    Good idea. B-but, is she fat again? She could ruin the whole campaign.

    Just another part of the problem.

    How about running shoes, instead of a car?

    Yes, here for a while, iced tea saw a resurgence, and a lot of people went for unsweetened iced tea. But now, the "sweet tea" campaign has caught on, turning a healthy option into another calorie bomb.

    Some states here (most notably California) have slapped a tax on these sugary drinks. Time will tell if this has any effect. Corporate-bought conservatives are already pushing back by calling it "more governmental meddling".

    The state of California doesn't care whether people are obese. The government just found another deep pocket to mine for revenue, that's all. If the government had the means to turn the sun off and on, there'd be a tax on daylight.

    When I was at senior school back in the 70's ,out of maybe 2000 kids I can only recall about three fatties .
    That's because people walked ,ran and played football and other sports .
    Kids today sit in their bedrooms stuffing their faces with crap while playing computer games .
    Adults that let themselves get obese are just lazy ,greedy slobs .
    Simple .
    Fatties should be locked in the stocks, pizza and burgers should be thrown at them in the street .
    I did notice though ,when I went to my local hospital most of the nurse's were fat .
    What does that tell you ?

    And the thin ones either smoke, are alcoholics or both 😉

    Well, on the Coca-Cola and Pepsi websites the serving size is 12 fl oz but the sizes at restaurants are bigger.
