Fat Schmat

Good grief--could the fat police stop walking the beat and just leave the rest of us alone--please? It's no body's business (or fault) if I choose to add cream to my coffee, or eat fried chicken. Do not bring a lawsuit in the name of protecting me from fast food companies. I can protect myself--if I so choose. Besides, if I had a nickel for every time the experts change their minds about what's good for us (eggs. butter, coffee, alcohol--even tobacco used to be "good for you", and someday, somebody will probably say so again), I could afford my own lawsuits. I'd start by suing all the people driving up the price of things I want to buy with ridiculous, frivolous litigation!!


  1. Very interesting. I find it ridiculous that head mucky-mucks within an organization like CSPI can't even bring themselves to acknowledge the value of moderation in one's diet. They're radicals who seem to claim they have ALL the answers, despite their positions changing frequently due to "new research". My guess is that they probably get federal money too--AARRRGGGGHH!

  2. Wow! I didn't know that about alcohol studies...woo hoo! Drag out the margarita mix.

    Title for Kat's next article: "Moderation, schmoderation."

    Just kidding, I mean, I knew that in the Bible Paul recommended a drink a day (for Timothy at any rate). But how could scientific studies find themselves in agreement with the Bible? Isn't there some kind of law against that?
