Netflix - Why Obesity is America's Greatest Threat
« on: April 29, 2012, 01:12:25 PM »
I'm watching this program on TV today - They got it about half right. This is a very interesting program, but almost 2 hours long. Showing the real problem as big bucks swaying food choices, both in school vending machines and school lunches, the cost of food in grocery stores, and advertising. One school nutritionist said that the problem in schools is that the federal gov't will only reimburse them for lunches that are over a certain number of calories, and the healthy foods don't come up with enough calories to be reimbursed, but the unhealthy foods get the bucks coming in.

They showed a 12 yr old having lipo to get rid of 35 lbs of fat. She gained it all back within 7 years. So sad. Just think - we can dump 35 pounds with FTS and it doesn't cost us thousands of dollar$. We know how to keep it off. Thank you, AGAIN, Doug and Umpa!

So true Sarah!... It's always about the dollars!

And this is the same gov't that tells us they can solve our healthcare crisis?
If it wasn't so pathetic, it would be funny.
Fact is, it makes me angry! >:(
What you do today is what matters!

It upsets me, too, so I usually avoid anything to do with the gov't. I was curious as to what this program pointed to as the culprit, so I watched it. There were some big health advocate names interviewed, and they all know what the problem is and that big money has a death-grip on the public, but no one wants to take them on. I just can't get on my soapbox. Suffice to say, "AAARGH!!!"
