    Why the big hullabaloo when all they have to do is ship these overweight kids to the Moon, where they’ll only weigh one sixth of what they weigh on Earth!!

    One study says that fat kids get colds and everyone jumps on the bandwagon! Lets wait until we get more studies until we jump on the bandwagon. Anyway, it is a good idea to keep your kids fit and away from the tv and games.
