Fat of the Land, Coming Crisis, Work-Outs

  • Check out the interview in the Washington Post with Tom Vilsack, the new Secretary of Agriculture, and an ex-fat kid. He speaks poignantly of how parents can teach kids to eat well (his folks posted fat-boy drawings on the fridge -- not a tactic he recommends).

  • "When will we ever have universal health insurance in the U.S.?"Princeton health care economist Uwe Reinhard asked health care economist Victor Fuchs, according to Maggie Mahar's Health Beat. "Not until World War III, a Great Depression or a major epidemic threatens everyone," came Fuchs' reply. See why we may not have long to wait...

  • Work may be the best place to boost employee health and well-being, according to the Centers for Disease Control, reports Reuters. Sixty-five percent of the adult population in the United States can be reached through worksites, according to the report, making work the ideal place to focus on weight loss.
