BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- The rate of obesity in American children continues to creep up -- rising from 14.8 percent in 2003 to more than 16 percent in 2007 among kids 10 to 17 years of age.
A major reason for the increase? American kids are eating more than they should.
Did we really need a study to know that overeating was a leading cause of obesity?

(i can't open the link on my bb).. Was the study funded by a government grant? Then yes, they needed to spend government money to justify 'some' academics purpsoe for drawing a paycheck...This common sense knowledge is the result... Death of Common Sense in America...
