In this comic strip, it exemplifies how people perceive food and choose what they want to eat based on advertisements and celebrity endorsements. However, certain products may not be purchased by everyone due to socioeconomic differences. Therefore, people in lower socioeconomic statuses must buy cheaper, mass produced, chemical-reliant products. This in turn, can affect human health and cause environmental degradation.
OMG Mom, we want that organic soy ice cream we saw on TV!
The girls always want to try new foods and set trends so other people eat those foods too.
Good thing we're so rich and famous and can afford healthy, organic foods
