    What about just plain old poison? Can Pepsi put lethal doses of rat poison in the can, and list it on the inredients on the back of the can?
    Most of what we eat is potentially a poison, in the right quantities....

    BTW, who else here thinks Pepsi tastes like poorly cooked asparagus?

    IMO, that's what Dr. Kevorkian is for. If it were me, anyway. And that is in no way attempting to belittle or disrespect your situation. That's just how I personally feel about it.

    The government already heavily regulates your food. Is your free will gone? You've lost the right to buy chicken loaded with salmonella I guess.

    That's exactly one of those battles. Interstate regulation isn't.

    If you want to talk about an NHS, you should spend more time arguing against something like Roe v. Wade, a decision that involved the federal governemnt usurping the State's control over intrastate regulations of medical procedures.

    That's one of the things that opened the door to a Nationalized healthcare system.

    I'ts not the government's job to regulate salt content in food.

    Just in case you didn't know this, when the Constitution was ratified, foods where heavily salted for preservation. The Founders were well aware of this and made no effort to mention salt in the Constitution.

    People who don't like crappy unhealthy processed foods don't have to eat them.

    Can't get simpler than that.

    Why do weinies think the big machine gun of the federal government is the answer to all their little irrelevant complaints in life?

    Sure, because regulating salt wasn't mentioned in the Constitution, it's unconstitutional to do so. Antonin Scalia would be so proud of your pointed legal logic.
