Did you know there was a coalition (of sorts) of organizations taking a stand for food freedom? Food Freedom advocates oppose having government interference in what we can or cannot eat through regulations. Lawsuits have been filed over NYC's soda ban, Philadelphia's ban on feeding the homeless because the city health department would not be able to assess the nutrient value of the meals, and for the right to drink raw milk. Plus many more.
As an example of government playing big brother with our food choices, a couple weeks ago I was in the grocery store and had a chance to talk with the Coke guy who was stocking shelves. I asked him why the 6 pack of 20/24 ounce bottles were no longer being sold and instead they stock smaller 6 packs. He said the state didn't want people having that much sugar. I told him, well, I could make one bottle last a couple of days and I miss that because the smaller 6 packs cost the same as the larger. He then said, "Well not everyone has that much self restraint".
I mean, really? Too many regulations, too much government deciding things for us.
