  1. When government subsidizes sugar, wheat, corn, soy and builds nutritious diagram with pictures of bread, cereal, rice, pasta to be 40% of your diet….it is really difficult for a nation not to be fat and obese. In the 80s, I remember being a Track Runner and was told that you can eat as much complex carbs as you want.

  2. I never listen to anythink university's say, all crap. I grew up in the 80,s, we ATE anything we wanted, drank all day long, NEVER went around checking fructose, sugar, calories and all that nonsense!! we were not over weight, we were healthy, we had no medical or mental problems at all. Oh and we Smoked A LOT, in fact smoking was encouraged back in the older days, and that generation lived longer than any other. The obese problem in kids Today is due to changes in lifestyle, like technology and lazyness. They sit in front of screens all day long, they get depressed and lazy, they don't engage like we did in our days, they don't go out, exercise or get fresh air.
