Congradulations, California.  Our potato chips (crisps) and french fries (chips) will now have a shiny warning label.  Apparently they cause cancer.

I hope we did our research this time.  Something tells me we didn't.  You know, we are scaring people to the point that they won't eat anymore.

At the risk of sounding... I guess the best word to use in reference to myself is "stupid", please explain?

OK. The Pro-Ana movement is pretty disturbing. Its a network of young women who are pro-anorexia. They reckon its a lifestyle, a choice. Its actually a horrific way to live and an even more horrific way to die, IMHO, but there.

What I meant was that continual scare stories about food make their hectoring about the evils of food seem somewhat reasonable.

Ahh, gotcha.

Just wait. One of these days we'll get our nutrition from pills and pills alone. But not soon, I hope, because I really enjoy eating.
