John Stossel on the Food Police


Who becomes a regulator except people who want to regulate? Some come from activist groups that hate industry. Some come from industry and want to convert their government job into a higher-paying industry job. Some just want attention. They know that saying, "X will kill you," gets more attention than saying that X is probably safe. The moral issue of force versus persuasion, writes John Stossel, applies even if all the progressives' ideas about nutrition are correct.
