"Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine" is just another east-coast-based bunch of professional litigants, and their latest target is the Poway and Los Angeles unified school districts. The reason? The schools are offering bacon, sausage, and baloney as food options for the chillin two or three times a week.
“Scientifically, there is no argument. Everybody knows we shouldn’t be serving this stuff to children,” Dr. Neal Barnard said.
So they're suing.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Dr. Barnard "said the goal is to remove all processed meats even if districts are doing a decent job offering a variety of choices for students."
Hey, Barney - try this on: you and your family eat what you think is good, I and my family eat what we think is good, and we all keep our noses out of each others' business. Why, that approach would even save the taxpayers who fund the schools money that might be used to buy a few basketballs rather than wasting it on litigation. Too easy, though, isn't it?
By the way, Barn - soy's got to be out, and for a couple of reasons: most of the soy grown in the USA is a dreaded GMO product. Soy is a huge source of estrogen; breast cancer is enough of a risk considering the body's own sources of estrogen. So maybe your idea of "replacing processed foods like bacon" with soy isn't such a good idea for young girls, eh? Oh, and you seem to have a bit of difficulty with classification, there, Barn - bacon isn't "processed"; it's cured pork belly. Sausage isn't processed, either - it's ground pork that's seasoned and in some cases cured.
And don't forget, "doctor" - sue grill manufacturers!
Say...aren't we supposed to be keeping religion out of schools (except for Muslims)?
If you eat a couple of strips of bacon a day, the odds of your becoming a suicide bomber drop to zero.
