Equating

This interesting article talks about the folks that are equating famine and starvation with obesity as nutrition-based policy and societal problems of the same thread.

Are overeating and starving really comparable problems? Can they really be (sorry) weighted equally? Does a Des Moines factory worker who is ten pounds overweight have a like interest in correcting his health as a chronically undernourished Sudanese child?


I guess the best way to take care of obesity related diseases and health issues is to stop subsidizing them. But, hey, what do I know?

Comments:
We'd have a lot more natural sugar in the US if we'd just get rid of those trade barriers. High fructose corn syrup (our current sugar substitute) is very bad for you, whereas sugar is just kinda bad for you.

What other unhealthy foods do we subsidize?
