maybe a better way to do that would be to somehow make the good foods less expensive? I mean, if the healthy foods cost too much that people are
willing to poison themselves with crap, maybe that healthy food is just too expensive.. tax the crap out of the crap, and well, you will end up with
a bunch of more unhealthy starving people??
and I don't buy the idea that diet sodas are healthier for ya than the non-diet. not when my kid's pediatrician warned me back in the early 80's
not to use the aspertame! if the tax the non-diet sodas they will be driving the poor to that poison!
na, there are better ways to get people eating healthy foods....the first step they should take is to look at where all their farm subsidies are
going. beef, corn (for the corn syrup that is thrown into everything now days...which really too much of that isn't too good for ya either),

steak house in the city has me picking through my food wondering what is in it every time!!!
besides, it was the health professionals that conned us into giving up our "healthy food" decades ago!!! that good ole fashioned bacon, eggs, and
toast breakfast has too much chlorestoral in it, better to trade it for this highly enriched with corn syrup breakfast cereal instead!!!
the lard we used wasn't good, better to replace it with this nice corn oil!!!
add to that the fact that we are all working our butts off to pay our nice government their taxes, we don't have time anymore to cook the really
healthy foods.....so, well, here, enjoy this nice premade frozen dinner, again, god only knows what's been added....for you enjoyment!
na, leave my eating habits alone please. if left to decide for myself, I can keep my weight ateady, around 120 - 130.....if I try to follow the
"professionals" advice (which I did when I was preganant.....) I will end up somewhere around 200 lbs.... which I did when I was following their
