zarker: I read something about some woman's neighbor calling cps because she was poisoning her child. They took him from her no questions asked and returned him when nothing was wrong. Cps /then/ asked the neighbor why she would say such a thing, and she replied with "They feed him meat!"We live in a world where it's preferable to feed children lies than perfectly safe food.
js34603: That's because Jif has a bunch of sugar in it.But hey here's so more amazing news...kids like soda better than water. Guess we better let them drink soda and not tell them they can't have it. Or just realize kids are morons and don't know what's good for them, that's what makes them kids.
umad: I only eat organic. I don't know how any of you can stand to eat food that isn't carbon-based.
happydude45: megarian: perigee: Do men do any of this crap? Or are they just cowed into submission to the line by the mad harpies they foolishly married and shot seed into?It's so upsetting that men are forced to marry and shoot seed into these harpies.Yes. Men do this, too. And it's just as obnoxious.That's why, male or female, one consciously avoids pretentious a'holes, and damn sure doesn't marry one.
Dirty J1: Fano: Dirty J1: js34603: That's because Jif has a bunch of sugar in it.But hey here's so more amazing news...kids like soda better than water. Guess we better let them drink soda and not tell them they can't have it. Or just realize kids are morons and don't know what's good for them, that's what makes them kids.I agree, but why lie to a kid? Dont parents have the balls to tell kids the truth these days? Instead of "oh sorry, they only make it in Puerto Rico," you could simply say "because jif is bad for you."They're afraid that if they ever say "No" their kids will hate them.Bah.... It's a shame kids don't hear words like "no" or "you're a loser" until they are grown up. Then it becomes a huge shock.
vernonFL: I try to buy organic and healthy food when I can. If not, its not the end of the world.
Jean Claude Van Darn: Because they didn't want him having ice cream, some overly health conscious friends of mine told their son that the ice cream truck was just "the music truck that drives around and plays music in neighborhoods with kids".It is the saddest thing I have ever heard to this day. The Rwandan Genocide has nothing on this story.
ThighsofGlory: Weatherkiss: ThighsofGlory: Unless you lie to them when they're children. No one wants to be friends with a liar.Many politicians would disagree with you.They're lying.
PanicMan: Fun fact: kids don't have income or transportation and have to eat whatever you tell them to. If you tell them "no", they have to live with it.
imfallen_angel: adding peanut butter to the list of things on Fark where there's a bunch of snobs/hipsters ranting about it.Is anything safe?
buckler: umad: I only eat organic. I don't know how any of you can stand to eat food that isn't carbon-based.Are you kidding? Silicon and methane-based macaroons are delish!
LazyMedia: svanmeter: Paradigm crusher: "Nor are organic foods healthier. As Scientific America notes, 50 years of studies in the UK found that organic and conventional foods have the exact same nutritional content."/interestingThis is such a dumb point. Of course they have the same nutritional content. Nobody's saying organic food has more calories, minerals and vitamins. It's just not covered in pesticides or full of antibiotics and preservatives, and it's fresher and tastes better. The big difference is the NON-nutritional content you get with non-organic food./Organic milk in a paper carton is freaky; it lasts for months. I save money on buying the more "expensive" organic, because I don't drink that much milk and it doesn't spoil.//Same thing goes for organic bananas. I think the chemically treated stuff kills off the good bugs, so that when the bad bugs make a comeback, they do it in a real hurry.///I don't really care if organic is healthier; it just tastes better because it hasn't been dosed with preservatives and stored for a long time.
hasty ambush: FTFA: One mother she met was convinced her child's ADD became worse when he was exposed to non-organic food. A stray Goldfish or Cheerio might set up off.I am going to guess this coont's poor kid (probably a boy) does not even really have ADD but she had to have her kid doped up to be part of the crowd.
Flint Ironstag: Jean Claude Van Darn: Because they didn't want him having ice cream, some overly health conscious friends of mine told their son that the ice cream truck was just "the music truck that drives around and plays music in neighborhoods with kids".It is the saddest thing I have ever heard to this day. The Rwandan Genocide has nothing on this story.A friend of mine told his kids that the ice cream truck only plays music when it has run out of ice cream.
BumpInTheNight: Here is a jif that represents my feelings towards most of those bland liquid cardboard organic spreads:[s11.postimg.org image 240x228]
meow said the dog: See you do the up feeling of me!
theorellior: meow said the dog: Paleo FTWHahaha I has a laughter out loud for the cavemen that didn't have TV to see Jif ads how did they know to choose Jif but all is okay becuase they all were of the healthy bodies in eating only ferns and yummy deer and never gluten of the horrible grain plants.
Skr: Which brand would George Washington Carver prefer?
meow said the dog: Paleo FTW
jayhawk88: A mom in Washington tells me that she was unable to participate in a number of nanny-share agreements she looked into because the other parents were so crazy about not having their children come into contact with anything non-organic. One mother she met was convinced her child's ADD became worse when he was exposed to non-organic food. A stray Goldfish or Cheerio might set up off.It's like turning your child into a time bomb that's set to go off in college.
enthralledgeishagirl: Going out on a limb to say it was the sugar that tipped it in
