The livestock industry's to blame

Obviously all those chemicals are bad for humans.

Absolutely true, but it's not just livestock, its canned and processed foods, groundwater pollution, flame retardants, glues, pesticides, you name it,-endocrine disruptors have become a ubiquitous and virtually inescapable presence of the modern world. Thanks a bunch to Dow, Monsanto, DuPont and all the other lovely profit obsessed companies who lobby the FDA to tell us their Toxic Waste is "safe". (talk)21:28, 12 August 2010

There would of been early puberty in the Middle Ages if they ate as much than your average American kids. No corporate conspiracy here. Only parenting failure. (talk)11:52, 13 August 2010

The average American kids eat more because they are influenced by the corporations who sell food. And the parents are influenced too. It all boils down to the corporations' greed.

No one forces them to buy what they sell. Watching TV must be expensive for you, considering at least 15 different products are advertised each hour. (talk)21:31, 15 August 2010
