Congress Rules That Pizza Sauce Counts as a Vegetable

Does that look like a healthy school lunch to you?

Do you think pizza sauce counts as a vegetable? Well, according to Congress, pizza sauce still counts as a vegetable.  It seems that Congress wants to keep pizza and french fries on school lunches across the country. Now I’m not against kids having pizza and french fries on occasion, but should pizza sauce really count as a vegetable? Recently, the Obama administration proposed healthier school lunches, so clearly Congress disagrees with the president.

If you don’t think school lunches should be healthier, go eat one.

The 10 Cancer Commandments

October 20, 2011 Health, Problems, Solutions No Comments

Cancer has been around forever and has not shown any signs of leaving any time soon. It has killed so many. How much more will it take? How much more can we take?

Personally, I would rather be doing other things right now than to have to watch my grandmother on the frontlines battling cancer… again, from 2,000 miles away. In fact, I just got a call two days ago from my siblings telling me grandma was rushed to the hospital again for some issues due to her diagnosis. Cancer is a beast!

After the jump, the homie Chuck Creekmur from AllHipHop allows his mother Syliva, a survivor of 20 years, to give us all some rather inspiring advice on how to identify and defeat cancer… Obey These Commandments!!!
