Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a good one!

Did you know that the laws about food are influenced by the food industry? For instance, some places want laws that require fast food restaurants to post information about how many calories are in their food. Fast food restaurants often fight this kind of law because they don't want people to find out how fattening and unhealthy their food can be or some people would stop eating it. It's too bad that companies are more interested in making money than in keeping people healthy or just telling the truth.
