US government spends $174K of taxpayer money on pictures of food


Regardless of what tax bracket a person may fall under, it is fair to say Americans don’t want their tax money spent on foolishness. Unfortunately, what the American people want is not what they receive.

In a new report published by the Washington Free Beacon, it is revealed that the National Science Foundation is spending $174,792 on an anti-obesity study that involves taking pictures of food before obese people consume it.

Purdue University is overseeing the project, which is entitled, “Using Digital Images to Connect Eating Environment with Dietary Quality.” Researchers say the “fundamental question” is “where, how, and when” food is eaten.

The study, which is funded by a federal grant, is attempting to decipher the link between the eating environment and dietary quality.

“The project will use images from the food environment to address the fundamental question of where, how, and when food should be consumed to maximize health and prevent disease,” the grant states. “Monitoring the personal dietary environment and determination of environmental patterns related to dietary intake can empower both health care providers and patients to optimize evidence-based decisions.”

“This information can help individuals recognize less healthful behaviors that may be occurring in their lives,” it continues.

Dennis Michael Lynch, CEO of DML News, said, “It doesn’t matter if you’re in the top 1% of the bottom 30%, having nearly $200K spent on this sort of crap is what drives people crazy. There are Americans who are working three jobs and even still, they can’t pay the bills because their paychecks are raped by the government each week. To learn the money is being used on nonsense makes me want to pull the hair out of my head.”
