eta: If Out Lawing Smoking in the Car around kids is okay, is outlawing large amounts of fattening sugary sh** we give them okay too?
If the purpose of outlawing smoking around kids is to prevent them from getting sick and to prevent them from long term health problems, that reasoing is analogous to outlawing giving minors sugary crap because it can get them fat and sick later on. I don't see the difference.
if its ok in moderation, then they should outlaw giving minors sugary or processed food OUT of moderation, becuase many parents do that, which is why the obesity epidemic is rising. if the reasoning behind smoking in cars with kids is outlawed because of health reasons, then regulating and outlawing giving kids unhealthy large amounts of processed sugary foods should also be the same. there is no difference, because in the long term, that will probably give you either a heart attack, stroke or diabetes.
