Well, it's nice to know that doctors and other eggheads have the power over individual choices. As long as people are aware of the health risks, do you really believe scholars should be able to force or limit peoples' choices? Why not ban alcohol, tobacco, and other stuff... us peasants need direction from the nobility. Oh, they are by driving up costs.
If the tyrants cannot influence change, they force it. What a wonderful world. You can choose to die for your country, but don't you dare risk your life with food that is bad for you.
He is happy to have bureaucrats decree from up on high what the people can and cannot eat. Autocratic control over one's diet is the cool thing these days. Choice, freedom, and individual responsibility is SOOOOO 20th century.
I for one cannot wait to receive my mandatory government nutrition card that spells out exactly what I can eat and when I can eat it.
