Citizens: Put Salt On Your Sugar!

Salt: #1 Killer After Sugar

Nine out of 10 American adults consume too much salt and the leading culprit is not potato chips or popcorn but slices of bread and dinner rolls, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today.

Last week a respected health research group said too much sugar is killing us.  I say they should both shut the fock up.

The CDC said 44- percent of salt consumed can be linked to 10 types of foods. Bread and rolls are worst followed by cold cuts and cured meat, pizza, poultry, soups, sandwiches, cheese, pasta dishes, meat dishes and snacks such as pretzels and potato chips.  Hell, that’s my whole friggin’ diet!

Last year, New York State Assemblyman Felix Ortiz introduced a bill that would ban the use of salt in New York restaurants. The shaky hands of violators would be slapped with a $1,000 fine for every salty dish on the menu.

Assemblyman Ortiz is an idiot.

I love salt – I salt ham.  I sometimes fight the deer in the woods for the licks.  And I don’t  want some Brooklyn political hack or the CDC telling restaurants how much salt to use or the government to put a tax on sugary food.

Felix – don’t like salt?  Order out for some hospital food.  CDC – find a cure for cancer or AIDS and quit wasting the taxpayers’ money!

The Sweet Girlie-Boy

Cocaine is referred to as “girl” on the street. Heroin is “boy.” Sugar is called “sugar” – but there are many scientists who believe they’re all about equally addicting (along with tobacco, alcohol, and caffeine) and should be regulated by the government.

Last week a team of researchers released a report and concluded that sugar is deadly enough to be considered a controlled substance.  They wrote:

“A growing body of scientific evidence is showing that fructose can trigger processes that lead to liver toxicity and a host of other chronic diseases.”

U.S. adults swallow from 22-34 teaspoons of sugar a day.

To counter our consumption, the authors advocate taxing sugary foods and controlling sales to kids under 17.
