      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

McD's Contribution to a Heathier You

Recommended Posts

No, definitely NOT just McD's. But, you've got a good point, there re: labeling.

 

Still, do you think the manufacturers of a toxic product should be able to not only sell it, but advertise it to children as part of an acceptable diet and attract them with toys?

 

+1 to ending farm subsidies, btw.

It's all processed food, not just this or that chain. You don't escape if you shop the shit isles at Whole Foods.

 

Food has been adequately labeled for many years. That is my idea of effective regulation: require disclosure, let the buyer decide. A minority of folks uses this information to become healthier. The majority have gotten porkier. It's still effective regulation.

 

Marketing food to kids? That's purely a parenting issue. How would that regulation even work? Hint: it wouldn't.

 

The three most effective things to do to keep kids from porking out:

 

Eat whole foods.

Learn what a human, not a bovine, portion looks like.

STFU, you're not getting the toy.

Far from it. For example, there is no label for GMO (with the blessing of the Obama admin btw) because if it were labeled many wouldn't buy it.

so you are also for the tobacco industry specifically marketing their product to kids? why not?

Tobacco, unlike food, is a controlled substance that is illegal for minors. Very poor analogy.

 

Very poor logic: you are essentially arguing that junk food shouldn't be regulated because it isn't regulated. The point is that it should be regulated like a controlled substance. Anyway, junk food addiction likely kills people faster than addiction to tobacco.

Junk food is labeled, and therefore regulated.

What constitutes junk food and how should it be regulated? Sold only at Gubmint run mini marts? Anything with corn syrup in it? Will the gubmint check if you've run your 10 miles a day so you can share that gelato with your honey on a fine summer's evening? Would there be 'junk dark chocolate' (controlled) and non-junk dark chocolate?

 

Is steak junk food? Which cuts? Only hamburger? Lean's OK? What % fat?

 

This sounds like a good jobs program.....

You love having a new topic to whine about. Oh, the humanity! Regulate it!

Why are M&M's full of chocolate?

Because it would be illegal to fill them full of shit.

 

Why did ET the Extra Terrestrial love Reese's Pieces so much?

Well because they have the same flavour that cum does on his own planet.

 

How do you keep your pet dog from licking his balls?

Coat them in Domino's pizza sauce.

 

Why did God create Domino's Pizza?

To punish humanity for their complacency at letting the Holocaust happen.

 

Why do Pringles employees get laid so often?

Because they can.

 

Why does Arby's put so much mayonnaise on their sandwiches?

It makes it easier to flush them down the toilet.

 

How do you keep flies from landing on your Big Mac?

Unwrap it.

 

Why did Ronald McDonald have sex with his sister?

His judgment was impaired from all those years of eating junk food.

 

Why does KFC come in a bucket?

So you have something to throw up into afterwards.

 

Why did the Sanders girls, Colonel Sanders' daughters, absolutely refuse to eat KFC's extra crispy fried chicken?

Well because it brought back too many bad memories of their late father's foreskin.

 

Why did Colonel Sanders keep his eleven herbs and spices a secret?

Because he was ashamed of them.

 

And why, why did, on his deathbed, why did Colonel Sanders on his deathbed reveal the secret of his eleven herbs and spices to Academy Award-nominated actress Sally Fields?

Well, because he was desperate for a handjob... Would that have been funnier if we had a black gospel choir behind me?

Health is a wholistic affair. Sleep, relationships, food, vices, exercise, self actualization, work, hygiene, and genetics determine one's level of health, much of which is obviously subjective.

 

We should regulate all of these aspects of life to ensure our population is as healthy as can be.

 

Will federally enforced nappy time include graham crackers and milk, or would those foods pass federal muster?

Not really. There are at least 2 issues: a) what are permissible manufacturing techniques to insure the non-toxicity of products (we already have plenty of those but many need to be changed) and b) full product disclosure along with some rules about sugar and fat content of foods available within a given radius of public institutions like schools,hospitals, etc..

Does that "full disclosure" include public school cafeteria fare?

I would so love to draft a federally mandated diet program. Given that the dieting industry is practically non-existent in this country, I'm sure there'd be no corporate co-opting during such a project.

 

Then naps.

 

then vices, and jobs, and...oh, wait.

Certainly, public education and voluntary compliance couldn't possibly be a solution.

 

Legal sanctions have worked wonders with drugs.

 

Wonders.
