yes no of course but not all of it... complicated, that said:
Driving force for lots of process food is the promise of "Low calorie, low fat, low sodium, no work, just heat it up and be healthy"
it is so multi-faceted but with equal weight that it is best to spread the blame out equally.
I'm not dissagreeing with you, but the push for avoiding red meat, avoiding fat and salt and cholesterol are all horribly misquided reccomendations, and can't be ignored by the processed food issue.
