The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched a massive new ten-year information campaign to improve Americans’ health, called “Healthy People 2010.” Among their goals is a reduction in the so-called “obesity epidemic.” Although the private-sector American Obesity Association (AOA) promotes the Healthy People 2010 agenda on their website (see today’s Site of the Day), they give the new government campaign a “D” grade for “not proposing practical ways to reverse the escalating toll of obesity.” Last fall AOA called for new “fat taxes” to support anti-obesity programs.
