No. it is governments' "job" to protect us from ourselves and to remove any inkling of personal responsibility from its citizens. Big Nanny will tell us what we should eat, how much, and when.

By Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAY
If you plan to chow down tonight at a big chain restaurant, there's a better than nine-in-10 chance that your entree will fail to meet federal nutrition recommendations for both adults and kids, according to a provocative new study.
A whopping 96% of main entrees sold at top U.S. chain eateries exceed daily limits for calories, sodium, fat and saturated fat recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, reports the 18-month study conducted by the Rand Corp. and funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
