I'm surprised you don't mention High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs) in your entries and follow-ups. Are neither of you aware of these two ingredients? Any discussion on Obesity in America without bringing up HFCS and PHO is shamefully ignorant.

With regard to Advertising to Kids by fast food restaurants: Do you feel that fast-food restaurants provide children with healthy meals? Is it okay to teach a child that a meal should come with a toy? Is it really a good idea for McDonalds to be the primary advertiser on Sesame Street?

"I do believe that more is spent on advertising of goods than of political candidates, but I do not believe goods advertising is at a lower level than political advertising. Just the opposite in many cases!"

Interesting sentence. I have had to read this more than several times.

I do not think that most people in the U.S. understand that the cost of fat has dramatically decreased over long periods of time. It did not dawn on me explicitly until this posting. This would be interesting survey research. I also do not think that most U.S. consumers understand that lower fat costs coupled with a downward sloping demand curve will inevitably result in more consumption of fat. Add to this rising real incomes over very long periods of time, and you may have an outward shift in demand for food as well.

So, logically, no wonder we have obesity.

I am going to take a knap and then read a book at Starbucks. I will try to cut back on steamed dairy products in my brew. Ah, the new economy...

Here's an interesting article on kids and schools, and how school practices seem to be making kids fatter -- it seems to be one case where policy changes could likely make a big difference.

The following appeared on Boston.com:
Headline: DIET: Study links school bake sales, food rewards, with weight problems
Date: December 5, 2005

"Schools that run bake sales and let teachers reward students with candy risk having more overweight pupils, a study in Minneapolis suggests."

Could you help me. If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read "President Can't Swim".
I am from Marshall and learning to speak English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "How to take your pets to a mexico vacation."

8-) Thanks in advance. Kora.
