The list is endless. You guys really do need food police to patrol the food checkout isles. Maybe you should be 21 to get into the grocery store ?

Silly Govt laws, let's make everyone go purely organic vegetarians. But what about eggs ?
And as long as you're banning apple pie, you'd better ban Mom too. After all, don't the two go together and anyway, she's the one who fed them to you.

A committee may be needed for some food questions about what should and should not be acceptable.
The yolk is far more healthy than the white.

The Incredible, Edible Egg Yolk

Cholestrol (like fat) doesn't necessarily make something bad for you. There are good and bad cholestrols, just like there are good and bad fats, etc. However, any part of the egg is going to be much better for you than what you get in a McD's happy meal.

The wonderrful thing is that those addicted to McDonalds can still travel outside the city to get their fix, just like those addicted to cheap WALMART crap

Children who eat like crap will grow up to be like crap, and come down with health problems much sooner, leading to decreased productivity and overburdened health care systems. We're already seeing it now. Nothing wrong with "Newson's cabal" being proactive here.
In other words the City of SF think you parents are too stupid and or too spineless when it comes to properly raising your childen.

Fact or your opinion. If true, odds it's based on the city and not it's people or whacked out politics.

So when does the local Govt stop deciding whats good and bad to eat ?

How about the Oreo Cookies polished off with a glass of whole milk ? That's marketed to kids. Shouldn't we put a stop to such bad foods ?

Gotta have something to wash down after all that medical marijuana.

I think pizza & Chinese food should definitely be banned. Chinese food causes high blood pressure, and pizza is nothing but tryglerides and cheese. Many parents don't understand the dire consequences.

Those of you that said the egg should be banned are a little bit out there.
