Is Beyonce Really Helping The Hungry Or Herself?
Not that I'm complaining, but I don't get many "celebrity" press releases for Hypebot. So an email subject line that shouted "BEYONCE PHOTO FROM FEEDING AMERICA PRESS CONFERENCE" caught my eye.
Beyonce is using her well earned fame to help feed the homeless. Along with General Mills’ Hamburger Helper and non-profit Feeding America more than 3.5 million meals will be delivered to local food banks through the Show Your Helping Hand campaign.The only problem is that sponsor Hamburger Helper is exactly the kind of food poorer American's should not be eating. In fact, it could be killing them.
The number one ingrediant iI Hamburger Helper is bleached duram flower that has has all the nutitional value milled out of it to increase self life. A bit further down the list past some ingrediants one can't find in any dictionary is hydrogenated soybean oil. Partially hydrogenated soybean oil is proven to clog your arteries and cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both women and men. 80% of it preventable, but not if you eat enough Hamburger Helper.
A little further down is corn syrup; as in sugar. Why a sweetener io Hamburger Helper? Sugar keeps you craving food, which keeps you buying more. Ask MacDonals who even adds it to their french fries. The point is that Hamburger Helper has virtually no nutritional value not to mention 13 to 17 grams of fat per serving.
