Food Industry Pushes Unhealthy Foods, Blames Obesity On Inactivity

May 3, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists writing in a journal editorial excoriate the food industry – comparing its marketing tactics to those of “Big Tobacco” – for pushing sugary and fatty foods on people, while blaming obesity on a lack of physical activity. "Sugar calories promote fat storage and hunger. Fat calories induce fullness or satiation," they write. Though regular exercise is important for warding off serious illnesses, no one can “outrun” a diet loaded with sugar, carbs, and fat. In fact, calorie-packed diets now generate more bad health than a sedentary lifestyle, alcohol, and smoking combined, the scientists write.
