Unhealthful trend

Saturday, 1 Dec 2012, by

“General Mills Touts Sugary Cereal as Healthy Kids’ Breakfast,” said a headline in The Wall Street Journal, prompting a reader to observe, “Maybe so, but if they keep eating those sug­ary cereals, the kids aren’t going to be so healthy anymore. Why can’t people make the distinction between healthy and healthful?”

Such purists, a.k.a. prescriptivists or, less charitably, nitpickers, snoots, or scolds, insist that people are healthy or unhealthy and foods or conditions are healthful or unhealthful.
