Growing concerns over childhood obesity will soon become another
cash cow for drug companies.
Of all the moronic approaches to health care in this country this one sets a fine example -
simply throwing a little money at this problem (for phys ed, healthier yet edible cafeteria food,
and publically pounding the crap out of fast food chains that serve nothing but crap)
would make the worst of it disappear. Instead we glob money on miracle drugs, let public funding
finance private patents, and
immunity to drug companies. Yee fuckin haw.
