    "Usa: fabbrica pop-corn condannata a risarcimento record

    (ANSA) - WASHINGTON, 16 MAR - Un produttore di pop-corn dovra' pagare un risarcimento di 20 milioni di dollari a un dipendente ammalatosi ai polmoni. L'uomo ha vinto la causa davanti ad una corte del Missouri che aveva avviato dopo essersi ammalato a causa dei vapori del burro usato per dare sapore ai chicchi di granoturco. Il caso ha indotto l'Epa a Washington ad ordinare uno studio sulle sostanze chimiche sprigionate nell'aria quando i chicchi di mais vengono fatti scoppiare con le microonde.

    un altro esempio di come le grandi concentrazioni industriali e finanziarie riescono a far votare leggi per privilegiarle contro gli interessi dei cittadini......... proprio da parte di coloro che vengono eletti per tutelarli....
    ma la chiamano democrazia.....
    se l'europa non cambia sistema conviene andarsene...altrimenti ci ridurrà come e peggio della grecia.

    ecco un link
    per lo stop processi ai McDonald's

    http://www.lifegate.it/lg/newsgene.n...256e540041f681
    Non considero che si aun favore, nel senso che gl'abbusi delle casue ad aziende e non solo negl'USA sono uno sport nazionale, non solo nel caso dei fastfood.
    Avviare una casua, per qualsialsi ragione, anche la piu' banale e' facilissimo, come ad esempio quello del caffe caldo (a meno che la signora non volesse un caffe freddo). L'industria delle Law Suit e' molto fiorente ed abbusata, sono anni che si parla di metterci dei paletti.
    Fermo restando quelle cause avviate per reali probblemi.
    Da quello che ho potuto leggere nel tuo link, lo spirito della legge e' quello della responsabilita' individuale, ovvero in linea con quasi tutto il modus operanti della vita negl' USA.
    Bisogna vedere fino a che punto le cause non sono piu' praticabili, ma da quel link non si riesce a vedere.

    Fat People Beware -- Government Wants to Help: Andrew Ferguson
    March 16 (Bloomberg) -- Last week was a huge week for overweight people -- with fat-related stories spilling out of the headlines, spreading like mayo over the front pages of the nation's newspapers and jiggling like some maniacal creme brulee across the screens of the evening news.

    The biggest of the big news was that the U.S. federal government, motivated as always by the deepest humanitarian impulses, is going to redouble efforts to help the country's fat people. This can mean only one thing: They should run for their lives -- assuming they can.

    In one of those panzer-like public-relations attacks at which government flacks excel, the office of the secretary of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Food and Drug Administration colluded in a carefully timed release of information designed to grab the maximum publicity for their saintly deeds.

    The flurry of activity was touched off on Tuesday, when the Journal of the American Medical Association published results of a study conducted by the CDC. Students of this art form know that government agencies seldom assemble data into a published study for the purpose of announcing that everything's cool and we can all get back to business.

    Sense of Fun

    Government studies spell bad news, almost always. And so it was with the gloomily titled ``Actual Causes of Death in the United States, 2000,'' which found that obesity is leading to 400,000 deaths a year, and counting.

    ``Deaths due to poor diet and physical inactivity rose by 33 percent over the past decade,'' read the news release, ``and may soon overtake tobacco as the leading preventable cause of death'' in the U.S.

    ``This is a tragedy,'' CDC Director Julie Gerberding told reporters. It is also, she said, deploying the inevitable cliche, ``a wake-up call.''

    The wake-up call may have been tragic, but not so tragic that the government could resist putting together what it called a ``tongue-in-cheek'' and ``humorous'' advertising campaign to call attention to it.

    The new TV ads, said the press release, ``show typical Americans finding `love handles,' double chins, and other unwanted body parts in public places....'' You just can't stop those health bureaucrats from having fun.

    Plans and More Plans

    The ads were introduced Tuesday by HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson on the heels of the CDC study, which he also used as the occasion to announce a ``Strategic Plan for NIH Obesity Research.'' NIH has seen its obesity-research funding rise to a planned budget of $440 million next year from $378 million in fiscal year 2003.

    Of course, the NIH Strategic Plan is not to be confused with the FDA's ``action plan'' designed ``to cover critical dimensions of the obesity problem,'' which was announced Wednesday by something called the Obesity Working Group. (Bet they have short lunch breaks.)

    The OWG offered no fewer than 25 recommendations, including a call for research into ``the relationship between obesity and food consumption patterns.''

    There is one other element to a well-orchestrated government campaign like the one that attended the CDC obesity study: activist groups must denounce the government efforts as insufficient.

    Deck Chairs

    Such a claim not only pleases government employees, who are thus inspired to find ever more ways to keep busy, but also underscores the continuing need for activist groups.

    ``The administration is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic,'' said Michael Jacobsen, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Science in the Public Interest, deploying a cliche, of his own. Jacobsen's group calls for a ``fat tax'' on unhealthy foods, government subsidies for healthy foods, tighter restrictions on food advertising, and much more.

    It's likely, however, that Jacobsen was just being a sourpuss. Much in the government's campaign last week should encourage him and his colleagues.

    Consider Thompson's remark, ``We need to tackle America's weight issues as aggressively as we're addressing smoking and tobacco.'' Given that the campaign against tobacco has grown to include restrictions on private behavior unimaginable even a decade ago, Jacobsen might rightfully conclude that the anti- obesity movement is going in his direction.

    Time to Sue

    Of course, there will be occasional defeats along the way. Last year Jacobsen penned a little essay, ``A Time to Sue?,'' calling for lawyers to sue food companies and restaurants on behalf of people whom ``Big Food'' has made fat.

    The widely noted essay may have inadvertently led to the only bit of good news for fat people last week.

    By a vote of 276 to 139, the House of Representatives passed a bill supported by Big Food, the ``Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act,'' which would bar lawsuits that seek compensation for obesity from restaurants where the plaintiff has eaten. A similar bill, with the equally gimmicky title ``Common Sense Consumption Act,'' awaits action in the Senate.

    Why is the bill's passage good news for obese and overweight people? Because alone among the government's many initiatives on their behalf, it treats them as adults -- autonomous individuals who are responsible for what and where they eat, and how often, and who are bound to accept the consequences of their decisions.

    There used to be a word for such people: ``citizens.'' And they didn't like being nagged.

    Fanno gli studi sui vapori dei pop corn e se ne fottono delle tonnellate di uranio impoverito che hanno scaricato/scaricano in giro per il mondo.
    Sono veramente assurdi.
