  • Lawsuit against fast food chains for "unhealthy" food

    I knew it would happen sooner or later since they're handing out billions to people who smoke and eventually get sick...

    Guy sues KFC, McDonalds, Wendys and Burger King

    I sure hope this gets thrown out of court with the plaintiff forced to pay for all court costs.
    Ignorance can be remedied, stupidity cannot.

    Some people are so healty-conscious they are taking all the fun out of living.

    If anyone is responsible for the client's condition it is the client. No one forces him to patronize those places. He just doesn't have the willpower to stop. If he admits that, he can't sue and get a lot of money.

        "All were regular fast-food consumers who suffer from ailments ranging from obesity to diabetes.

        The lead plaintiff, 56-year-old maintenance supervisor Caesar Barber, ate at fast-food restaurants four or five times a week and blames his fatty diet for his obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol and the two heart attacks he has suffered.

        Let's roll for truth

          "I trace it all back to the high fat, grease and salt, all back to McDonald?s, Wendy?s, Burger King ? there was no fast food I didn't eat, and I ate it more often than not because I was single, it was quick and I?m not a very good cook," Barber said in an interview with Foxnews.com.
          I think the guy should sue all the woman of the world too. He needs someone to cook for him. Idiot needs to just play in traffic a little. He needs to take his lawyer with him.

            Tobacco is a slightly different issue. Cigarettes are laced with so many additives that the makers are still denying adding or at least were denying until recently etc etc….

                It amazes me that people can eat that garbage from those establishments.

                  And fast food doesn't have additives? Both are bad for you. If someone eats the crap they(the consumers) are responsible for the results. I'm sick of whiny greedy people wanting to score big bucks off somebody else for their own bad choices.

                    Ammonia and plutonium don’t really compare to what you find in food.

                        555,OK I can believe the ammonia. I don't believe plutonium is an additive in tobacco

                          I think these things show some peoples desperation to have what they have not been able to get by work or luck.

                            Mike, tsk tsk tsk. It takes a LOT of work to figure out how to sue a corporation, and a lot of luck to win if it's a really silly suit.

                            Personally, I find myself in the undesireable position of threatening legal action against Worldcom if they don't stop harrassing me with bills for services never provided. And DOUBLE BILLING at that!

                              But, but, but, but It's NOT MYFAULT! The fast food is there! The cigarettes are there. The alcohol is there!

                              If it's there I must consume. . .
