Thread #5: Is Food Still Food?

In the 1973 movie Soylent Green, Charlton Heston asks Edward G Robinson, “Why don’t you eat something?”

Robinson replies, “I’m not hungry enough yet. Tasteless. Odorless crud. You don’t know any better. You know, when I was a kid…food was food.”

Is food still food? What do you think?
