With all the supporting evidence of problems with high sugar consumption and that fact that we already have a high intake of sugar whether we realise it or not, why do parents encourage children to collect candy? Yes there is already an insidious epidemic of high sugar consumption that is deadly and we continue a self denial that we are eating in moderation......then we wonder why someone who appeared to eat healthy/seemed healthy had a heart attack/stroke/cancer/etc.
I rant here, but if parents are encouraging kids to collect candy, we might as well throw in the cigarettes and hard core drugs..... None of it is responsible.
So I know its a rant but it's all about our societies needing to change.
I'd like to celebrate "Killing Halloween". Would anyone like to join me?
