Surgeon General calls childhood obesity epidemic a “national catastrophe” … part 1 of 2

[I'm out of the country until June 7, but my blogs will still magically appear here!] Levine and Stein of the Washington Post pulled no punches on the front page of my local newspaper May 18, the first in a five-part series.   The pictures, sidebars, and article took up more than a full news […]
