Obesity Hype?

I came across a full page ad in Newsweek claiming that the claims that there is an obesity problem in the U.S. is hype. Anything that stupid deserved to be followed up on so I checked out the website listed.

The Center for Consumer Freedom is a site that claims that organic food is actually worse for you than food soaked in pesticides, schools that ban sodas should also ban fruit juice, and bioengineered food is good besides saying that obesity isn’t that big of a problem. Also, if you are obese it is because you are inactive not because your food had anything to do with it.

Not surprisingly, other sources reveal that the site is run by a combination of restaurant and food production companies.
