so we need to change what we're telling people, maybe?
possibly but beyond;
"Look you'll die young and so will your children will you stop eating shit, please"
What can we say?
And once you've said it all and got angry then, sometimes, laughing is the only response other than crying isn't it?
 I'm being over simplistic and there are all sorts of psychological causes for all this I know. It just seems to be that, 'en masse' people can't be changed. As individuals they all know there's a problem but there seems to be very little that a government can do, at that level, to change people's habits day to day.
It is desperatly sad for a lot of people who are overweight and want to change.
Making comments on here in a general way is different to pickign out individuals and doing it (imo). I can't change what people choose to do but in the end (as above) it comes down to self control and being able to see the benefit of losing weight and adopting a generally healthier lifestyle. I've no idea how to force someone to achieve that,
