Intelligence Squared - Obesity is the Government's Business

Obesity is the Government's Business

With 33% of adults (32.3% in Alabama) and 17% of children obese, the U.S. is facing an obesity epidemic. A major risk factor for expensive, chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, it costs our health care system nearly $150 billion a year.

Should government intervene, or is this a matter of individual rights and personal responsibility? Where do you weigh in on this debate?

And please let us know your thoughts on Intelligence Squared in general or on any other programs playing during The Radio Clinic either by commenting below or on Facebook and Twitter. And when you do, thanks!

Intelligence Squared, is coming to WBHM/WSGN weeknights at 8 p.m. July 16-20

Please give us your honest opinions on the new programs. What did you like? What did you not like? And, if you've got the time, tell us why, too. Once we've got the community's "diagnosis," it will help WBHM write a prescription for change!
