Do you research your food?

Why do we research everything we want to buy, except food?

It really gets to me that most Americans will do all sorts of research when looking to buy new things.  For example: cars, health insurance, appliances, an electrician, a plumber, a new house, you get the idea.  They will do test drives, read reviews, call references and ask questions, lots of questions.  Here is my question.  Why don't most Americans research food?  Food, the one thing that is essential for nourishing and healing our bodies, most Americans don't do any research.  They don’t ask questions or investigate what it is that they are consuming?  Why have we become so dependent on the food companies to tell us what is 'healthy',  what is good to eat, or more frequently what we are supposed to eat?
