Question: Why are the children in America among the most obese in the world?

Answer: Money

The Food and┬áBeverage Industry has doubled their lobbyist spending in the last 3 years, winning war after war with our “out of shape” government at both state and federal levels.

Despite overwhelming proof that obesity is the most serious of all health risks,  junk food commercials targeted at our kids continue to be aired.

Does our government care? We can chew the fat on that subject in another article soon.

But in the meantime, check out this article at Reuters- in this report you’ll see why our government doesn’t have the “stomach” for the fight, and why big business has “tipped the scales” in favor of fat for our flubbering kids.
