They used to have peanut coated doughnuts in the bakeries. man I loved those things!! I have not seen on in a long time! They don't seem to make them anymore since so many became allergic to the peanuts.
I have to wonder...
Just what was it that suddenly made so many people allergic to peanuts that companies had to stop using them to make things like peanut doughnuts and schools to ban them???

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US with around 596,577 deaths each year.
Coronary heart disease costs the US $108.9 billion each year and is the most common type of heart disease.3
Heart disease is a term used to describe several problems related to plaque buildup in the walls of the arteries.
As the plaque builds up, the arteries narrow, making it more difficult for blood to flow and creating a risk for heart attack or stroke.4

In Canada, we pay for our health care through taxes. Therefore, when someone gets sick from smoking, we ALL pay.
A man hooked up to a respirator because he has emphazima as a direct result of smoking costs tax payers a fortune. So does cancer treatments, etc.
And no, the tax revenue from cigarette sales comes no where near covering your bad habits strain on our health care system.
I don't make you pay for my habits, don't make me pay for yours.
