    Government does not exist to choose our food for us! People need to make their own choices and deal with the consequences themselves. That way, when people determine there is a problem with their diet, they can fix the problem without a lot of hassle and expense.

    There are certain schools now that ban homemade lunchesChicago school bans homemade lunches, the latest in national food fight | The Lookout - Yahoo! News That's crazy. Parents should be able to send a healthy lunch with their child if they wish.

      Yes, dear soldiers, why don't you grow, raise and prepare your own food. We might be the first army in history to do that. But then again we do many other things nobody else in the world have done, going vegan, for example, drinking skim or soy "milk," eliminating history from teaching and minds, speaking "strategic planning" "positivity/negativity" talk, etc.

        From the Minnesota School of Public Health? Have you seen what the average Minnesotan looks like? Let's just say that from what I've seen, they are hardly the experts on health. ;-)

          In the past I believe that soldiers DID actually grow and raise their own food. They went on the move with herds of cattle or other animals and slaughtered them as needed.

          Actually, if Michelle Obama's suggestions were the same but MINUS the low fat part, I think they'd all become tremendously physically healthy, strong and able to withstand the stress of fighting way better. All those vegetables can become platforms for olive oil and butter. All that fruit can become delivery devices for coconut fat and cream.

            Yeah, they grew whatever they grew, went to a battle, shook hands with an enemy and returned to their crops.

            What is that? I would be a man, had I not been a woman ...
            In addition, toxic vegetables don't "create" tremendously physically healthy, strong and able to withstand ...." whatever. And yes, toxic soil leads to toxic vegetables. You see, there is a need for expertise, whether it's gardening or .... anything else and no amount of demagoguery and pomposity can replace it.

              This was De Soto's logistical solution when exploring what's now the southern U.S.:

              .. he took 13 hogs along and bred them on the march, so that by the following spring he had 300, a number which rose to 500 by fall ... With quartermaster supplies like that grunting along behind the column you simply couldn't starve.
              It's said that "vicious and dangerous" wild swine in the Okefenokee Swamp are descended from pigs that escaped from De Soto's troops.

                Let's face it there have been countless solutions, but, for example, Roman fibulae are found thousands of miles away from Rome, and if I understand it correctly Roman chickens' bones not.
                And, frankly, history is slightly older than De Soto and slightly broader than the southern U.S.

                  Good grief. I thought that would be interesting and amusing information for anyone who didn't know the story.

                  I would never have dreamed it would offend anyone, and still don't understand why it should. This can be a very weird board.

                    Good grief. We are having a discussion. BTW, it looks like De Soto's logistical solution wasn't an INDIVIDUAL decision of every soldier. And yes, "this can be a very weird board" is offensive. Sorry, not everyone is a soldier here and not everyone follows the order: "Now, laugh."

                      No kidding! Would you have argued with a man of that stamp?

                      I wasn't making some kind of point -- what point is there is that anecdote, anyway? And the point I thought worth making I made half a thread ago (about the likely significance of blue light) anyway.

                      No particular point. It was to instruct or amuse or pass over and forget as the reader chose.

                          Huh? I'm thinking that if they follow Michelle Obama's eat more vegetables but put copious fats, even if they eat lean meats along with it, why that would then be the primal blueprint. And we all know how great we feel on it.
