    Wow, don't criticize with the actual ideas someone puts forward. Nope, just go straight for calling the kid fat, because everyone knows a person's physical appearance totally invalidates everything else.

      Hmm, where did I said anything that could be interpreted as me invalidating her petition because she is fat??? I just asked a question, granted, off-topic because it is not related to the topic of her petition, but still a legitimate question.

      I guess I should have said overweight instead of fat, my bad.

        Brominated vegetable oil, or even regular old vegetable oil, is worse than sugar-water by several orders of magnitude. Props to her for calling attention to it.

        A quick look at wikipedia shows most of the civilized world has banned BVO except for the U.S. Go figure. Even freaking India banned it.

        Also, what's with all the vegetarian hate on a site run by a guy married to a vegetarian? There are real food vegetarians and crap food vegetarians, just like there are low carb paleos and there are Jimmy Moores. Besides, at her age, she's pretty much at the mercy of what her parents are buying, so being overweight shouldn't completely discredit her.

          You can certainly get fat as a vegetarian and vegan if you don't eat vegetables. Chips, cookies, processed junk foods, soy meats, all are vegetarian too.

            Gatorade is designed for athletes.. yet I always see fat non active people drinking it. Funny how that works.

              From what I have read, brominated vegetable oils - brominated anything in fact - are seriously bad shit. Could be on a par with the sugar.

                It's not terrible for athletes who work out for a living or play sports competitively. For people walking 2 mph at the gym, it's overkill.
