Default Re: San Francisco goes after trans fats too

If I engaged in "widespread poisoning of the food supply" (whatever that's supposed to mean), then presumably you would not be able to eat food without poison in it.

you'd be hard pressed to not eat trans fat unless you cook from scratch. and not eat out.

what about fluoride in water. same thing really.

Is the implication here that you're entitled to tell me I must learn to prefer certain types of foods, or else I am responsible for the lowered demand (and the metaphorical "poisoning") of the types of foods you wish were more readily for you? What if I'm a hunter who lives off my own game? What if I have throat cancer and am fed through a tube to my stomach? Is it my obligation to you to contribute to the demand for the types of foods that you want available?
