    Obesity fight must shift from personal blame: U.S. panel - Yahoo! News

    In an ambitious 478-page report, the IOM refutes the idea that obesity is largely the result of a lack of willpower on the part of individuals. Instead, it embraces policy proposals that have met with stiff resistance from the food industry and lawmakers, arguing that multiple strategies will be needed to make the U.S. environment less "obesogenic."

    "There has been a tendency to look for a single solution, like putting a big tax on soda or banning marketing (of unhealthy food) to children," panel chairman Dan Glickman, a senior fellow of the Bipartisan Policy Center and a former secretary of the Department of Agriculture, told Reuters. "What this report says is this is not a one-solution problem."

    Government control must be total.

    It's a typo. I don't know how to correct it in the title, or I would have.

    The public just cannot be trusted with its own food choices. The people might decide differently from what the government wants.

    And what the Gov't wants is for you to follow the FDA Food Pyramid which not only recommends heavily subsidized farm products but is also sure fire way to remain a tub o' lard!
