We can do better.

Yesterday
the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development released a report
stating that by 2020 three in four Americans will be overweight or obese if
current trends continue. We must look seriously at this epidemic. No amount of
tax cuts or tax increases can remedy the costs to pocketbooks of American
citizens when we start paying for ramifications of rampant ill health and disease
consequences of obesity. Look for the activities in your state by such groups
as Actions for Healthy Kids to see how you can support a lasting change for
future generations who must learn new ways to enjoy America’s ‘abundance’. We
can —and must—-do better.
