tarhammer: On the large soft drinks and choice and society? I'm fine with people who want to make their own choices about what to eat and whether to have health insurance or not, as long as they're equally fervent in their acceptance of the consequences. That means that if you drink 3 big gulps a day and develop a handful of illnesses from that like diabetes or high blood pressure, your insurance company doesn't have to pay for your coverage on those areas because the illness is willfully self inflicted. They should also be able to routinely charge you more because your lifestyle choices mean you're less healthy, and that is your decision and your fault. If you have no health care because you want that choice and you get sick and have no money to pay? You stay home and accept the consequences of your choice.

lordargent: FarkedOver: If only people were given a living wage and could afford to make healthier decisions.Water is free.And tea is cheap.The real problem is, some people have no willpower, and no amount of taxing or banning is going to change that.// used to drink six cans of dew per day, on average.

soup: [i.imgur.com image 497x288]Can you guess what the percentages are in reference to?
Slaves2Darkness: We should round up these fatties and force them into camps and force them to exercise while at the same time reducing their calorie intake, Type 2 diabetes has been shown to respond very well to weight loss. Maybe we should call them Freedom through exercise camps.
