Outlawing not the point

I'd like to see manufacturer's start to take responsibility for the foods they create. I love Oreos. I really do. I also have a cholesterol level equivalent to that found in grizzly bears. So, I avoid Oreos and such.

Why can't they make more foods that are delicious AND less likely to kill us? Tasty foods can be made that are less dangerous than many of the foods we have to choose from now. Food kills more people than most of the other things we scream and yell about. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity are all traced to eating things that are unhealthy. I don't think we need to legislate it, but it does seem very strange to me. Walk into a grocery store or watch a few commercials. We are indundated with advertising for stuff that is basically designed to kill us slowly enough for the manufacturer to get rich first. Even more odd is the fact that much of it has misleading packaging that indicates that it is HEALTHY!

Take juice. Drinking juice is usually frowned on by nutritionists because most juices are basically fancy sugar. Empty calories. Sugars in juice cause obesity in kids (as does lack of exercise since it is no longer safe to make them go out and play all day!), sugary liquids contribute to obesity in adults and diabetes and heart disease and all of that. But the box yells "Full Day Supply of Vitamin C!" like it is going to save us from scurvy. Seems backwards to me. I don't think we all need to be eating carrots and tofu all the time. But it would be nice if we had more variety in healthy snack foods and more truth in labeling.

Once in a while

Unfortunately, few take the words "in moderation" seriously. Most people could get away with eating a dozen Oreos..once in a great while. It's the daily ingestion of Oreo's that are going to GETCHA.

For me it's easy, I blame it all on the genes...mine are all recessive from my Mom and Dad...so I blame them!

PS: To all on the forum, please send me all your uneaten, unwanted Oreos...they're delicious with Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey!!!! And I promise to only eat them "once in a while.":p (While is in about 10 minutes.)

>>in moderation

To me, that means only eating one "row" of Oreos ... at one sitting.

I do agree truth in labeling is a necessity. My objection is to being then told I am too stupid to make my own decision so "THEY" will protect me by removing my access to the product.
As for those products labeled "Healthy" I realized I always read the label with a serious doubt in my mind. I think this stems from noticing among other things the calorie count on a "low fat" yogert was tied to servings not total contents of the cup and one small cup held 3 servings.Thats about 3 heaping tablespoons per serving.
If you follow the Big Brother is going to protect your health for you to an admitted extreme you will be issued a Medical Card to be presented at the grocery check out detailing what you are allowed to buy, based on your state of health and weight.
But enough on the tirade this morning, it is beautiful today, and I am out in the country, planning to work a short while then GoFish all afternoon. :reyes

>>maple cookies

No, Jean, just can't get them where I live!

I have one package of Maple cookies left in the freezer ... and I'm testing my ability to resist temptation (I don't have a very good track record when it comes to resisting cookies!)

I go down to the freezer, open the door, look at the package (maybe even sniff it) and then put it back in the freezer.

I have to make it last!

So Charles as I understand it you are trusting your dinner plans to my luck in catching said dinner?
Generally when I seriously want fish for dinner I head to Bastrop to MiMi G's Steak and Stein, for their friday nite catfish. Best I have had in years.
I think the fish can read my mind, if I go planning on dinner they all hide in the corner and ignore me. If I am just playing and don't plan to take them home to dinner they fight over which one gets to bite first. I have tried fooling them by thinking happy thoughts, but it just doesn't seem to work. I have tried bringing my son , a vegetarian, along for mental cover, but he won't go. Maybe if I cover my bald head with aluminum foil it will block the signals. If nothing else that would guarante me lots of elbow room on the dock.

my .02 on this

Well this is one of my real gripes. I agree with some of the other people need to take personal responsibility for their actions and can this law suit and passing laws for this and that.

What really gets me is how stupid people really are. They think if they read, hear, or see it on tv that it is true. Well got news for you most of that information is marketing, or the result of lobbying by a special intrests group usually the manufacturer of what ever.

Lets take milk I only drink the real thing, I think kids should too. Well they don't and as a result you have a bunch of kids today that have ADD and other stuff we never had when we were kids. I by the way can cure ADD in a NY min.

Cream in coffee I have the real stuff and it is better period. I also never use decaf coffee do you know what they do to get 3% of the caf. out?

Butter again I only use the real thing better for you than that fake stuff. Ever seen a real chef use anything but butter to cook with? Well I walked out of a resturant over this two days ago.

Real surgar you guessed it I use real sugar also better for you. That pink and blue stuff was pulled from the market at one time known to cause cancer. How did it get back on the market you guessed it they paid congress off and got the law changed.

Ok one more and I will shut up. Cookies why not just bake some real cooking at home for the kids. They will be much better and the kids will love you for it.

Well that's it I only use real butter, real milk, real cream, real eggs, real sugar. I weight about 135 and have not problems to date at 50.
