Personal responsibility seems to have left the building with Elvis. It is so much easier to let someone else make the choice than complain. Why not ban television all together. Than you don’t have to worry about what advertising is on when and everyone can send their children outside to play.

Good grief. Can it be that the United Kingdom’s nutrition police are even more intrusive than ours are here in the USofA?! Where will it all lead?
You are so right. It is vital that each of us assume much greater responsibility for our own dietary choices, and that we not rely on the government or on some overwrought group to micromanage our decisions concerning nutrition and health. Your excellent, new blog, free of any
blather and hocus-pocus, will help those of us, who incredibly may still be clueless, to navigate
the jungle of misinformation out there. Thank you
so much, Voice of Reason!

I totally agree…what’s happened to personal responsibility? But another point is on the group you mention: PCRM. They really aren’t physicians at all. Only a small percentage of members are actually doctors (probably around 5, maybe 10 percent). The group is closely related to PETA, and is more interested in animal activism than human health. I’ll take health advice from groups who really have my best interest, and my child’s best interest, in mind.

Tracy: You bring up a good point. The public shouldn’t assume an organization is credible based upon its name. Investigating information sources is critical when public health is at stake.
