Report says school food making kids unfit to serve


news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON – Too fat to fight? Many American children are so overweight from being fed french fries, pizza and other unhealthy foods at school lunchrooms that they cannot handle the physical rigors of being in the military, a group of retired officers say in a new report.

National security is threatened by the sharp rise in obesity rates for young people over the last 15 years, the group Mission: Readiness contends. Weight problems are now the leading medical reason that recruits are rejected, the group says, and thus jeopardize the military's ability to fill its ranks.

what now? the milatary is worried that there arent enough physichally fit kids to brainwash? maybe this is not such a bad thing after all
alright obesity!

but seriously obesity is a terrible thing and leads to many health problems

so the schools already serve slop to their students, but now that slop isnt good enough? school lunch is as awful as food gets unless you go to some private school, good for you.

but seriously there isnt anything in the world thats happening that is more important than this? arent we fighting a war? isnt american idol doing something important(sarcasm screw american idol) and arent there governmental/political changes going on that need our attention?

maybe the military will start funding fat camps lol

Second line.

Bad food leads to bad production because of low energy output. Which means less sleep during the times of the day when energy is needed and more energy output during times when the body is preparing itself to rest. Which decreases the metabolism and causes people to eat more. Basic knowledge there when will people get things straight. Once the mental ability to resist unhealthy eating habits dies the body suffers. And when the body suffers with the lack from the lack of nutrition the mind also fails to focus.

Well if we need them in an emergency, like a Third World War in 10-15 years, they won't be much use.

Plus they drive up healthcare costs and make poor laborers.


For those who think there won't be a war. We can't make it a century without one. Look at world history from the 1700s to the present. We just can't do it. We are about due for another one. We will not make it to 2045 without one.

It makes me SICK how government sees OUR children as cattle to be used.

aka: CANNONFODDER

Just DISGUSTING that we are having all the problems we are having, and their only fear is not having enough CANNONFODDER for their for-profit wars.

This is a new low.

food might lead to "fattieness" but so does steroids when you dont do Physical exercises

Having a government eyeballing kids as only expendable
objects, is incentive enough to rid that government, and
keep our kids.
Others however are thinking twice now before having kids
in these days, and I don't blame the the least bit.

Best reason I've ever heard to eat them.



screw american idol


I know it's popular around here to bash the slovenly unwashed masses who zone out in front of a television every day, have no interest in world affairs, and know exactly what Paris Hilton did yesterday but can't locate Paris, France on a map.

But at least they're not killing people.

This is more than just been "fit" for the military" this about our children to become targets of big pharma for life at a younger age.

I have come to the conclusion that Obesity in America is more of food resources available to the consumer than just the old rhetoric of "eating too much".

Is about what our food supplies are doing to us, the tampering, the GMO, the lack of minerals in our soils and the processing practices of our suppliers.

The target is children from low income families and welfare recipients.
