I’m certainly not advocating a Cheese Whiz diet here and hope only to provide some balance to the conversation about processed vs. whole foods.

A recent Wired article even called it “the world’s most unnatural food.” Author Patrick Di Justo attempted to horrify and disgust us by describing its ingredients as waste products being dumped on unsuspecting customers!
