Diet Industry a 40 billion dollar one...

As some in America see their waistlines expanding, there is still an increasing number who decide they are going to do something about their weight, from weight loss pills to other diet products in 2007 it was reported that the diet industry was a 40 billion dollar one.

What's interesting is some of the myths related to this, one primary one is that if those of lower economic statuses truly did not have enough to eat weight would not be an issue. Statistically it's been proven it's not the quantity of the food eaten that causes some to be overweight, it is the quality and the type of food. What role the government should play in this has been an ongoing issue...
