I guess they pay people to sit around and invent problems attributable to our culture/lifestyle/society.

I just saw on the news that there is major concern over the amount of cholesterol children are getting from Easter Eggs.

If/when the sky does fall, it will fall on my head in The Villages. Can it get any better than that? I don't think so.

I'd say "If only the media would stop manipulating the minors into being majors".

Our society is intent on taking all the joy out of living by telling us how bad everything is for us. Moderation is the key to happiness---try to forget about all the "evils" out there in our food, air and water that are trying to kill us and enjoy what you like.

Do you have a link to that story? Anyone can take a comment out of context.

Sorry, I'm only asking what would be asked of me if I started a thread like this.

Isn't it amazing that no one else thought to ask that question?

BTW, there are more and more kids who have diabetes and heart disease etc.

Kind of hard to provide a link to something I saw on TV.

Don't worry about it it's one of several sentences he dishes out. Another is that you can't trust anything on the Internet. It's a circular argument that leads nowhere.

Default This may be the reason for the TV news story:

Search: "High Cholesterol & Liver Problems" or "Liver Function and Cholesterol Levels" (Livingstrong.com)

"High cholesterol levels can lead to a build up of fat in your liver potentially causing.....fatty liver disease." If left untreated, it can lead to scarring and eventual liver failure.

I remember reading a report on this some time ago stating that more and more kids are developing fatty liver disease.
