Food Marketers Free From Fatty Lawsuits

Fast food fatties who like to blame fast food establishment like McDonald's and Burger King for their weight gain may soon be out of luck. The House of Representative passed a bill banning obesity-related lawsuits against restaurants and food makers. Urging people to get their lazy asses off the couch, supporters of the bill said the purpose of the bill is to place responsibility for one's own weight squarely where it belongs - with the person who controls their hands that place food in their mouth - and not makes of food even if the food is horribly unhealthy and dangerous to one's health. The point being, restaurant and food manufacturers haven't yet found a way to force feed humans. Until that time, it's the individual who will be in control of caloric intake.
