Key to Solving Obesity Crisis Discovered

Nov. 5, 2010. FLASH!!! From the EurekAlert! Website.

As confirmed by a group from Norway who studied 924 fourth-graders, overweight children have different eating patterns than normal weight children. Obese children ingest more sugar. In addition, they are less active and more likely to have obese parents.

I imagine that you are as astounded by these revelations as I am. Perhaps this is the spark that will ignite the reversal of the worldwide epidemic of obesity. All we need to do is get children to eat and drink less sugar, exercise more and convince their parents to lose weight.

Now that this is settled, let’s address the second most important health problem of this century, chapped lips. If we focus all of our resources on finding a cure, we should be able to lick chapped lips by the year 2020.

Hmmm. Wonder if the Norweigans will ever discover a treatment for lactose intolerance.
