Turning point on US obesity epidemic?

From T.P.M. Barnett Turning point on US obesity epidemic?
...
What we eat in America is what is most profitable for US food companies and ag corps to sell - plain and simple. We subsidize grains big time and do virtually nothing for fruits and vegetables.


We've got a nanny state alright, and she's telling us that fat is good.


I admire Michelle Obama for working this issue. Exactly the right focus for her right now. Because when we solve the tripling of obesity that's unfolded over the past three decades (stunning, really), we solve a good deal of our healthcare crisis.
My bold, reading the rest some cities are actually growing slightly less fat kids, oh happy day!
