Do not welcome our nannystate overlords.
Seriously why do we have to keep legislating everything.
When did the FDA become a legislative body? Did I miss that?
The FDA can schedule drugs, so they can decide whether or not I'll get locked in a cage for putting a particular substance in my body. I don't think the term "legislating" is too far off.
Soon after Government run healthcare they are going to tell you want you can and can't eat.
And yet in countries with publicly funded health care the government doesn't do that. It's almost as if your comment is just plain bullshit.
And yet in the US one of the main reasons for taxing tobacco and alcohol is to reimburse Medicare, so a logical conclusion is to tax "bad" food once the State is responsible for everyone's health care. Hell, trans fat is banned in some local jurisdictions so I could see banning other food substances in the future.
