I think the majority of the so-called "obesity epidemic" is due to sedentary lifestyles more than "junk food".

IMHO, Bingo!!!!

As a kid I ate ice cream, chips, snicker doodles, etc., etc., and plenty of fried chicken, fried okra, fried squash, creamed corn, etc., etc., etc. Why wasn't I fat? Because I was either shooting hoops in the drive till dark, playing sandlot baseball till dark, swimming to the pool closed, pedaling bikes all over town, etc., etc., etc.

Seems like kids (and adults) these days still do the former but little of the later.
