before you blame the problems of obesity completely on the people (who consume the large quantities of fast food), please watch or read things like "supersize me" if you haven't already. not sure i'd completely blame it on the fast food industry either. but when fast food is cheap and plentiful, and fast food is offered in schools instead of more nutritious food (partly because its what the kids want), and people don't have a lot of money, its one of the reasons people gravitate to fast food. reading about the slow food movement, the obama's garden and michelle obama bringing in DC children to learn about slow food, etc. all of that helps. but we can't just place blame and tell people what they should be doing. we need to figure out why things are the way they are and then figure out what we all can do to change the situation.
