Study says kids get 40% of calories from junk food
Treehugger - 10/17/2010.
By Sara Novak – It's no wonder that kids are blowing up like balloons more every year. According to Kids Health, the percentage of overweight children in the United States is growing at an alarming rate – one out of three kids are now considered overweight or obese. And even worse, a new study released by the National Cancer Institute and reported on Civil Eats found that nearly 40 percent of calories consumed by children ages 2 to 18 were empty calories, the unhealthiest kind of calories, derived from junk food.
UN says global farm methods ‘recipe for disaster’

For if you examine the proposition, is it not the case that Cox's Orange Pippins excite enthusiasm in many people when even the juiciest and most flavoursome English runner bean is unlikely to do so, although they are both in essence the same thing, namely seed pods?
