“There really isn’t data to support this. I think, unfortunately, frankly, they’re not basing this on really hard science. It’s not a very scientific approach they’ve taken. … To make it a major public health effort, I think I would say it’s bizarre.” - Dr. Stanley Goldfarb of the University of Pennsylvania
Her work is not done. Michelle Obama does not see the irony in the fact that, in a country with a record number of people on food stamps, the poorest group of Americans ( low income and minorities) have an obesity problem. Yep – our poor people are too fat. Frankly, we should be proud.
But for whatever reason, the most corpulent First Lady in modern history (who happens to have a youngest daughter who is prone to beefiness as well) is obsessed with what Americans eat. Over the past few years, Michelle has decimated the public school lunch program, riddling it with nutritional guidelines that have rendered lunches inedible and ruined budgets for many school districts that are now forced to charge for lunches that children will not eat.
This week, Michelle promotes more junk science with her latest initiative that is part of the Let’s Move campaign - declaring that increasing water consumption will improve the health of kids and all Americans.
“I’ve come to realize that if we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water,” Obama said in a press release. “That’s it – it’s really that simple. Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, your energy, and the way you feel.”
Of course, medically speaking, this is crap. The idea that water “increases energy” is patently absurd. Michelle is merely copying European nations who have rolled out ridiculous unsuccessful campaigns like Britain’s Hydration for Health which was recently tagged for presenting false evidence as medical truth. Sound familiar?
In a hilarious conflict, moonbat environmentalists reject her campaign because they don’t want to see increased sales in bottled water – they are promoting tap water because they hate plastic bottles.
Bottom Line: “People drinking an extra couple of glasses of water a day are not going to be hurt in any way,” Goldfarb said. “They’re just going to pee more.”
Perhaps she should rename it the "Let's Pee Campaign"
