Fixing a Fat Nation


Fred Vanden Heede, grant writer and consultant, forwarded an article to the WIN the Rockies office from The Washington Monthly entitled "Fixing a Fat Nation - Why diets and gyms won’t save us from the obesity epidemic." The article was written by Tom Farley, a professor at Tulane University of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and Deborah Cohen, a senior natural scientist at the RAND Corporation.

The thought bullets for this month come from a few of the insights from the article. Please visit the website for The Washington Monthly and read the entire article:
