We all know that chronic alcoholism can kill you, so bars and restaurants by law can’t serve drunks and must cut off service when you become one. The alcohol industry cannot produce drinks with an alcohol content above a certain level because it is deleterious to the health of the consumer.
So why when this generation of children are the first that will live shorter lives than their parents because of morbid obesity and food related diseases, are we not imposing similar restrictions on the fast food industry?
An adult male say should consume unless he’s a pro athlete about 2,000-2200 calories max and about 40 grams of fat.
Pizza Hut worldwide has just released THE CHEESE BURGER PIZZA. It is a clock face style pie base made up of 12 small circles of dough. Each circle has a complete double beef pattie with bacon cheese burger as the base then on top of that you have your usual pizza toppings. This pie contains 1,800 calories and 200gms of fat per slice. Where the average slice is 3-600 calories and who has just one slice of pizza? So have a second slice and you have had 2 days of calories and weeks worth of fat in a snack!
Last year Burger King bought out THE PIZZA BURGER. It has 6,800 calories in just the burger and 125 gms of fat, but again who just orders a burger? You normally get a drink and fries. With the burger, fries and shake combo this tops out the cardiac hit parade at 8,600 calories and 225 gms of fat! It’s a heart attack waiting to happen.
And if you think you’re being good with Micky D’S salads they contain over 1,200 calories and 80 gms of fat.
The McHappy meals for toddlers are 700 calories and most of them are given as snacks not a main meal so giving this to a child between meals is like feeding them four full meals a day!
We have 200lb 8yr olds. Children suffering adult cardiac illnesses formerly only seen in over 40, over weight, over eating adults. We have seven year olds getting their periods and growing breasts because they eat so much fast food chicken pumped full of growth hormone. Like the chicken they eat they are developing at a rate of 3 times the normal.
If we know alcohol in excess kills, so we make laws to control it why not the same for food?
I know I’ll get flamed for this, and to that I reply take that energy and exercise and feed your kids better. If anyone thinks the food above is on any planet good for them or their children they are insane and shouldn’t be caring for a cocker spaniel let alone a child.
