Interesting posting and video, however there are a few things to be stated:
The problem is not the sugar, the carbs, or the companies. The problem is people. Make no mistake the clown does not stand out there with a gun,
shoving burgers into the mouths of people. They are not out there, making people take that food or eat it. The problem is people, and a failure to
take personal responsibility.
Once children would go out and run around out in the sun and wind, ride bikes, climb trees, and end up having to work off the calories that they would
take in. Now the modern toys, combined with a population of parents that are not willing to say no. And it shows, every time the government says
this is bad, people respond, yet not one of them has linked a connection to some of the illnesses that affect people, and the policies that are put
Can’t let the children get hurt, so we keep them inside, so they soon look pale and sickly. Can’t say no, so parents will buy and give them
anything that a child will want. If you go to any mall, just sit back and watch, children will cry and beg, till they get what they want, very few
parents actually stand up and say no. Children do not drive, do not work, have no means of income, yet how is it that if they want to go to a fast
food join, who takes them there? If they want say a modern toy, who gets it for them?
If we want to change the health of the nation, then it is not more regulation about what we can and can not put into the body, but changing the
policies that started this in the process. Empower parents to say no, encourage cooking at home, and change the idea on what is cool. Take out the
technologies and move a step back, and see if that makes a difference. Let children go out, get hurt and learn from their mistakes.
