What should life be like? I want to see the difference between the past and the present.(6)

I think we need to go back to the basics of what foods are good for us to consume and reevaluate our diets. Of course, technological innovation has undoubtedly been good for the advancement of many women in society, but I think we need to live our lives with an awareness of the important perspective of maintaining health.

『(In the past) We went shopping at the store by the evening of the same day, buy what we wanted, and eat fresh food. There were many times when the food was sold out or the food we were looking for was not available. Refrigerators were finally coming on the scene, but the idea of storing food in the freezer was almost unheard of at that time. For this reason, there was little use of chemicals such as preservatives as well as frozen foods. In other words, if new food was not eaten immediately, it would spoil.
(Today) Every home is equipped with a refrigerator, and there are many frozen foods available. Many food additives such as preservatives are also used, so we are now in an age where we can live without buying fresh food, as long as we have preserved foods. It can be said that technological innovation has created a diversification of life and changed lifestyles in an enriching way. This has undoubtedly been especially good for the advancement of many women in society. However, on the other hand, people often eat food that is not necessarily fresh and contains a lot of chemicals. Looking at it from another perspective, this could be said to be a major detriment to maintaining health. However, although the average life expectancy has increased thanks to advances in medicine, it may be necessary to calmly consider whether this is really the right thing to do. Advances in science and technology have made it possible to eat foods that are not necessarily fresh, and as a result, it seems that we have ended up consuming a lot of foods that are not necessarily good for our health, but in times of food shortages, such technology may be indispensable.

I think we need to go back to the basics of what kind of ingredients we consume and rethink our diets. I would like to suggest that we need to think again about how we should live our lives while taking advantage of technological innovations.
