Here's a few research studies that have just been published as "news." I have to ask, is old news, news? And how much did the study cost to tell us something we already knew? See for yourself.
• Chicken Nuggets Loaded with Salt and Fat, Consumer Reports
• Obese Kids More Vulnerable to Bullies, Pediatrics
• Physical activity reduces the effect of the obesity gene in adolescents, International Journal of Obesity
What if we took all the money spent on studies to tell us what we already know and put it into school lunch and physical education programs? You know, fix the problem, not study it.
