Huckabee on Health

Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, in his newest public health crusade and with the assistance of DHHS, has established a guideline for "health" in Arkansas's first annual Healthy Arkansas Guidebook, where they awarded the first "Healthy Arkansas Restaurant Award Winners", of which numerous fast-food restaurants actually one. Here is on the subject.

I appreciate the approach taken by the state of Arkansas -- in an attempt to correct the supposed 'asymmetric information' through marketing and differentiation rather than coercion. If there is such a thing as responsible government, I think folks should take a lesson from the Governor of Arkansas.

Are there other arguments, beyond paternalism and asymmetric information, for regulating restaurants, fast-foods, and ‘junk foods’?
