like i said a big soda is probably the least of our worries. Taco Bell, Wendys, McDonalds, JAck n the Box, all of those fast food restaraunts the governent puts on the streets and they want to complain about sodas? they need to reavaluate some things and if they want to make a change as it was said before...they need to make healthier food cheaper during this money crisis and probably close down some of the fast food restaurants. its not just soda, its not just parents, its the government as well. a 32 oz soda compared to a mcdonalds cheeseburger PLEASE tell me whats worse. and maybe if those parents did not want to attend any funerals, they would limit their childs intake on these items. its responsibility as well. i have no real sympathy for a parents who enables an obese child with fatty foods and such...sorry i dont but its just how i feel. it is horrible we are experiencing this epidemic but i mean like ive BEEN saying its not just soda, theres bigger issues than that if we want to get through this "epidemic"View Thread
and that is an individuals choice, if they want to get so obese they cannot work. its up to them not the government. maybe instead of attachking "big sodas" they need to regulate whats being put into our food instead of choosing the fast, cheap, easy way out. if you put food in front of my face and im hungry, im going to eat it. so yea lets fill our streets with sode, fast food, grease, then blame "lazy americans" for the obesity epidemic. its not US its them. we are are only human. most of our food is filled with so much fatening crap, i mean as a full time working mother i know i need time with my child, work time, sleep time, time to cook....so usually im stuffing my face with crap instead of worrying about what a 32oz soda is going to do with me. this is ridiculous really. there are bigger issues, but lets all conceentrate on soda. thats the real enemy here apparentlyView Thread
soon the goverment is just going to give us little cards saying how many times we can eat fast food a week. why are they so concerned with soda intake? its not the worst thing out there. i mean after the mcdonalds were shoving into our faces, i dont think much can be worse than thatView Thread
