Science Daily Jan. 16, 2013 — Eating three or more weekly servings of fast food is linked to the severity of allergic asthma, eczema, and rhinitis among children in the developed world, indicates a large international study published online in the respiratory journal Thorax.
Holy shit. I’m speechless. You mean to tell me that shitty food causes health issues? This article confirms to me that there are simply too many people on this planet. You have people who eat fast food three or more times a week. You have scientists who can’t find real work, and have to resort to studying people who eat fast foo three or more times a week. You have people who spend time reading Thorax to “learn” about this finding. You have at least one moron who writes an op-ed about it on a website that hasn’t been updated in months. Obviously we are stunting evolution of the human race.
But seriously, are there really people that don’t know that bad food causes health issues? Is this news? Are we screwed? I know I eat cheeseburgers and rate them, but I also know the effects that the food has on my body. No scientist needs to tell me that; my weight and appearance are fine enough indicators.
