Frozen Pizza: Fruit or Vegetable?
But the European Food Standards Authority does, and in an incredible edict, has banned bottled water distributors from advertising that drinking water helps prevent dehydration. This is after a three-year study involving 21 scientists. Any business owner ignoring this command faces two years in a European hoosegow, where he will be water boarded with San Pellegrino and Perrier.
Can you say Nanny State?
Before you do, take a look at Congress. In a bow to $5.6 billion spent by food companies opposed to new regulations in the school cafeteria, our federal legislators have decided to classify frozen pizza as a vegetable. After all, there's tomato paste on it.
That's just nuts.
Everybody knows the tomato is a fruit.
Which is worse, a nanny state or one in which corporations rule?
