Sedentary lifestyle another factor in obesity problem?
Comments re article 57366 HealthyLivingLink NYT story on School Snack Food By Jon Halsey
Here's another take on this subject from Rick Moran at American Thinker:
"Yes, we have an obesity problem among our children. But it is unclear if high calorie, high fat foods are mostly to blame.When I see folks in the check-out lanes with four, six even eight cartons of soda in their carts along with boxes of snack cakes, etc., I question whether the schools are the problem. Jon Halsey, Knifley
Thanks, Jon Halsey. You raise a good point insofar as sedentary lifestyle is a factor: Of course sedentary lifestyle is a factor, especially in obesity. And activity would go a long way toward solving the problem. But might not changing diet solve the problem, too? Would a combination of diet and exercise? Might be both are needed - more exercise, and better diets. - EW
