It's a sad commentary on business ethics as well.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Underage, Overweight: The Federal Government Needs to Halt the Marketing of Unhealthy Foods to Kids

Folks...notice the url above: this is SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN!

"Nearly one in three children under the age of 18 is overweight or obese, making being overweight the most common childhood medical condition."

"In an ideal world, adults would teach children how to eat healthily and would lead by example. But in reality, two thirds of U.S. adults are themselves overweight or obese. Moreover, the food and beverage industry markets sugar- and fat-laden goods to kids directly—through commercials on television, product placement in movies and video games, and other media. Its considerable efforts—nearly $1.7 billion worth in 2007—have met with sickening success."

"The estimated cost of treating obesity-related ailments in adults was $147 billion for 2009. With the health care system already faltering, allowing companies to decide for themselves whether to peddle junk food to kids is a fox-and-henhouse policy this country simply cannot afford any longer."

I am so pleased to have such a well-respected source take note of one of the BIGGEST problems facing our country today! Great article!
