Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Woo hoo! Bigs cry, Bees cheer.

Stop Feeding Junk to the Kidlets

For the love of Fuji [7], can we please stop slinging soda and chips and pizza at children? Vending machines and cafeterias are contributing to an obesity epidemic that is an embarrassing indictment of our public education system. Fortunately, some standards may soon be put in place. The only thing we’re concerned about is that these new “standards” aren’t exactly the cornucopia of healthy food you’d hope for. But anything is better than nuggets and fries. You’ll want to read about this news out today over at this blog [8], because it’s put in a far more entertaining and insightful light than the AP release going around the web.

Sara adds: One of my favorite blogs, The Cardio Blog [10], got into this very controversial issue yesterday. I left a comment, and I encourage you to do the same (tell me I’m way off or tell me I’m right, and give that blog some well-deserved props for addressing this very important issue). That blog has gone from pretty sanitized to downright compelling lately, which I know you’ll appreciate. So check it out!

Tell Us Something We Don’t Know

This is news [11]? It gets worse [12]. Don’t miss this blog’s analysis [13]. Think that it’s just a conspiracy theory that Big Pharma is trying to buy off doctors? Think again.

Harming Moms and Babies

Big Agra doesn’t like moms breast-feeding because, to be blunt, it’s not profitable. So, they’re very cleverly playing into the obesity epidemic scare [14] by inventing formula that “prevents” obesity. Way to love the next generation, guys.

Doctors and Nutrition

You know that saying about how doctors only receive one semester of nutritional training? (And boy, is it woefully out of date.) Well, here’s some good progress [15] being made.

As if we weren’t already in enough trouble, be sure to visit tomorrow to read Mark’s piece, “How to Get Sick and Die” (we’re not stopping until we’re in hot water with The Man). Until tomorrow, Apples!
