Move Over M & Ms
As we've been learning in Health class, food products loaded with sugar are detrimental to our health. Eating lots of sugar can lead to obesity, diabetes, emotional issues, among others. I agree with the city of Chicago in their idea of replacing sugary foods in vending machines with more healthy options. It would be wonderful if I could go to vending machine on campus and purchase a bag of nuts, instead of a bag of Hot Cheetos. However, I wonder if this might be infringing on people's freedom of choice?
Should people be allowed to have the choice to eat healthy or not healthy, or should cities impose good health upon them?
