America is full of fat people who lack the will power to stop eating. My brother-in-law turned 40, is gaining weight every year, refuses to reduce the amout of food he stuffs in his pie hole, and is taking a statin drug. Put him on a diet and chain him to a tread mill! What a sad individual.

Personally, I love the example of "healthier" choices available to the kids in schools, like beef jerky. What?! Healthier than what? With all the preservatives, salt, fat, etc?
We could not see the label (if there is one) for how many people tobacco kills per year. BUT, there are ever-fewer people smoking now, it is only a percentage of the population, and only a small percentage of those die in any given year from smoking-related causes. Now, riding in cars? We just about all do that (or drive them), and car crashes happen every day, and people sometimes die in them. So, if tobacco were on their chart, and it showed fewer deaths per year connected directly to it than to car crashes, would we stop trying to get people to quit smoking and try to make them stop driving? I don't think so. And anyway, obesity-related deaths far outstripped the others combined: in that chart anyway.
