Well, I didn't know that. That's quite interesting.

Also, Iron Horse, whatever else may be said about his threads and points of view, has a point about the low fat milk thing he keeps on about. Semi-skimmed milk is fucking horrible, frankly. It tastes like water with chemicals injected in it and goes off a in few days. It even goes off before the use by date. Proper milk on the other hand is both delicious and nutritious and keeps for a good ten days or so. Full fat milk is still available in Ireland, fortunately.

When I was young there were adverts with the slogan "Healthy kids drink litres, not pints of milk" whereas now milk is apparently a very very bad thing indeed and leads to all kinds of terrible diseases so there's a bit of inconsistency in the building about the health freakery brigade, me thinks.

Next year, another health scare. Maybe the fruit and veg will be found to be bad for us after all. Given the amount of chemicals that are pumped into them these days, I wouldn't be remotely surprised.
I find no offense to his threads, but to how he presents his threads; it's a constant manipulation of the truth, and sometimes flat out lies.

That's not a bad idea, BVS. If it keeps going nowhere (and no, that doesn't make it trolling), why bother.

Nice.

One thing I saw Morimoto do on Iron Chef that I like to copy is Roasted Pepper Nigiri. You roast red peppers (green is fun and bizarre, too), marinate them (soy sauce, seasoned rice vinegar, etc.), cut them to sushi size and then shape them into nice pieces of nigiri with the sushi rice--wasabi underneath optional.

They make great appetizers, especially for people who don't think they like sushi. The color of the marinated roasted pepper looks like beautiful red tuna meat.

That is very interesting information regarding lactose tolerance, anitram, I didn't know that, either. I've never had a problem digesting milk or any other dairy products (I HATE the fat-free stuff, it tastes blech), but then again, I'm of complete European descent, so that would probably explain why. What exactly is the reason why one group can digest milk properly but others can't?

I've always thought it was rather strange that we are relying on a fast-food restaurant to lead kids to healthy eating. When exactly has McDonald's ever advertised itself as a healthy choice for people? Their food is greasy, that alone should be a tip-off. If you don't want your kids to eat McDonald's food, just don't go there . Go buy healthy food wherever you're able to and then make it at home and serve it to your kids. Put it in their lunches they take to school. Whatever.

I can understand the attention paid to what food is being served to kids at school. You have to go to school. You don't have to go to McDonald's.

I agree, and no one said that we're "relying" on fast food to do this, but let's face it too many kids are relying on happy meals. There's a few reasons for this, different paced lifestyle, parents not being educated enough to know what they are feeding their kids, etc...

Should we allow cigarettes being marketed to kids? So why are we allowing this poison being marketed to kids as real food?

it's not just kids who need to know this shit. after high school and entering university, every single one of my friends (and myself) gained a disgusting amount of weight becausr of the sudden extra availability of that shit.

one way or another, we've got ourselves together....but if a pack of smart teens (we were, stfu) can't keep ourselves in control, how are the kids going to cope?

The human body can survive a lot of poisons in small doses, but it's still poison.

If you saw the movie, he didn't even make it a month before he had big health issues. I know plenty of people who almost eat it that often.
