i was talking with a friend today, and after reminding them that i dont like sugary foods when asked why i didnt want sugar with my coffee. we got into a conversation on unhealthy foods, and we hit something that seemed like a good idea to me, anyone else think that the "obesity epidemic" will get so bad that they will have to put health restrictions on fast food restaraurants and such, ie only able to sell a certain amount to a single person within a certain amount of time. portion control on the sizes of their meals, and the ingredients used (no trans fats etc etc).
not only that but what about restrictions on how unhealthy a meal can be that is sold. or foods in general.
id say that restrictions should be put on fast food places on how unhealhty they can be, and definately a restriction on their portion sizes for people.
america is about freedom...if all the fat asses want fat foods then they should have it...do we outlaw or regulate nicotine,caffeine,alcohol,etc.... im sure everyone knows how bad the food is, all they have to do is look in the mirror, its their choice
there are places like that, but people never go to them because they dont think of them the same way. and things are regulated like caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol actually. and when you think about it, when people constantly eat fast food and all that, it doesnt just affect them, it affects everyone who is around them.
i have a feeling something will come down on the fast food industry in the next 10 years or so when 90% of the population is considered overweight or obese
I don't think anythign should be outlawed. I love how in this society no one wants to accept the blame. It is always someone elses fault. Fat fucks eat at McDonald's and then they have the never to say that McDonlads made them that way and McDonalds got them sick. It is their own fault. No one to blame but themself. Like people that sue the tobacco co. when they get cancer. Are you kidding me? People are pathetic. I say, everythign should be legal and just let the dumb asses do as they please and we can sort the bodies out. Survival of the fittest...I am all for it.
Lots of socialists on this board. Is that right? Do what's best for society, forget the individual? Fuck that.

Obesity is an epidemic in this country, it is now reaching young children. Health care costs will continue to rise because of obesity and all of it's effects, i.e. diabeties, cardiac surgeriers (clogged arteries), etc. which effects us all monetarily.
I think the FDA should step in and enforce the level of saturated fat in fast food, the biggest issue is the vegetable oil that is used to cook french fries and other fired foods. I think the FDA should require all restaurants to use saflower or canola oil for frying.
