The "Causes" of Obesity

Mark Bittman, one of my favorite food writers and educators, wrote a clear and compelling piece in this morning's NYTimes Opinion section. See Mark Bittman's commentary here:  "Real food is more likely to promote health than hyperprocessed food."

Well said, Mark Bittman. I would add three other "causes" of obesity:
1. limited access to Real Food 
2. a Congress that currently is unlikely to act on scientific evidence, but rather in the interest of powerful food lobbyists. We as voters need to eat our vegetables, not send them to Congress.
3. Lack of education. Consumers need to understand that short term "cheap food" comes at a very high cost for the most vulnerable among us.
