Fitness--A Government Affair??

I wanted to post this little survey conducted in the parade circular that comes in the local paper. I think personally that people should try to get healthy and exercise. However, how does the government fit into the obesity problem plaguing America?

The question is... Should the government pass laws to fight obesity?

66% voted Yes ... "Obesity has become a severe public health threat, and we need to combat it as we would any other epidemic. As a nurse, I see how obesity is costing
us billions and detracting from quality of life."

34% voted No ... "Do you really want some bureaucrat in Washington telling you how much
you should weigh or what size pants you should wear? I think not."

What do you think??
