Want to know why kids get fat? The Cause of Morbid Childhood Obesity.  Watch the first 3 minutes of this documentary to see an (maybe extreme) example. Both absurd and sad at the same time. It makes me think of this quote: “We don’t let our kids get addicted to alcohol. We don’t let them become addicted to smoking. Perhaps we should be equally cautious when it comes to soda and other highly processed high carb junk food.” Very true.
