Marijuana is legal but a Big Mac is banned? LOL

From the article:
'...the motive behind the proposal was consumer health, and the change could prevent "20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year."

I guess the alternative is that one should have their 'freedom'..

to die from heart attacks and diabetes..?

the funny thing is the tea party is against it. becuase they are really a front for be corporations. lower taxes lower controls. they want to go back to the days when you could put anything you want in food to make money even if it kills someone. thats why we have regulations people used to die fron harmfulls things in food, at a lot higher rate. deregulation means no protection from unlimited capitalisim. without laws all you can do is sue . but since tort reform you cant even do that very good anymore.

Actually, most of the products you buy have already deleted the transfats, and restaurants are displaying the content.
Why is the government making these choices for us.
Oh yeah, because they are our healthcare provider.
How far we've come.
