Here is some of my late breaking research news:

Eat a lot of sugar and crap, sit on your backside and you get fat.

Eat moderate portions of heathly food, get a little exercise and you don't get fat.

Where is my check?

Rumor has it dinner after the symposium is the all-you-can-eat buffet at Golden Corral.

Packman,

You are too funny! I do think that the Golden Corrals should have to post a warning under their sign that eating there can be hazardous to your health.

Maybe they can put a report that fruits and vegetables ARE real food, and that fast food can possibly make you fat if you eat too much of it. Oh, and obesity is a huge factor in the life expectancy in the US being as low as it is

The first question that I would ask, How many are on food stamps that are fat compared to the ones not on food stamps. What is the ratio?

If they want to study obesity, Little Rock is an ideal place to be.
