02/19/2004 Archived Entry: "States combat obesity with laws"

You're fat, and they want to help. Debra here. States and cities are getting onto the obesity gravy train with proposals for laws and regulations to help you stop helping yourself to the buffet.

Proposals include:

- Mandating that fast food restaurants warn you that their food may be fattening (ummm...duh!)
- Getting kids exercising (perhaps by having them practice getting up and down on the floor)
- Testing kids' body fat during PE (one more reason to love it)

Louisiana's even paying some state workers to get their stomachs stapled. I'll bet all those Louisianans just love their tax money going for that.
