We always hear about schools making dietary rules to avoid allergies, but what about other health issues? It's been shown again and again that the use of corn syrup in our diet is connected to the exponential increase of type 2 diabetes across all demographics, not to mention the factors it plays in obesity and food addiction.
That isn't something that only impacts a few kids with allergies - it's slowly predisposing every child in the school towards diabetes and other health problems. Even if they have restrictions in home, nearly everything they eat in a school lunch contains corn syrup, even non-sweet foods. From the bread to the milk, it's in everything they swallow. And it's not simply empty calories, it's empty calories that do even more damage by adversely impacting insulin levels over long term use (as the body processes more and more with every food and drink, it becomes less able to monitor how much actual insulin it really needs). Because of how food is processed, that one restriction would circumvent a lot of the other bad food that makes it into the lunchroom, banning the corn syrup would ban all the overprocessed, high fat, and high salt foods that usually contain all 3 problems in one.Answer Question
