No concern about high fructose corn syrup.

No mention of lack of physical activity.

Do a search on the increase of obesity since the early 80's
since the intoduction of HFCS.

Free recess in schools where kid can run and play?

Try to find a school that allows this for more than twenty
minutes a day.


Another stupid big government demand that will do nothing.

I really don't see how that would work. Because healthier foods may be considered "uncool", few high schoolers wouldn't want to be caught dead getting fruit or veggies from the vending machine. If kids do get around to snacking on healthy foods, it will be a while.

Obesity is a problem, there's no denying that. But it will take a lot to tackle the issue. There are some people who eat nonstop due to emotional problems, and there are plenty who are in complete denial that their morbid obesity is hurting them. Obesity is like smoking or heavy drinking, it should be addressed almost the same way.

You really don't have that in the US?

When I went to elementary school (in Toronto), we would have 2x15 min free recess (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and a 60 minute lunch, the last 30 mins of which was a free recess. Always outdoors unless it went to -15Celsius, then they'd shorten the lunch one to 15 mins. But altogether that was an hour outside in a pretty crappy climate.

We had recess when I was in elementary school. And gym, though by the time I got to high school in one of the towns I lived in they only had you taking it for one semester. I hated gym class, but I think it should be a full school year type thing.

I think a lot of schools still do recess-correct me if I'm wrong on that, though. From what I've heard, some schools are much more touchy about what kids can do when they're outside now, though-tag is seen as "too dangerous" and some schools have weird "no touching/hugging" rules (we're talking, like, kids can't even give their friends a quick hug). So maybe that's a factor. I definitely agree that any schools that have cut down on any chance for kids to get any physical exercise are only contributing to the obesity problem-they want to change their menus to be healthier, that's fine, but they have to do a bit more than that as well. Kids need to get out and get some fresh air and all that good stuff.

A good report, I think, from Natural News on this latest decree from the USDA:

USDA school lunch reform rules are a complete hoax: here's the proof

Looks like the food police are after Chris Christie again. Healthiest fat guy in America.

I agree with him about that White House doctor, don't think she had any business saying those things on tv. She's not his doctor, and he does have kids. It's crazy to me if his cholesterol, bp, and blood sugar are really all at healthy levels. But like he said, his doctor has told him that his time is running out. He knows he has a problem and has to do something about it.

Talking White Bread Disaster Blues; Is it True?

Talking White Bread Disaster Blues; Is it True?

Pilgrims, I’m as serious as a sliced vine ripe tomato, Duke’s mayonnaise, salt and pepper, between two slices of white bread. I’m almost heartbroken to tell you this; something dastardly has been done to our beloved white bread. I started to notice the change last year. Our usual brand just didn’t look white anymore. It seemed to have more air pockets on the surface and had a rougher different taste. Unlike the soft and creamy taste I associate with white bread.

After that initial discovery we bought other brands. They all seemed to be different. I looked at the ingredients. I don’t know half of what the ingredients are; the only one I think might be the culprit is barley malt. Is this the devil that has been added to the recipe?

Have you noticed this change or is it just me? Have my eyes grown dim, my taste buds dull? Please comment if you haven’t or have. I hope I’m wrong about this! If I’m wrong please forgive my rant. My stupidity! Wasting your time.

But you agree, please help spread this shocking discovery. Share it, tweet, email, copy and pastes, tell your friends, write the local papers, call talk radio, contact your congressman. Whatever! This must be rectified! We must demand our beloved white bread be restored to its former glory.

Don’t believe the phony propaganda of recent years that have demonized white bread. Do a Google search and find the truth.

During the 20th century we were powered by enriched fortified white bread. We grew, fought and won two world wars, we prospered.

Let us raise the flag, fight, and shout, do not tread on our white bread!

Well white bread sucks, always has, but I've noticed that the wheat sliced bread that I buy these days has a much longer shelf life than it used to, which makes me suspicious.

What the heck?



I don't eat white bread anyway, but I have in the past and it always was the same to me. Never noticed a difference. Then again bakers aren't allowed to put many chemicals in the bread here.

Iron Horse, are those your words or were they copied and pasted from another source?

Either way, I can't help but think conspiracy theory when I read that post.
