    The baby boomers, though I highly doubt they as a group intended to do anything wrong

    The introduction of fast food restaraunts, boxed dinner, and television was the beginning of the demise, IMO.

    i think the "bigger is better" philosophy. i mean who can even finish dinners at restaurants nowadays without feeling ill? i mean maybe if i haven't eaten in hours....but seriously. i think tv dinners boxed dinners and fast food have a LOT to do with it too.

    Yeah, I guess it is

    No one could have known what was in store when that first McDonald's opened, or when the first personal computer was unveiled, or when foreign cars became so cheap to buy...but I really do think that was the beginning of the extremely sedentary lifestyle trend in the U.S.

    parents. they ultimately have the responsibility of their child. i'm not saying never eat a sweet treat or have a lazy saturday afternoon. but not every day. get out the damn apples and go play in the park.

    People. We have a lazy society (as I sit infront of my computer typing and eating jelly beans.) It is easier to watch TV, order take-out, and be lazy then to get exercise.

    Boy...these jelly beans are good!

    Also, I do believe that people are just too busy. If there was a time to slow down and enjoy life, I do believe we wouldn't be as big as we are.
