This is good

The U.S Surgeon General's office has stated "Today’s epidemic of overweight and obesity threatens the historic progress we have made in increasing American’s quality and years of healthy life." The article is here.

That's all well and good but what effect will it have on our society? If the U.S. Surgeon General advocates something, does it happen? I don't know enough about American politics to really understand the implications of this statement but I live in hope.......

(I know, the photo's a cheap shot, but somehow I just have this image in my head of all the people employed at the U.S. Surgeon General's office sitting around in scrubs all day....)
