Here is the homeostatic news stat of the day - all the benefits we have gotten from getting people to stop smoking over the past forty years are being negated by the rising levels of obesity. This from a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine. As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say "It just goes to show you, it's always something! If it's not one thing, it's another!"
As nice as it is for the celebrities to endorse campaigns to "feed the hungry" they need to know that more people in this country die from overeating than from not eating enough. Sad but true.
