The kids don't want to eat healthy, everything that was less accessible even 20 years ago is almost a given these days. These days the kids cart mobiles around, go on PCs more than they should, eat pretty much anything and sit and play FIFA on their games consoles instead of kicking the real thing about with their mates.

And the gyms etc tap into female obsession with their weight and what they eat, frankly I hate almost anything that tries to force you to buy (into) it by scaremongering.
And the chances are there is so muchc rap in our food that it is causing the increase in cancer, not that we need TV ads to tell us how we're going to die from cancer thanks. I think we all know at some level that mcdonalds isc rap and not good for us, but like with anything we justify it by saying "it's no worse than................" kind of comments, like you'll see in the Celtic thread. I wonder if you can do the same with dying, "it's no worse than" or "it's only a few people doing it" really doesn't work...........................
People will believe what they want to believe
