Potato chips and french fries could soon come with a warning label in California if the state's top attorney prevails in a lawsuit filed against nine fast food chains and snack-food makers.

For some reason this reminds me of the whole allar on Apples noise that happened maybe a decade ago. There was a whole big deal about allar(sp) witch was I think a pesticide used on apples could cause cancer when the truth was you had to eat an impossibly high number of apples to even have a slight risk of getting cancer.

Ever notice how we always fall in love? We never climb gently in to love, or step lightly in to love. If love is such a good thing than why is it described as a fall.

As I've said before, why put warning labels on fries about trace chemicals? It's the salt and grease that we should warn people about!
