One of the most annoying/enjoyable parts about being human is that you have to/get to eat and drink stuff.
Personally, I wish we were like robots and never had to waste our time meal-prepping or going out to eat and just doing all sorts of other things that don't involve masticating and worry about what I'm putting inside my body. But I can't think about that too much or my head will explode. I'm stuck being a human and all of the trappings that come alone with it.
Since your diet has a huge impact on your overall health, then it makes sense that a lot of governments are making sure that food companies aren't cutting corners and putting out harmful products that are ultimately going to give its citizens a bunch of nasty diseases in the name of short-term profits. It's a big reason the FDA was founded in America back in the day - because people were being sold nasty meat and milk. It wasn't a pretty time for our nation.
