    Taking it personally doesn't make any sense.

    Yes I take it personally when someone tells me what to buy with money I earn, I'm funny like that. Comparing "just say no" an anti drug slogan to "eat what I tell you" is absurd. It's obvious who's ass you kiss. Or I should say asses, plural.

    im 100% for healthy food but again there are costs with it,id say most people can afford,alot choose not to afford it and some would rather throw something in a microwave than actually cook.
    Now I'm sick-you mentioned frozen lasagna. That's a heart attack popsicle, right there.

    My point is there is a lot of misinformation and tradition that leads to a diet that's very unhealthy for us.

    This is a better way to eat. The beans cooked with meat flavor, but very little of the fat.

    One First Lady is telling people to say no to drugs, another is telling folks to say no to poor diets. Sounds pretty similar, to me.

    A lot more people die from disease associated with the western diet than from drug abuse. Not a bad thing to educate people on, those with the ability to learn.

    This is a better way to eat. The beans cooked with meat flavor, but very little of the fat.
    when you make bean soup youll be shocked at how something so gross looking uncooked turns into something so delicious,you can also substitute ham bone if you have none for a few strips of bacon,though bacon would increase the fat content and doesnt taste as good as the flavor ham bone delivers.

    when its done which actually takes about 15 hours to cook the beans right you take the corn bread and crumble it into the bean soup,you have flavor and filling in one meal,not the most nutritional but for low fat calories it makes a great dinner or lunch as long as you diversafy you other meals.

    Its more nutritional than many typical meals, if you think low fat content is important. Because you have a lot of the good stuff in there, vitamins and protein, but very little of the bad stuff, fat.

    But everyone knows that cocaine and cheeseburgers are bad for you. We don't need to spend millions of dollars to "teach" something that everyone knows already.

    Well, since 50% of Mississippi think Obama's birth cert is a fake... adults aren't always as bright as we would hope, in this modern world.

    Staying on Topic:

    I'd say it's an education / culture thing -- something you pass down to your kids, but each generation can improve.

    It's not an all or nothing question, I'd bet there's some studies somewhere about what percentage of parents really know how to properly feed their children, and what are the factors that lead to good nutritional habits. I would guess, but couldn't say for sure, that income level may also play a part.

    This would mean most parents are engaged in some mild form of systematic child neglect or abuse. If you know that an unhealthy diet and no exercise can lead to obesity, and you have the resources to provide a healthy diet, and just don't do it... because why?

    Not everyone knows that the high fat entrees you buy in the grocery store can be bad for you, if you eat more than a small amount.

    I think it was you that mentioned the food pyramid earlier. I believe its predecessor was the four food groups campaign that went on for many years in different forms, and was wrong. If I remember right, it had a dairy or milk food group, and there's no such thing. I don't think that misinformation has been corrected yet.

    But, big picture, the population is getting fatter every year. I don't see where the government offering information on diet and obesity is a problem.
