"Lauren's Blitherings"

No BS, genuinely honest op-ed ramblings on a wide range of news articles.

You'd think each generation has a longer life-expectancy than its predecessor. . . . . . right?


Not if you keep rewarding your kids for eating slop: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/17/health/17obese.html

I think Santa Clara county's plan of banning toys from some fast food kids' meals is a wonderful excuse for politicians to meddle in our personal affairs.

Now, we just gotta get parents to to stop using the "we'll go to McDonalds if you. . ." line so kids will stop connecting that grease sensor on their tongues with the reward center in their little brains. De-Pavlov their little behinds, I say!

Oh, and I've thrown in a link that'll take you to an excerpt from the book, Fast Food Nation, just for good measure: http://www.rense.com/general7/whyy.htm
