Is that Double Whopper Getting You Fat?
The House has passed legislation to prevent you from suing the fast food mongels for getting you fat.
The "Cheeseburger Bill," as it has been nicknamed in Congress, would block civil
lawsuits against food manufacturers in federal or state courts by individuals
claiming that their health condition was caused by the manufacturers' food.
"As one judge put it, if a person knows or should know that eating
copious orders of super-sized McDonald's products is unhealthy and could result
in weight gain, it is not the place of the law to protect them from their own
excesses," said James Sensenbrenner, chairman of Judiciary Committee.
