So some how they believe 3 chicken nuggets is better than a lunch like that?
preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

Just one more example of how the government owns your children, and you just raise them.
The government just can't learn to keep its grubby hands away from things that aren't theirs, but like a toddler, the government thinks that everything in the world is its, including parents choice of how to raise kids. I said it before, and it was said before on this thread, but I'll say it again, Police State.
I know several families that don't eat any meat. They are all skinny stick people and a lot of them have multiple heath issues related to a lack of certain elements in the diet and they require a whole range of supplementary pills to keep them sustained. They get sick from eating a whole range of different foods that wouldn't affect a normal person. In conclusion, we are meat eaters, and we always have been - it's as simple as that - deal with it.
To sum up the article, the human biology is really that of a herbavore. Sure, we won't immediately kill ourselves by eating meat, and our bodies are capable of passing it through our systems. But that doesn't mean it's optimal.

Try this one:
one out of five people diagnosed with diabetes are thin or normal weight. And though heavy people with diabetes are, indeed, likely to be insulin resistant, the majority of people who are overweight will never develop diabetes.
"People who play sports break bones or get other injuries so we are not going to pay for that health care".
Is playing sports higher risk behaviour than eating a cheese burger?
It certainly can be so why pay health care for people who play sports?
As far as diabetes, i have seen people gain weight AFTER being diagnosed with diabetes so i don't know what to tell you except that there is bias in everything.
This is a major problem with universal health care and being told what you can and cannot do.
Also, another thing people never seem to consider is that diabetes (and other diseases) went undiagnosed for centuries. This does NOT mean people did not get diabetes decades or centuries ago. They didnt get it diagnose from a doctor or it just was not known about.edit on 14-2-2012 by Malcher because: (no reason given)

Sounds pretty damn nutritious to me....I would have killed for a lunch like that growing up. I was one of the poor kids who got the free school lunch. A cheese sandwich ( One slice of American cheese on stale white bread) and one of those school size cartons of skim milk.
3 chicken nuggets? I guess they decided she needed three globs of chemically treated chicken guts to go with her lunch....
