    I agree totally. My point stems from the belief that disability is going to be heavily involved in Americas obesity issue. So much in fact, American tax payers are going to foot the bill for the poor eating habits (and high sales revenue of the suppliers) of its citizens.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Can you trust the quality of what is added to foods for the sake of profit/money for companies or people in the food business?

    Here's an example. I remember we used to use a chemical called "shrimp dip", After catching the shrimp we would dip them into this solution in order to preserve them from spoiling on long trips.

    There was a law against using it at the time but that did not stop a lot of fishermen from using it. It always had the awful smell of ammonia to it. If you knew it was there you could really tell by tasting the shrimp. Unfortunately very few people know what a fresh shrimp tastes like.

    Living in times of terrorism I like the gov keeping a close eye on our food supply for security's sake.

    Sooo... limiting the amount of salt a private company can put in products sold to private citizens who are fully aware of the sodium content of said products and who can freely choose to buy said products or not is... a national security issue?

    Due to the overwhelming level of awareness on the part of the American consumer, obesity has become an epidemic.

    Congrats!

    Indirectly, it could lead to the security of our nation's health.

    ""Eating too much salt can lead to hypertension, or high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart disease, kidney failure, and stroke. One in three US adults - nearly 75 million people 20 or older -suffer from hypertension...Lowering daily sodium intake to 1500 milligrams would prevent more than 100, 000 deaths per year and save billions in medical costs." (article from Virginia Pilot newspaper 4/21/10)

    As a fiscal conservative when it comes to this matter I am all for it.

    Yes. They have the necessary information and make their own choices accordingly.

    Due to the overwhelming level of awareness on the part of the American consumer, obesity has become an epidemic.

    Congrats!
    Yes, people make decisions all the time that are bad for their health. And?

    As a fiscal conservative, I see no reason I should be paying for anyone elses healthcare regardless.
