    Food Industry a Target in Obesity Fight

    Food Industry a Target in Obesity Fight

    Mar 19, 12:00 AM (ET)

    By J.M. HIRSCH


    It's tempting to blame big food companies for America's big obesity problem. After all, they're the folks who Supersized our fries, family-portioned our potato chips and Big Gulped our sodas. There's also the billions they've spent keeping their products ever on our minds and in our mouths.

    Likened by some to the way tobacco companies seduced smokers, such practices have made the food industry the target of lawsuits and legislation seeking to yank junk food from schools and curb advertising to children.

    But some experts say neither the problem nor the solution is nearly so simple.

    Ultimately, it's up to the person to stop themselves from lifting their fat hands to their fat mouths resulting in their fat arse....

    It's all about self control....Nobody is making you eat fast food...

    Oh, and I highly recommend the documentary Super Size Me....If that doesn't stop you from eating fast food, nothing will...

    I got an idea for a new thread. "What would Cspine and Hamburglar
    do if you locked them in a room for 48 hours?"

    Fight?

    Fuck?

    or Both?



    Never mind, Cspine would have eaten him before they had chance
    to any of the above.

    Only if you're an Antarctican.

    Did I write that right, Bucky?
