Via the wonderful Marion Nestle we find that there is a bill trying to make its way through the Mississippi legislature to ban people who are overweight from restaurants by fining the establishment for serving them.
I would suspect this has a snowball’s chance in hell of passing but just the idea that someone thought this was a good idea is so preposterous. The issue is our food system and how completely out of whack it is and not overweight people eating at restaurants.
This kind of stuff is just so aggravating. We need reform of the food system as a whole to affect people’s health not pass stupid laws like this.
C’mon guys. Think out of the box just a bit.
