Food processing industry takes a toll on country's health

Eating at home isn’t the in thing anymore. Hanging out is hip, especially in the mushrooming fast food joints that blister the skylines of India’s cities. The urban middle classes with money to burn are redefining nouvelle cuisine. The costs are huge but few are counting the calories fewer still checking the nutrition chart. Eating isn’t a health choice anymore it’s a lifestyle choice. And if there are any complaints, they sure aren’t coming from the food-processing industry.
