People with health concerns like diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease see images of red lights flashing before them- Stop! However, to most food lovers and people without diet restrictions, crispy golden-brown food fried to perfection is a heavenly delight. Whether one is biting into deep-fried chicken or crunchy bacon, one feels compelled to ignore the warnings about calories and clogged arteries.

After all, fried foods tend to be more inviting and therefore more pleasing to the palate. Isn’t there some truth to the belief that we eat with our eyes? People are more likely to try food that is attractive than food that is unappealing even if the latter is less tasty. Of course, they may never experience the taste because they judge the food by its appearance.

In the Garden of Eden Eve allowed her mouth to succumb to the lust of her eye after she ate the forbidden fruit. Not only did she eat the fruit, but her husband Adam also ate although they both knew the consequences of their action. We too are descendants of  Adam and Eve and heirs of their rebellious nature. We see the increasing obesity in adults and children, and the damage that a high-fat diet is wreaking on our bodies but like our ancestors, we are not deterred. This is why most Americans, although aware of the negative effects of over consuming too much fat in their diets, continue to pack fast food restaurants and joints.

We also live in a fast-paced society and want things done in a jiffy. For the fast food addict, it’s easier to sacrifice one’s health than one’s time. Therefore, the quick method of frying saves them from waiting restlessly at a restaurant before they bite into delicious fare. Which chef wouldn’t whip out the frying basket to keep them coming back for more?
