and sugar substitutes packets. She has been taking this packets forever. For some reason she thinks that one day there will be a run on them and she wants to be prepared. the crazy part of her story is that she takes sugar in her coffee.

    JEFF –
    A friend was shopping in the supermarket with his mother – In the coffee aisle they walked past a Sweet N Low display for sale in boxes – His mother says to him ‘I didn’t know they sell them”

    I got a better one for you.
    My father and mother who live in Margate always ask for more bread just before they finish eating in a restaurant. They them pack the bread up to take home.

    We take them because we don’t need them.

    I am a waiter in a very upscale hotel restaurant in Boca Raton.
    You would be absolutely amazed at how people take things. More than once I have seen people empty the entire sugar/sweet & low holder into their pocketbooks the moment they sit down.
