How far will we go to avoid the facts on food?

So how much do we really care about our health? Perhaps we are destined to meander down the same path toward obesity. That’s right, 34 percent of Americans are considered obese. Not just a bit overweight, but “obese.”

 

While we have a bounty of information on calories and nutrition, we continue to make poor choices in nutrition and pay the price with rising rates of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

 

Is it a lack of willpower? Or perhaps we really just want to live happily ever after with our palettes running the show, and health is an afterthought.   

 

I was struck by Friday’s AP report about a doctor’s high-profile war on obesity in a south Florida town that ended in a forced resignation from his job. Dr. Jason Newman was the director of the Bay County Health Department. He used an electronic sign to message residents on the public health issue of obesity. 

 

While I agree that his approach was provocative—with the sign flashing messages like “Hamburger = Spare Tire” and “French Fries = Thunder Thighs”—but he got people talking about food and weight. 

 

Business owners say that he went too far when he named a national chain in one of his messages when he converted the slogan “America Runs on Dunkin’” into “America Dies on Dunkin.’”

 

Okay, perhaps he went too far with that one.

 

Sure, I’m as drawn to a sweet, warm doughnut as the next guy. And I crave a juicy hamburger from time to time (extra pickles, please). But we can certainly benefit from reminders and clues on how these choices impact our weight and health.

 

One provision of the healthcare reform bill being currently considered includes a requirement that restaurants with 20 or more locations disclose calories on their menus to help us understand what we’re consuming. While this stirs discord and controversy for restaurant associations and business owners, at least consumers will have information from which we can make informed choices.

 

Some restaurant chains already offer this information on their menus, yet others (Dunkin’ Donuts) say they’ll need a federal law in place before they’ll comply.

 

Still want to super-size your high blood pressure or get some diabetes to go, errr…donuts for your morning commute? Step up and place your order. Information is power, right?
