(Swedish town bans excellent school meals because they’re better than average school meals )
And this is how civilizations die. By ignoring the true prime directive, and even going against it.
“Always strive to be the best”

Another example of the coming life under the boot of socialism. A caring cook in Sweden provides an excellent menu for the kids eating in the school cafeteria and gets told to stopbecause it is unfair to other schools.

Here’s another article on the same incident from The Local, an English language Swedish news site, sent yesterday by a reader:

A talented head cook at a school in central Sweden has been told to stop baking fresh bread and to cut back on her wide-ranging veggie buffets because it was unfair that students at other schools didn’t have access to the unusually tasty offerings.Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, was told that her cooking is just too good.
Pupils at the school have become accustomed to feasting on newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, but now the good times are over.
The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food—and that is “unfair”.
Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn’t comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality.

common sense. people should have it, socialism and government never do


Avocado Soup?

July 4, 2011
The fruit is also a very concentrated dietary source of the carotenoid lutein, a phytochemical that protects the eyes against macular degeneration and cataracts. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin K, essential for normal blood clotting; calcium to maintain strong bones; folate to combat against Alzheimer’s disease; and vitamin C to boost the immune system. Avocados are loaded with monounsaturated fats, a good kind of fat also found in olive oil, that boasts all sorts of health benefits, such as lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease, and even offering protection against certain cancers like colon and breast.

Scientists Discover Why Smokers Tend To Be Thinner

U.S. scientists have figured out exactly how nicotine acts as an appetite suppressant in the brain, a finding that could one day help in the fight against obesity, researchers said Thursday.
Smokers tend to be thinner than people who don’t smoke, and the study led by Yale University and published in the journal Science describes how nicotine activates certain neurons in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus.
Those neurons tell the body when it’s had enough to eat, according to senior author Marina Picciotto, a professor of neurobiology and pharmacology at Yale.
“Many people say they won’t quit smoking because they’ll gain weight. Ultimately, we would like to help people maintain their body weight when they kick the habit and perhaps help non-smokers who are struggling with obesity.”
Researchers made the discovery by studying mice, but are hopeful that similar receptors can be isolated in humans, too.
A research scientist in Picciotto’s lab was studying nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, which are on the surface of neurons, to see if an experimental drug to treat depression would have any effect.
“He noticed that mice given the drug ate less than those not on the medication,” said the study, which led to a wider investigation with researchers at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada and the University of Hawaii.
A series of experiments showed that the drug could turn on a certain nicotine receptor which then told a subset of neurons in the hypothalamus — called pro-opiomelanocortin or POMC cells — that dinner time was over.
The receptor was also independent of the ones that trigger the craving for nicotine in smokers.
“This suggests it is possible to get the effect of appetite suppression without also triggering the brain’s reward centers,” Picciotto said.
“Identifying this receptor is important for the understanding of the mechanisms related to addiction, weight and smoking.”

I also saw another study that said that smokers were less likely to get Alzheimer’s Disease.  The health fascists are just another form of social engineers… no better then feminists.
