Child Abuse, Know It Alls, Welfare and Obesity…

By now you’ve all read or heard about the article written by Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard-affiliated Children’s Hospital Boston, where in he claims that parents of obese children are guilty of child abuse.  He’s calling for state intervention and removal of the child to foster care because in his opinion its obvious that the parents are incapable of caring for their child.  Of course he tempers his statement by saying that “State intervention ‘ideally will support not just the child but the whole family, with the goal of reuniting child and family as soon as possible. That may require instruction on parenting,’.”

What the hell?  This guy thinks that parents are what, shoving crappy food down their kid’s throats?  Let’s be perfectly honest.  This learned man, this professor, this doctor, has a bias, a prejudice if you will, against people on welfare, against the poor and underprivileged.  After all, those are the people who’s children are obese.  Those are the people who can’t, don’t, or refuse to feed their children good healthy food.

Ok, I’ll be honest about myself.  I have ranted about the poor feeding their kids crap food.  I’ve ranted about people claiming they can’t feed their families good healthy meals on the money they get from social services every month.  An article several months ago set me off because the woman interviewed said she couldn’t feed her family a healthy diet on $600 a month.  I figured out in short order how to do it.  But I also understand that most of these parents are trying their best with the information they have.

I mean really, this doctor is missing the disease because like the rest of his profession he’s more focused on the symptoms.  Guess what!?!  You can’t cure anything if you just treat the symptoms.

The problem isn’t the children.

The problem isn’t the parents.

The problem isn’t even the social services system.

So, what do I see that this doctor is missing?

What I see is really simple and yet largely complex.

As for those poor people that “abuse” their children, the people that Dr. Ludwig dislikes so much that he advocates taking the children away and breaking up families thereby emotionally scaring the children even more regarding their weight.  Those children are handicapped by the fact that their one “nutritionally sound” meal a day is provided by the school.  WAIT A MOMENT!   I’ve talked about this before.  The “nutritionally sound” meals offered by the schools is utter crap provided by companies like Sodexo.  The same company that provides food for prisons.  A typical lunch in my daughter’s school is something like; chicken nuggets, french fries, chocolate, strawberry, or plain milk, and some canned fruit. Nothing fresh, all prepackaged.  I asked the principal when I saw the salad bar setup, and she told me they offer salad bar 2 or 3 times a month.  Pancakes or waffles and sausage are another common lunch choice in the schools and guess what, this is offered more often than that salad bar every month.


But what got us these crap lunches in schools?  I talked about that before when I wrote about the lie of the food pyramid.  And now they’ve changed that to be a plate showing that we should eat certain portions of food groups.  Its the same information, in the same proportions, just laid out in a different way.  And its put out by the same USDA that put out the food pyramid.  And they are lying to us.

Next, ask any 2 year old what the golden arches are and they’ll know right away.  Ask a 4 year old who are Trix for.  They’ll be able to tell you.  Somehow, even kids who are never exposed to television know these things.  This is a MAJOR PLAGUE on our children.  Look at this one Doctor Ludwig.  The advertising and public relations parasites who are promoting the poisoning of our nation are a huge part of the obesity problem.

Here is the true face of the evil afflicting our children

Julio Iglesia and Ronald McDonald

No, not Julio Iglesia, Ronald McDonald.  From Ron’s Wikipedia page:

“The smile known around the world,” Ronald McDonald is second only to Santa Claus in terms of recognition. (According to one survey, 96% of all school kids in the United States of America recognize Ronald (stunning-stuff.com)).”

And they have been using this clown to push their crap in ever larger portions down our throats for the past 48 years!  No wonder people think clowns are scary.  They are, but the killer clowns don’t come from outer space.

Then there’s my other most hated figure.

Chester Cheeta:      



Does he remind you of anyone?   


Yea, just put a cigarette in Chester’s mouth and we can kill our children in two ways. Hey, why not put a martini in his hand and cover all our bases.  Why is it that parents were so outraged that the cigarette industry should turn to a cartoon character for advertising but could care less that junk food, fast food crap, and high sugar cereals are advertised to their children with cartoons and freaking clowns!  And it is everywhere.  From the breakfast table to the dinner table.  You could literally serve kids all day on cartoon characters!

Breakfast?  The Trix rabbit, or Lucky Charms Leprechaun.

Lunch?   How about the cartoon kids on the Oscar Mayer Lunchables box.

Snacks?  Let’s hear it for Chester.

Dinner?  Kid Cuisine and ConAgra’s, umm, penguin, I think.

Dessert?  Welcome the Keebler Elves


Dr. Ludwig get your head out of your ass and stop blaming the victims.  Put the blame where the blame is due.  Yes the parents COULD do better, but no one ever taught them how to eat properly.  Doctor, you and your ilk, are also part of the problem.  You find it so easy to blame the victims, to look only at the symptoms, to see only the surface of the problem, that nothing you ever do or say on the subject will ever make a difference.
