Rampant Obesity and Health Care
Obesity in the US is rampant…one in three adults is obese according to latest statistics. The President was adamant about his Health Bill, apparently more adamant than the voters.

But then, diets don’t work do they? An interesting report by the Mayo Clinic on the nature of nutrition in the US can be found here:
