Should Heartattack Grill's owner be prosecuted?

10.03.2011, Age: 3883 days

The restaurant's motto “Taste Worth Dying For” now has taken a literal meaning. Last week, the 260-kilogram spokesman for the Heartattack Grill died. With obesity rapidly rising to become one of the main causes of death worldwide, this grill unashamedly promotes unhealthy diets.

Blair River, the Heartattack Grill's spokesman, weighed 575 pounds (260 kg). He died last week at the age of 29. The advertisement videos featuring the hefty gourmet have not been removed from the grill's website yet. Heartattack Grill continues to give free food to customers weighing more than 350 pounds (160 kg). The restaurant's owner, "Dr Jon" boasts “I run the only honest restaurant in America. Hey, this is bad for you, and it’s gonna kill you.”

The grill's menu features some fine culinary specialities including Double, Triple and Quadruple Bypass Burgers, all-you-can-eat french fries, deep fried in lard. The clientele is called patients, who are served by almost anorectic "nurses". Very funny indeed.

This begs the question if, in a country where hard drug peddlers are fiercely prosecuted, selling such obviously unhealthy food should not be equally declared illegal.
