Does this really benefit people's lives
Finally!More reason to pick up the phone up and call Pizza hut (what flavour to order.. hmm)

School cafeterias do not have a free pass to serve pizza; the food item alone in all it's greasy goodness is not considered a vegetable.Food is measured and classified in two way - by volume and by nutritional value. The most recent nutritional guidelines stated that half a cup of tomato puree or paste would be equal to one serving of vegetables. However, when something is defined as a vegetable, it is reassessed according to nutritional value. Thus now, according to purely nutritional value, one-eighth of a cup of tomato pure or paste is equivalent in nutritional value to a serving of vegetables. This is all the bill has done. All the media attention has really blown this out of proportion. Pizza really has nothing to do with it.
MSG has a widespread reputation for eliciting a variety of symptoms, ranging from headache to dry mouth to flushing. Since the first report of the so-called Chinese restaurant syndrome 40 years ago, clinical trials have failed to identify a consistent relationship between the consumption of MSG and the constellation of symptoms that comprise the syndrome. Furthermore, MSG has been described as a trigger for asthma and migraine headache exacerbations, but there are no consistent data to support this relationship. Although there have been reports of an MSG-sensitive subset of the population, this has not been demonstrated in placebo-controlled trials.
