Ms Fralick's point is right on the mark. Someone needs to take up the real problem which is our very poor diet and lifestyles. Example; our major food suppliers are still baking with trans fats, everything is drenched with sugar and salt, white flour is still pumped into almost everything and no one at our "Dept. of health is bothering to take the any notice at all. There needs to be some controls put on food suppliers and the public needs to wake up and make some changes to help the process along. We are now finally getting a dribble of organic produce in our supermarkets which hopefully will increase. There also should be some encouragement from government to promote these initiatives. Imagine the savings that would result in health care from a decrease in cancer and diabetes rates alone.
