We hear a lot about how people just need to make better dietary choices in order to address the obesity epidemic facing our country. However, the fattest states would have been the thinnest just 20 years ago. There is more at work here than just personal responsibility. We need action at the societal and public policy level.
I pulled together this video to show how shocking the national trends have been since 1990. Perhaps it's time to stop subsidizing high fructose corn syrup?
Thanks to Lawrence Wallack for the PowerPoint slides.
