No matter how you slice it if you eat less you gain less weight or even lose weight. Just because food is more calorie dense now and "processed" it does not make you fat unless you put it in your mouth.

While I agree completely with Tanner's warning against increasing the reach of the federal government in the area of obesity, he did not give any evidence as to whether or not obesity is actually a disease. While choices by individuals are at work in the obesity epidemic and individual discipline part of the solution, it remains possible that there are other factors involved including but not limited to environmental, infectious, genetic and/or epigenetic factors. I will reserve judgement as to whether or not obesity is actually a disease or merely a symptom of 20th and 21st century abdication of personal responsibility until the evidence is in. Until then we should resist goverment attempts to "fix" the problem. We know how that usually ends up.

It is not actually weight that matters but physical fitness. It just so happens that these variables trend together, but not perfectly. Now, it is important for people to know this fact and also advisable to stay physically fit. However, you can imagine what government busy-bodies will do with this fact.

Maybe not "anti-semite" , but not putting our full support behind Isreal and not standing up to the Islamic thugs in the region is irresponsible. Allowing unhinged Fascists access to nuclear weapons is beyond irresponsible, its a crime against humanity.
