    NYC Asks Food Manufacturers To Cut Salt Content - wcbstv.com

    New Jersey 101.5 FM - NJ Fires Another Salvo in the War on Obesity

    I found both these articles interesting in light of our recent discussion on smoking bans. Are we headed toward a total nanny state where the govt. tells us what we can eat?

    "My body, my choice" or "Your health, social problem"?

    That's right...your body, your choice.

    This information would allow you to make a decision as to what you want to consume.

    Unless you let a man impregnate you, then it's NOT your choice. You are obligated to spend $200,000 to raise a child.

    Xotoxi - then you would agree with me that young girls should be completely informed about an abortion procedure? Wouldn't a video be helpful in the interest of "informed consent"?

    From allowing people to actually have some idea what they're paying for and eating to abortion? Talk about thread drift! :lol:

    First of all, abortion has nothing to do with food.

    Secondly, if a video of ANY surgical procedure was shown as part of "informed consent", no surgery would ever be performed.

    Have you ever seen a knee replacement?

    Why, so you can impose YOUR beliefs onto her? Hey, maybe if you inform her about birth control and safe sex she will never have to make that decision...

    They show videos of birth including C-sections in school. So I take that as a "no". Hamburgers - serious decision Abortion - no biggie

    Back to topic - I have not eaten a Cinnabon since I found out the calories. I'm sure I'm not alone. This new law will destroy some of these chains. Some people may think that is in the greater good. I don't. On account of the recession and all.

    This is just a small step in controlling our food supply in the near future. Heads up people.

    SO...you want to control a young girl by having her watch a gruesome video to lay enough guilt on her to conform to YOUR beliefs then why not make everyone watch a video of the damage to arteries and your heart caused by Cinnabons?

    Do you really think that the new law will destroy these chains?

    Do you really think that these people are going to change what they eat?

    Then again...maybe they should.
