Should we place laws against unhealthy foods?


Many people argue that laws prohibiting certain foods infringe upon our rights. However, if unhealthy foods were outlawed, the obesity epidemic would die down, healthcare would become cheaper, life rates would increase, and I suggest that we would get over the unhealthy cravings in less than a year. It takes the choices from the people in order to help the people. Is this wrong or right?

    Great ideas Ron Burgundy (sorry, I had to say that). I hope nutrition education could produce effective results. However, I doubt that many people would take it to heart.

    "We just need healthy foods to be cheaper." Amen!

    Chicken Caesar salad lunch size for $3.99 (no water); or One qtr pound hot dog & soda (with free refills), and a large slice pizza at Costco for the same price! Hmmm?

    Health food is overpriced!

    I love your idea about ingredients. However, placing laws against certain foods would most likely be restricted to supermarkets and restaurants. People can still make what they want, but laws would hurt the availability of quick and easy junk food.
