New report disputes commonly used statistics, cites evidence of obesity hysteria driven by pharmaceutical industry

Washington, DC – As ABC News and Time magazine convene a major gathering this week to discuss the nation’s expanding waistline, rhetoric about the “obesity epidemic” has itself reached epidemic proportions. In a new report entitled “An Epidemic of Obesity Myths,” the Center for Consumer Freedom presents evidence that disputes many commonly cited statistics and presumptions driving today’s obesity hysteria. The report also exposes how the pharmaceutical industry is putting enormous resources behind research that grossly exaggerates the costs of being overweight.

Citing a wide array of health, exercise and nutrition experts from Case Western Reserve University, George Washington University, the University of Virginia, and the former editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, the report undermines oft-quoted myths including:


Obesity kills 400,000 Americans a year
Obesity costs the U.S. economy $117 billion per year
64 percent of Americans are overweight or obese
Overeating is the primary cause of obesity
Overweight individuals cannot be healthy
Soda consumption causes childhood obesity
The hype behind these obesity myths has become the driving force for trial lawyers who see dollar signs where the rest of us see dinner and activists who advocate radical “solutions” like zoning restrictions on restaurants and extra taxes and warning labels on certain foods.

Along with today’s release of “An Epidemic of Obesity Myths,” the Center for Consumer Freedom distributed an obesity prevention kit, which provides those concerned about weight gain with plenty of common sense “warning labels” including a mirror, doggy bag, pedometer, a calorie expenditure chart and a glossary of terms. All items in the kit emphasize personal responsibility—not government intervention.

It's worth taking a look at the whole enchilada

I saw this too. I'm surprised nobody has cracked a joke about how he, attempting to sound like a reluctant blog virgin, actually was advertising his interest being the next to be tagged.

Looks like it's off to a good start though.

When I read that statement, I knew he was begging.

Well there you are, mongo_jones: part enfant terrible, part angel, part boogie man to his nephews, part swami and full time ambassador of Indian cuisine.

His "what does indian food mean to you?" question and it's responses are more relevant than some recently published market surveys.

Move on to the next stop. Kanpur not only has bizarrely-identifiable food joints, but also restaurateurs with quirky IDs. Mattha Pandey alias Ram Avatar of Kanpur not only gives a unique taste to his food but also calls them funny things. And if his Communist Poorie and Apradhi Aata caught the attention of food-lovers earlier, his current-day sell-out Thaggu Ke Ladoo at Bada Chauraha. Mattha Pandey recalls how when he landed in Kanpur in 1945-46 he heard a speech of Mahatma Gandhi's who termed sugar as white poison. "Since laddoo can't be made without sugar, I decided to be true to my customer and call them Thaggu Ke Ladoo," says Mattha Pandey.

He may have directed the Big B in a film, but adman turned Aks-man Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has not given up on his other love: food

The cuisine is traditional Indian fare, featuring delicacies from Lucknow, Rampur and the North-West Frontier. The menu has been divided into two segments—lunch has a variety of combo meals, while dinner is pegged at Rs 199 for a choice of salad, five different kababs, three vegetarian and three non-vegetarian items, besides raita, biryani and assorted rotis. If you still want seconds, eat all you want without paying anything more!
