Take a good long look at this picture:
The experts would have us believe that the child in this picture is fat because he isn't outside playing and instead is watching TV.
Surfing the web however, I found scores of pix of thin kids watching the evil, fat producing TV.
Here's a few:
So it just can't be the TV watching as scores of thin kids watch lots of TV.
Also, we have all seen obese kids playing sports. I don't have to post pix of these as we have all seen them on soccer fields, baseball fields and football fields across the nation.
Well here's one:
Parents, caregivers, teachers, coaches, trainers and physicians, kids are not fat because they are too inactive. We must abandon this false and nonsensical notion.
Take another look at the first picture. What else other than the TV is in that room that might, just might be the real reason that the kid in that picture is so fat?
But again, the experts would say "Well of course the snacks contribute – especially since the chips and soda are chock full of fat and calories." Just the fat and calories? That's like looking at the Mona Lisa and saying "Wow that picture is amazing because of her eyes." The eyes? What about the smile?
What about the sugar and carbohydrates? If you look at the label you'll find that Lays potato chips have, per single serving bag, 10 grams of fat and 15 grams of carbs.
Dorito Nacho chips are worse. 8 grams of fat and 18 grams of carbohydrate.
Soda of courseis all carbs/sugar.
So why are the experts not screaming about the carbohydrate content of these foods?
Think of of it this way. If the picture of the fat kid had him eating a huge fruit salad with a few banana skins on the floor in front of him, would the experts blame the food? No. They would think the kid was on the road to leanness and just needed to stop watching the telly.
Of course, the bananas and the fruit salad would be even higher in carbohydrate and total calories. But since there is no fat in these foods, hey kid munch away!
As soon as the ADA, NIH, AMA and others of their ilk get off the fat wagon and onto the sugar wagon and declare carbohydrates the real cause of obesity in this world, we'll see the growing epidemic of obesity and diabetes vanish and vanish fast.
How do you fix the health care system? Easy – stop making people need it.
