Far too many people in this thread blaming individual choices rather than interrogate the more useful question; which is, why is “bad food” allowed onto grocery shelves in the first place?

because adults can make their own decisions?

You’ve completely missed the point.

If there is nothing but “cheap, bad food” on grocery shelves then you can’t possibly expect every diabetic to get the “expensive, good food” to manage their condition.

You’re thinking to small. This is not an individual choice problem. The problem is that the government/grocery corporations have financial incentives from Big Agriculture and Big Sugar to continue stocking our shelves with “bad foods.”
