Prince Charles: 'Ban The Big Mac'

British royal PRINCE CHARLES has called for the closure of MCDonalds fast food outlets worldwide in a bid to curb rising obesity levels. The prince targeted the chain as he attended the launch of a public health awareness campaign to fight diabetes in the United Arab Emirates. Speaking to nutritionist NADINE TAYARA at the Imperial College London Diabetes Centre in Abu Dhabi, Charles said, "Have you got anywhere with MCDonald's, have you tried getting it banned? That's the key." The prince has made no secret of his organic preferences in the past. In 1986 he set up a farm on his Highgrove Estate in Gloucestershire, England outlawing the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers.

It would be much more beneficial to educate the public on the importance of eating healthy foods. A better approach would be to institutionalize the use of healthy foods for any foods served by government agencies, sending a clear message that the government(s) do(es) not support the frequent consumption of bad foods. Also, I would recommend institutionalizing (via government subsidization of health clubs memberships, etc.) a form of an exercise program that rewards individuals for getting into shape (lottery, etc.).

Just last weekend I drove from Seattle, Wa to Eugene, Or and the whole drive down I think I saw hundreds and hundreds of McDonalds.. If not McDonalds it was another horrible fast food restaurant..
