Sugar aside. We are hardwired to eat a lot of food when we can get it and store it as fat. Great if your a hunter gatherer. Not great if you live next to McDs. How to actually combat this F' really knows. What would be a massive help is to get people actually doing regular strenuous activity.... good luck with that too!
The media and polliticians, and maybe even soceity, loves a single (often minor) factor to be a scapegoat or to focus anger on. Unto itself this is not helpfull either.
Cus smoking and tripping is all that you do. Ohhhh yeaahhh
