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. 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.

    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 Iím not sure how that can cause me to conclude anything.

    Comparing prison food to school cafetaria food doesn't make for a very appetizing infographic.

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