Oh yes lets blame the States deputies for obesity, they get blamed for everything else, when will people realise it is totally what you eat that makes you obese, very few people can blame medical problems. I feel very sorry for obese children, that is not always their fault, but we have to take charge of our own destiny and stop these do gooders telling us what to do. I see many obese children,but I have to say the parents are usually obese too and the parents are in denial,it will never change,it is not only fizzy drinks this is their whole diet that needs looking at, but I am sure you will be told where to go if you even suggest it.
