    Hows that for absolutes?
    How many studies have you read regarding the health effects of trans fats and/or safe dosages of literally anything in your food?

    As for people regulating their own diets, sure.. but the problem is people dont know or understand what the big food companies put in the food, hence we need regulation to protect the population. If it was not for these regulations then all sorts of chemicals that make food "cheaper" but dangerous would be in our food, and we would not know anything about till the day we are in the emergency room and glowing in the dark.
    I'm going to agree with you once in my life, except the glow in the dark part.

    Until such time as they amended it...yes. The Constitution is the highest law in the US. It should be followed to a T.

    Too bad, but it's Constitutional.
    You need to learn what the general welfare clause is about. Its about taxes. Not peoples health.

    I have no problem with this. Americans are too fat. If it's gonna take a nanny state to whip us in to shape, so be it.

    What really breaks my heart is looking at all the fat kids today. So many of today's kids are just..... chunky. I don't know if you blame the parents or the culture, but something's got to give.

    We really need to put more of a premium on our health in this country. If it takes an FDA ban to get the ball rolling, so be it.

    Well, what can I say. We're all responsible for our own diets today, and most Americans are fat. How's that working out?

    It's called freedom. We could end crime too if government made half the people cops and stationed them in the other half's living room.

    I hear ya. My beliefs and ideals agree with you - I hate nanny states and I believe in personal freedom. But my eyes and ears say you're wrong - the country is full of fat asses.

    You want people to be able to take care of themselves, but some people will literally eat themselves to death because they can't tolerate the mild discomfort of being a little bit hungry, and they can't be bothered to do any physical exercise.

    What are you gonna do about people like that?
