Well, CyberMage, please forgive me, but - DUH!
You can not "speak on what forces have made this so"? It's called A-D-V-E-R-T-I-S-I-N-G, my friend. It's the reason why parents feed their children sugar coated refined "half-grains" for breakfast, it's the reason why they take their lil tykes to see PG-13 movies without apparently noticing the "13", and the reason why I personally know people who ACTUALLY GIVE THEIR KIDS 'TANG' on purpose, "for the viatamin C". I'm sure you can think of more examples.
People grow up in our culture which says 'buy more, buy this brand, do it now'! But, come on, I'm sure you already know this. People eat that crap because it's all they've ever known and their taste buds are trained to. They just don't know any better, and belittling them isn't going to make them listen, they have to figure it out for themselves. Some poeple never do. I mean, as my friend who feeds her kids Trix says, "but it's part of this complete breakfast! (and it didn't hurt me....)" "Hmmph", I say, "Not yet."
