Food police now targeting hot dogs

Evil Hot Dogs
Yes folks, this is happening. The food police are at it again. This time they are erecting billboards near venues that sell a lot of dogs. A billboard, located near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, from the Cancer Project of the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine reads, “Warning: Hot Dogs Can Wreck Your Health.” The headline is accompanied by an image of a cigarette pack filled with hot dogs.

So how many packs of hot dogs are you up to per day?

The food police are out in full effect doing everything they can to shove their agenda down our throats. The latest example of this comes from the city I grew up in – Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Public Schools have removed chocolate milk from the lunchroom menu saying that it is making our children fat. Desserts have been off the menu since 2006. The chocolate milk kids drink at school may very well be the only calcium they get. Think about it.

It doesn’t stop here though. Some schools in Chicago think they know what diet is best for your child and have banned bag lunches from home.

The attack on McDonald’s continues too. The watchdog group called Corporate Accountability International argue that the iconic Ronald McDonald is to fast food and obesity what Joe Camel was to cigarettes and smoking-related health issues. The food police want him banned. McDonald’s is doing a half-hearted job defending him though. You won’t find him on their website or featured in any ads.

And let us not forget how San Francisco banned the Happy Meal toy unless the meal met certain nutritional standards. TIME had the nerve to ask if the crack down on McDonald’s went far enough.
