Letter to the Editor: Regulate, don't ban, bad 'food'

Here's another letter to the editor published in the Salem News:

There’s no need to cite the ever-increasing statistics on obesity, along with its secondary and tertiary effects on the overall society.

It’s not an individual problem; it increasingly is a societal problem.

Weight control for many people is extremely hard to manage, even when not being blasted by thousands of ads per day telling us to eat more."
