    And all this means what exactly?
    They didn't have that problem 30 years ago. It's not where they live, but that they are eating too much.

    Doubtful. Peoples' habits have changed.

    Ummm, yes. I grew up on it. It's nothing new on the scene.

    yes but it wasn't in everything. Look if your going to sit here and claim that the food industry is not responsible for making America fat then your high.

    This made me chuckle. Lizzie sounds like one of those people who doesn't get out much. I'm willing to bet that like a large percentage of the population she probably has a weight problem herself. Maybe a few pounds overweight. However she'd never think that it's because the food she's eating is actually made unhealthily but it's what she's eating. As if all the gross stuff they pump into what Wal-Mart passes as "produce" is somehow healthy for you. The reality is that the majority of Americans really have no clue about what good food is. They can't buy local because it's expensive. So they go to their local big box grocers and think that eating a banana sprayed with a bunch of chemicals is somehow healthier than a box of cereal filled with HFCS.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I had one thread here about USA being partly third world. The reply I got was it's a cultural issue. So its nothing to do with race.

    I refuse to regard anyone with a computer, smart phone, ipod, or car as impoverished. Did you just buy your son $160 Michael Jordans? Then I don't care about you.
    45 million on food stamps (minus out the food stamp cheats}. They would be into starvation if not for the food stamps. Those gadgets can be easily purchased with a credit card while living beyond your means.
