Feds tell court they can decide what you eat

Well, duh. That's because you're a slave. And you're not smart enough to make your own food choices. Aspartame is good for you. MSG is good for you. Sodium fluoride is good for you. Raw milk...well, be thankful the government stands between you and the raw milk, with all its nutrients not destroyed by pasteurization, and not turned into poison by homogenization, with added bovine growth hormone that causes multiple health problems, particularly in children. Thank you, god government, for saving us from the raw milk.

    Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no "fundamental right" to obtain what food they choose.

    The brief was filed April 26 in support of a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund over the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's ban on the interstate sale of raw milk.

    "There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds," states the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.

    "Plaintiffs' assertion of a 'fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families' is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish," the government has argued.
