Perhaps you've seen this headline: "Fat Kids Should Be Taken From Their Parents - Harvard Expert Says!"
There's a tragic irony in this whole obesity "epidemic": THE GOVERNMENT TOLD US TO EAT THE WRONG STUFF!
It turns out, by the time it hits the bloodstream, a bagel equals a can of Coke. In other words, the government has been telling parents for years to feed their kids 6-11 servings of Coke a day! (Plus the carbs in the other categories.) And now experts want the government to punish the parents? For what? Following orders?
I think fat kids should file a class action suit. Where is the new Dickie Scruggs?
