Questions about Obesity

Majikithise has an interesting and entertaining post on the conflicting data concerning the harms of obesity.  She concludes by stating, "Pundits and interest groups are exploiting the Flegal study as an excuse to sneer at public health iniatives, malign the CDC, and to downplay the seriousness of the obesity epidemic."  This mirrors my thoughts.  [bm]

Update:  Erza Klein also has a post concerning the obesity studies and the media response.
