Hold the Lo Mein

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, the lobby group behind banning all sorts of fun and tasty things, now has a new target: Chinese food!
The typical Chinese restaurant menu is a sea of nutritional no-nos, a consumer group has found. A plate of General Tso's 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 group has not yet proposed banning Chinese food, but I would not be surprised if that is around the corner, as their typical strategy to start a ban campaign is with a "shot across the bow." And fans of Mexican and Italian food you cannot relax either, as CSPI has concluded that those two cuisines are even worse,
because their food is higher in saturated fat, which can increase the risk of heart disease.
