"In conjunction with a mayoral task force and the Health Department,
the Department of Homeless Services recently started enforcing
new nutritional rules for food served at city shelters.
Since DHS can’t assess the nutritional content of donated food,
shelters have to turn away good Samaritans."
"DHS Commissioner Seth Diamond says the ban on food donations is consistent
with Mayor Bloomberg’s emphasis on improving nutrition for all New Yorkers.
A new interagency document controls what can be served at facilities-
dictating serving sizes as well as salt, fat and calorie contents,
plus fiber minimums and condiment recommendations."
"The city also cites food-safety issues with donations"
Since when did Bloomberg become a health expert?
Did he ever read any scientific studies on salt?
Of Course Not !! If He did, he would know that there has never been a well documentated study
proving that a High salt intake will cause Hypertension.
What does he know about fat content? Does he know that there different type of fats?
why doesn't he call for the banning of Genetically Modified foods since they have been shown to cause multiple organ failure, infertility, and cancer!!
why doesn't he remove sodium fluoride from our drinking water since it has repeatedly shown to cause low IQ levels, thyroid disfunction, and bone cancer?
Does he know that some fats are beneficial for you?
Know lets cut to the chase....Why is it really illegal to feed homless people?
Is it because Big Government likes people depending on them so that they can look like the only heroes?
Is it because they like controlling every aspect of your life?
