Obesity is an extremely complex issue and in my more cynical moments I really wonder if we have gotten so far from what is real and natural about the life cycle on earth how we can find our way back. Think about a lot of the food we's manufactured from components from the far reaches of the globe (recent pet food problem really opened my eyes, cough syrup story in South America too).

There is money to be made in food manufacture (and it is hugely subsidized so we don't directly "see" the cost). There is money to be made in health care, insurance and pharmaceuticals....also the derth of "diet products", weight loss programs, gyms, books. ....and we all play a huge role in this because we try to solve the problem at a level where it isn't seen for what it IS. Hope springs eternal with the newest book, program, surgery.

It's so much more complex. We need to look at where our food came from and how we are living on an hour to hour basis.
