Cigarettes, Alcohol and Twinkies*

Yes – twinkies.. Should highly processed saturated fat laden foods be looked upon like cigarettes and alcohol?

In terms of how they effect your body – maybe yes.

Kelley Brownell suggests this in a 1994 – Ed/Op column – Get Slim with Higher Taxes.

She states that – Environment is the real cause of obesity.

She suggest that the unhealthy food is taxed — and that the revenue would go to public work out facilities, bike paths and running tracks.

She also criticizes the advertising of soda, candy and sugar cereals aimed at children – using cartoons and gimmicks.
