The Nanny State Is On Your Plate
Re: Food industry braces for Obama trans fat ban.
Government food nannies — backed by the usual “panel of international scientists” — proclaim that the banning of trans fats will “directly prevent twenty thousand heart attacks and seven thousand deaths each and every year.”
I didn’t know our government health officials had access to a crystal ball.
“Statistics don’t lie, but liars use statistics.”
“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
(The last quote is wrongly attributed to multiple people, including Mark Twain.)
The sole cause of America’s health crisis is the Big Fat Mouth and the Two Hands that stuff it full of artificial toxic food.
“If man made it, don’t eat it,” according to the late health guru Jack LaLanne.
Follow the money.
Who do you think benefits when the government tells us what we can and can’t eat?
Government had its head up its butt when its officials and its “panel of international scientists” told us that cholesterol was bad for us.
Or that fluoride was good for us.
Never worship at the Altar of Science.
Scientists are matter-mongers on the payroll of the totalitarian state that George Orwell warned us about.
By the way, Mainstream Medicine helped kill George Orwell.
He was constantly relying on board-certified doctors to treat him for “bronchitis” and “tuberculosis.”
Well, hell, Nell, board-certified doctors are depraved tools of the totalitarian state.
George Orwell wrote (about one of his hospital stays) …
“There were many beds past which he [the attending physician] walked day after day, sometimes followed by imploring cries. On the other hand if you had some disease with which the students wanted to familiarize themselves you got plenty of attention of a kind. I myself, with an exceptionally fine specimen of a bronchial rattle, sometimes had as many as a dozen students queueing up to listen to my chest. It was a very queer feeling — queer, I mean, because of their intense interest in learning their jobs, together with a seeming lack of perception that the patients were human beings.”
