Barry Popkin says government intervention or a manipulation of pricing on "unhealthy foods" may be the way to reduce the fat:
"But all countries have failed to address the obesity "boom," Popkin said. Food prices may be used to manipulate people's diets and tilt them towards healthier options, he suggested.
For instance, if we charge money for every calorie of soft drink and fruit drink that was consumed, people would consume less of it. If we subsidize fruit and vegetable production, people would consume more of it and we would have a healthier diet," Popkin said."
A recent interview with writer/author Michael Pollan says we have to become "food detectives" to discover what we are really eating in America -- mostly corn and sugar. Then of course, there are the cows fed chicken poop, which we then eat, and that supermarkets are the worst places to get good food. Yeah, and which government agency decided to allow for crap and meat to be fed to chickens and cows??

And put that bag of "go-food" down and take a dang walk, people.
Or wait until Nanny Government, pushed by industrial needs and fearful consumers, dictates what your daily intake of calories will be.
