Consequences

If we really cared about what can only be called an epidemic of obesity – and the resulting health care costs – we would appoint a cabinet level seat to look holistically at the impact of:

    • Easy to acquire, highly refined carbohydrates distributed as “food”
    • Huge government subsidies for the corn industry
    • Junk food marketed to children
    • The use of corn in factory farming to lower the price of red meat
    • Decreasing emphasis on cooking at home
    • Decreasing emphasis on movement
    • Food companies engineering addiction into taste
    • Lack of nutritional training for medical professionals
