When is Life worth Living?
Yes, as Chelone says. there is more to life than food. But if the main enjoyment in life is the pleasure of eating yummy food, what kind of life is left if that pleasure is taked away? I can tell you from the viewpoint of myself and other elderly friends, mere life with is not worth much. There has to be more. Very few of the elderly will get obese with snacks and junk food. To the contrary, many will need high calorie suppliments just to maintain weight.
