Does America really have an obesity epidemic and if so, why?


Is it all too much food? Too much bad food? Bad stuff in our food? No exercise? Changing insurance standards? What is the problem (assuming there is one) and what is the answer?

    Forgot to put in why. Too much junk food, lack of exercise.

    Yes, and food seems to be used more for comfort and fun than when I was a kid (50 years ago!) We always ate at the table, with the family. I mean, food was family time, not like watching a movie. Plus we walked EVERYWHERE. Now that isn't even safe.
