Below is an amusing and informative video by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff about the food industry.

Notice that the suggestion in this video involves the hotly contested political issue of Governmental control. Dr. Freedhoff, a Canadian obesity medical doctor, believes that governments should provide more regulations for the food industry. Most people want the Government to provide individual protection, but not to the extent that it interferes with individual Freedom.

It is obvious that Society needs to provide rules to protect individuals, but most people agree that there must be a border, or limit, in order to provide balance between an individual’s protection and an individual’s freedom. The issue addressed is a good example of that Question of Balance.

We already have 'legislation' and we are told what to eat and when to eat. what we need is 'education' so we can be fully informed on what to eat.

Dr. Freedhoff makes excellent points but I'm leery about his proposal to add more regulations to the food industry. After all, who regulates the regulators. I propose warning labels on food similar to those on alcohol and cigarettes.

John and Jethro, on this issue, I have no answers ... only observations and questions.
