Doctor knows best

…The American Medical Association has decided the salty foods have to go and sugary sodas need to cost more.

…At their annual meeting, the mainstream docs are asking the FDA to be stricter about processed foods, fast food, restaurant food.

…Naturally, our premier national nanny, The Center for Science in the Public Interest, is all for the salt restrictions.

…The AMA also thinks taxes will cut soda consumption slightly, just as they did cigarette smoking.

…Some states already have such taxes.

…Michael Jacobson of CSPI thinks earmarking those funds for programs promoting a better diet would be a plus.

…(To be honest, HA once saw him put a hurting on a crudite platter and leave the shrimp behind.)

…Jump back out of the way, more nannying coming!
