CalorieLab posted a graf on Kansas’s decision to emulate Arkansas — and this time in a good way. Turns out AR has been battling fatassery in its kids by using BMI to more objectively measure how plump the little toadstools have become. KS might decide to do the same thing.
What I find striking about this is that BMI is science-based, not faith-based. That Kansas is planning to use real science in its schools is sure to offend someone.
Where are the defenders of ID (Intelligent Dieting)? Where are the proponents of WWJE (What Would Jesus Eat)? What about the hardline adherents to strict Torah dietary laws?
After all, the Bible is every bit as outspoken about what modern Americans should eat as it is about the facts of evolution, full of information that’s relevant to the Twinkie– and tofu-eating every bit as much as it is to molecular biologists and DNA mappers. Right? Right?
