Child Obesity, Fast Foods and Healthy Nutrition

Hosted by

Councilwoman Jan Perry says there are too many fat kids in South Los Angeles. She wants to ban new fast-food stores in 32 square miles of the city. But what's the evidence that fast food causes obesity? Does government have the right to tell citizens that it's wrong to be overweight? Even if healthier restaurants moved in, would people eat in them if they had the chance?
