A yes yet again another news item has forced me to bring back the semi regular eediat ting dat feature. Been a while since the last one.
This time its the news story from last week about a doctor and a consumers group that are suing KFC.
Yep they claim that meals at KFC can be "startingly high in trans fat" and they are trying to stop KFC from serving foods that can lead to a heart attack. They say KFC needs to warn its customers on the dangers of its offerings.
What gets me is that they claim because KFC doesn't openly say that the chicken is fried in partially hydrogenated oil loaded with trans fats that folk are unaware that KFC can be unhealthy.
Ok is this just me? The chain used to be openly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken never Kentucky "slow roasted on a Foreman grill so that the fat drips out and its (possibly) healthy " chicken or Kentucky "steamed in a low fat au jus" chicken no the word FRIED was big and bold in the middle of the name.
And with the bombardment of the health conscious messages we have been getting for the last decade or two everyone knows now that fried chicken in over abundance is bad for you. I mean don't be fooled cause the Colonel have nuff chat bout 12 'erbs and spices, the chicken still greasy, fried and breaded, so you're taking your life into your hands.
And even if the Colonel decide he using another type of oil to fry the chicken it still going to be bad for you so what's the point here.
They going force the Colonel to start baking his chicken or shut down his shop or what? All the chat when you done away with the colonel, people will find something equally unhealthy to eat if they really choose. You going to ban fry chicken and outlaw big pots of sizzling oil too. All that going to do is set up an underground market in smuggled fried chicken from Canada (I trying to get in on that action) and lead me to start coming up with nuff 'why did the chicken cross the border' jokes. Or maybe we going make the colonel jerk his chicken?
Point is people still know it unhealthy and will eat nuff of it so suing the Colonel aint really going to help. Who you think you informing that the colonel unhealthy? Everybody should know that by now cause is not like the man main dish is Kentucky green salad made wid 12 sauces and dressings is FRIED chicken and all you have to do is see all the grease come off of it for any body with any common sense will realize that this might not be the most healthy meal.
I don't know but seems like a big waste a time to me. Eediat ting dat!
