Big debate…..many issues, many sides, and
many make that, very many opinions.
The Toronto Star is doing an obesity series and it is a good read.
Here are the links so far to what’s been said.
NEW June 21 (Part IV)
My take on this one…no, the time to fight obesity was a decade ago. The time to fight obestiy was when governemnt decided to remove real physical education from school cirrculums. The time to fight obesity was when heart disease, diabetes and cholesterol rates started to rise across all demographics and entered into age groups never seeing the diseases realted to fat before.
Now is not the time to fight obesity…now is the time to fight a generation that has been brought up thinking fat is ok and who believe that, “it’s not my fault.” Fix the thinking and then we can fix obesity. Put priorities back on real fitness education and responsibility.
What are your opinions on the issue?
Are you fine with our tax dollars being spent on health related issues that can be avoided?
Do you think it is genetics and that exercise and nutrition are not the issue, or do you think the food manufacturers have done wrong by society?
Could this be a parenting issue, fast and big lifestyles = fast food obese society?
I would love to know your thoughts on the issues that are being discussed. Tell me your thoughts and you know, in the next few days, I will let you know what I think.
