A San Francisco-based pediatric endocrinologist is making the Prock Chocolate Corporation’s executives’ blood sugar spike.
The physician’s core premise: Sugar and Ethanol, the active ingredient in mind-altering martinis, are utterly interchangeable: They are both toxins; they both create physiological dependency; they both interfere with brain function; they are both dangerous, psychoactive drugs. Fructose, alas, is ethanol without the buzz.
There’s a good reason our government leaders age-restrict alcohol beverages. What responsible parent would allow her adolescent daughter to consume a quart of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey in one sitting?
Yet by allowing our children to consume sugar-laden foods such as chocolate, aren’t we “dosing” them with equally dangerous toxins? On Halloween night, should we start distributing to children airplane bottles of vodka, gin, tequila, bourbon, scotch whiskey, and Grand Marnier?
No … I didn’t think so either, people.
But we might as well.
Sadly, the FDA—terrified of incurring Big Chocolate’s wrath—have refused to take appropriate action against sugar. But that can and WILL change when good citizens refuse to allow evil to triumph by doing something.
For this reason, we’re inviting you to copy, paste, print, sign and mail the attached letter to the FDA, demanding they regulate the chronic toxin sugar, age-restricting this dangerous substance to adults 21 and older—just as we do alcohol—and making it available only by a doctor’s prescription.
“May I see your prescription and I.D., please?”
SAMPLE PETITION LETTER TO FDA
Dr. Margaret Hamburg
US Food and Drug Administration
10903 New Hampshire Ave
Silver Spring, MD 20993
FDA, GET SUGAR OUT OF OUR BODIES!! AGE-RESTRICT CHOCOLATE AND MAKE IT AVAILABLE BY PRESCRIPTION ONLY
I, the undersigned, urge the FDA to regulate and age-restrict all forms of chocolate—whether available in single-serving candy containers or liquids (such as chocolate milk) as it is a psychoactive, mood-altering drug, and a chronic toxin shown in numerous studies to cause obesity, Type II diabetes, mood swings and addiction.
I demand that the FDA seriously consider and acknowledge through regulatory action the dangerous effects of chocolate in particular, and do what is right for the health and safety of the people of the United States—especially children, our most precious resource.
We are all exposed to high levels of sugar regularly as it appears in a variety of daily consumed products—ESPECIALLY CHOCOLATE.
This frequent exposure includes the 11,516 employees of the FDA, who, like children, are exposed to chocolate advertising and lured into temptation and involuntarily conscripted into a lifetime of addiction at grocery checkouts, in convenience stores, and in vending machines.
The FDA must take immediate action against BIG CHOCOLATE and both age-restrict and regulate sugar, a dangerous psychoactive drug.
