The Perils of Pizza
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) , also known as the "food police" has recently released an expose on pizza that's quite frightening to any of us who are trying to watch our weight.
For example, the two slices Pizza Hut Big New Yorker Sausage Pizza weighs in at a hefty 1140 calories, 3240 mg of sodium, and 66 grams of fat! That''s as much as a T-bone steak dinner with salad and a baked potato. To think that in my heavier days I used to eat a whole one of these by myself boggles my mind!
This is another example of how fast food is killing us. Obesity is rapidly climbing the charts in cause of death in America, and he McDonalds, Pizza Huts, etc. of the world need to take a good hard look in the mirror for the cause. Fast food companies have always made cost, convenience, and taste priorities in developing their product. They need to take some social responsibility and add nutrition to that mix.
Otherwise, in 15 years, fast food companies my find themselves on the wrong side of a tobacco style lawsuit.
Not to mention that it's the right thing to do.
