'A restaurant-killing, job-killing strategy' 

 
CONSUMER and BUSINESS COALITION HITS BLOOMBERG'S SALT REDUCTION IN FOOD SCHEME        

 
NEW YORK CITY-- A coalition of consumers and businesses is calling out Mayor Michael Bloomberg  "on outrageous and irresponsible comments comparing salt to asbestos."  The coalition, My Food My Choice, references Bloomberg's defense of his scheme for a 25 percent salt reduction in manufactured foods sold in New York City, where he compared reducing the popular seasoning with rooting out deadly asbestos in the classroom.
 
According to Orit Sklar, national spokeswoman of the coalition My Food My Choice, "Since manufacturers would have to change their entire food product line forNew York City because of this unwarranted attack on salt, Bloomberg is affecting food policy for the entire country."
 
"Bloomberg claims this is a 'voluntary' campaign, but his hysterical comments and the comparison to asbestos are especially a stab in the back to the city's ethnic cuisine, which is world reknown," Sklar says. "Furthermore, salt has important properties that preserve and stabilize food, make it taste better, and it is a nutrient essential to life."  
 
Noma Dumich, the former owner of  Sel Et Poivre ('Salt & Pepper'), which is now owned by Noma's daughter and son in-law, in Manhattan, believes the mayor is pushing a restaurant-killing and job-killing strategy. 
 
"A growing number of city restaurant owners are joining in a rising protest against Bloomberg," said Dumich.  "We have the right to serve the food that our customers love. I'm very worried what Bloomberg's campaign means to my family and other city restaurants, and how it will affect the millions of diners and tourists who visit New York City for its excellent food,"  Dumich said.

Well, it seems to me nobody can prove if salt is harmful or not. There are different opinions on this. That is why nobody has any right to reduce the usage of salt in the food.

In my opinion salt is needing, but only in appropriate quantity. Because all the food we are eating is healthy only until the proportion of all micro elements is in balance!

I totally agree with Bloomberg, if they lower the amount of salt in the classroom, this may lower asbestos for students. Since the flavor is so great with our taste buds, people want to eat the food constantly.

I agree that it is essential that control. Unhealthy snacks are the leading cause of heart disease and others. I think that attacking the root of the problem with the healthiest foods in the future reflect fewer cases of disease and ill health of the population.

It was a very good mod. Too bad that some people in this community breaks models from other games without permission to add credits and also use them.
Its at least much better as well ask, and I will show that it is respecting copyright laws.
Rise of mods like this, you do not have permission to use the files from another project, only hurt everyone in the community, and make future collaborations with other project impossible.
