Warthog: Hmmm. Companies reduce trans-fats from their products, and HFCS starts getting replaced with natural sugars. Obesity starts to go down. Surely there can't be a connection.


Or it could be that food cost so damn much now days.

My anecdotal observance of my both of my son's classmates is that there are not the overabundance of fat kids I expected. The school also has a farm to school program where a local farmer donates produce for a midday snack, and they get that instead of Cheetos or Lay's or Fritos.

I still see a lot of fat kids, but I've even been seeing skinny kids with obese parents. The parents might realize they're farked, but maybe their kids also are getting the message about being careful to not get fat.

//Or it could all be related to the hunger problem America has, and the number of families without food security is growing. Thanks trickle-down economics!
