Are Girl Scout Cookies Making Us Obese?

Dr. Andrew Siegel, a physician from the New York metropolitan area, has created a bit of an uproar in the Girl Scout world. Though he claims that the Girl Scouts Association is a wonderful organization that he has nothing against, he feels that the unhealthy nature of the product it sells is a major contributor to America's unhealthy state. Because the cookies are an integral part of the Girl Scouts program, he takes issue with the fact that the organization claims customers are getting a "great product."

"I feel a moral, ethical and medical imperative that this information needs to be shared and understood," said Siegel in a YouTube video he produced himself. "The combination of enriched wheat flour, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils...and high-fructose corn sweetener in the cookies is a combination for a very unhealthy existence"

People should remember that all food should be in moderation....even our tasty treats!!! That's why it's called a cookie not a healthy cardboard snack bar.
