A large number of Americans don't want "BIG GOVERNMENT" to mess with their "BIG GUNS" or "BIG GULPS" no matter what the costs, even if it's their own health or lives at stake.
Societal changes in recent decades have helped spur growing waistlines, and now a third of U.S. children and teens and two-thirds of adults are either overweight or obese. Today, restaurants dot more street corners and malls, regular-sized portions are larger, and a fast-food meal can be cheaper than healthier fare. Not to mention electronic distractions that slightly more people surveyed blamed for obesity than fast food.
