Nannies are gaining converts in the campaign against restaurants. Every day, we show examples of the media picking up on the totally groundless allegation that restaurant food is to blame for the so-called obesity epidemic. Here are more examples:

“Fast food is a big problem. They’re easy, quick and relatively inexpensive meals, but they’re loaded with fat.” – (“Early action on obesity imperative,” Dayton Daily News, 3/9/00.)

“Junk food corporations that super-size everything [are to blame for obesity]…We mortals need the assistance of societal brakes on our tendencies toward self-indulgence.” – (“Obesity is an American epidemic,” International Herald Tribune, 3/9/00.)
