DailyDirt: Not-So-Fun Food Findings…
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
There are so many food choices — but that doesn’t make it any easier to eat healthy foods. Being hard-wired to enjoy sugar, salt and fat doesn’t exactly help either. Diet resolutions for 2012 are just around the corner, but for now, we’ll just point out a few quick links on eating food that might not be that good for you.
- Comparing prison food to school cafetaria food doesn’t make for a very appetizing infographic. It might be interesting to see a comparison that includes astronaut food… or military rations [url]
- Most people think that uncooked cookie dough shouldn’t be eaten because of the raw eggs, but it’s actually the raw flour in store-bought dough that’s the likely culprit for making people sick. Seems like cookie dough manufacturers should start pasteurizing their flour since a significant number of people are intentionally eating unbaked batter. [url]
- Correlation is not the same as causation, but there seems to be a correlation between young men who eat a lot of junk food and having lower-quality sperm. In other news, unhealthy food makes you unhealthy. [url]

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

School/prison food doesn't surprise me
Especially in smaller communities, the meals are even fixed in the same kitchen before being shipped to various school, jail, and prison cafeterias. Probably prepared right alongside Meals On Wheels.
Prison food looks a bit better than school food.
It may be cheaper but it does seem a bit healthier from the description.

(and the pizza slice i guess but when i was in school for the short time i was i was never served pizza, just this shitty “fake cheese” sandwhich crap with fake powder “mashed potatoes”
Well, that confirms a stereotype.
Americans are school trained not to have any real sense of taste.
The cookie dough story.. who would be so silly as to buy pre-made cookie dough in the first place?
Correlation May Not Be The Same As Causation ...
… but I?m not sure how that can cause me to conclude anything.

For the prison meals, they forgot to list the percentage of bodily waste (urine & feces).
