    I don’t eat what’s known as ‘junk food’. I made a conscience decision to eat in a healthy way. That is my decision. But shouldn’t it be up to everyone to make their own minds as to what they put into their bodies?

    Why should it me made a law, so people don’t have to ‘think’ for themselves.’

    Why can’t we make our own decisions, both good and bad, instead of having the government or and ‘expert’ to tell us what’s best for us.

    If we don’t make our own personal decisions and have everyone tell us what’s good (or bad), then what are we going to be like as a person, in 20, 30 years time, when someone else thinks for us?
