This Government won’t be happy until America is a socialist nanny state, now they want strict laws in place to take snack machines out of schools, even though the studies proved there were no huge effects to show that it actually help.
Although small, the results did raise optimism among obesity researchers and public health experts to push for strong laws to get junk food out of schools. I think the optimism actually comes from the chance they have to govern the people and put them under the thumb of government.
The results come from the first large national look at the effectiveness of the state laws over time. They are not a slam-dunk, and even obesity experts who praised the study acknowledge the measures are a political hot potato, smacking of a “nanny state” and opposed by industry and cash-strapped schools relying on food processors’ money.
But if the laws have even a tiny effect, “what are the downsides of improving the food environment for children today?” asked Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital.
