Chinese restaurant food unhealthy, study says
Menus loaded with sodium, saturated fat and calories

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17718517/

Quote:
The typical Chinese restaurant menu is a sea of nutritional no-nos, a consumer group has found.

A plate of General Tsoís chicken, for example, is loaded with about 40 percent more sodium and more than half the calories an average adult needs for an entire day.

The battered, fried chicken dish with vegetables has 1,300 calories, 3,200 milligrams of sodium and 11 grams of saturated fat.
Thatís before the rice (200 calories a cup). And after the egg rolls (200 calories and 400 milligrams of sodium).
In some ways, CSPI's Liebman said, Italian and Mexican restaurants are worse for your health, because their food is higher in saturated fat, which can increase the risk of heart disease.

While Chinese restaurant food is bad for your waistline and blood pressure ó sodium contributes to hypertension ó it does offer vegetable-rich dishes and the kind of fat thatís not bad for the heart.
Here is more, boy we are some abusing folks.

>You can still smoke in dedicated bars Al (i.e. bars without restaurants)

I thought that was the old Shreveport law, but that the new state law banned it even in bars unless there was video poker.

That sounds so stupid.. it's probably true.. so what's the dang difference between a bar, and a bar with video poker, that they would allow smoking ??

TGIF !

The "Louisiana Smokefree Air Act," sponsored by Sen. Rob Marionneaux, D-Livonia, prohibits smoking in most business around Louisiana, leaving people to do as they'd like in their homes and cars (unless they're using their homes as day care facilities).

However, there are a few other major exceptions where smoking still is allowed: bars, casinos, horse racing tracks, off-track betting facilities, bingo halls, hotel rooms, tobacco stores, Mardi Gras ball facilities and assisted living and nursing home facilities where people have requested to be in smoking rooms. Also, customers can smoke on outdoor patios at restaurants, and prisoners can smoke in Louisiana's jails until 2009.

Yep, if you read the statute, it clearly says just "a bar" is exempt.

And it is illegal in LA to smoke with a kid under 13 in the car, regardless of the windows being up or down.

Didn't know this either. I learn something new every day.

I sure would not take my kids in a room or car full of smoke. This law does protect the kids and the parents should know better anyway.

I would smoke if it were not a health issue.

Like a lot of folks my age, back in the 70's, I smoked socially. I really didn't inhale that much, but there was a certain convivialness to bars and night clubs in those days.

Smoking was part of a 'friendly socialness' to have along with you drink.

I always liked the aroma of the first puff of a cigarette that was lit with lighter fluid (not propane). Very aromatic.

Still we're better off without it.

Always like the smell of my uncles pipe burning. He had many different flavors to pick from.

You can't smoke on the campus of Highland Hospital. It's funny to watch employees hike to this field behind it just to smoke. You know, I'd consider giving up such a nasty habit if it were so darned hard to do and knowing it will kill me. Obviously it prevents these folks brain cells from working properly.

Quit the hard way

I'm so old and cheap that I quit because I wasn't going to pay the dollar per pack they had just gone too.... in the seventys I think.
However my brother smoked for over 35 years. He quit on friday October 19th at a young age... too young I think.

Howela you and yours will be in our prayers. I do not know what you faith or religion is but I believe your brother is doing fine now that he has returned home to his Creator. I have a Bible verse that I hope will be uplifting Sir.

Thank you

Thank you everyone... It is comforting to hear kind words from friends. The doctors said the massive stroke that killed Rick was directly related to his heavy smoking all those years. Standing next to my brothers grave I can smell the salt marsh and through the trees can see Battery creek, across which is Port Royal that my brother and I both loved so much.
