« The age-old question: When do you pull the trigger and make a Dr. appt.? | Main | The second-guessing continues on Richardson case »


I would like to put forth the position that we can exert control of what we put into our mouths. Let's take responsibility for our own behavior.

We are at fault for eating too much, for teaching our children to eat too much, for a culture that celebrates excessive eating, and for yielding to our genetically-programed preference for sugars and fats.

A good topic for food politics is the insidiousness and pervasiveness of fats, sugars and salts and their related compounds. That's why having good nutritional labels, and education on understanding labels, are worthy of serious political discussion and, in my opinion, sponsorship and funding.
