Must see. This is the upcoming health crisis for our children as juvenile diseases, resulting from obesity, create lifelong heartache and health costs. Corporations push the notion that overweight people are inactive but it is the composition and stealthy marketing of junk (low-fat and high-fat) foods which is adding the pounds which eventually become so difficult to move around. Corporations selling low-fat foods laden with tons of sugar (which is known to be toxic and addictive in all but the smallest doses).
