There are many complicated opinions from experts about why America’s children are becoming fatter, more diseased and emotionally unstable each year.

“Even if implemented, most of these ‘solutions’ are not likely to solve the problem,” he says. “That’s because most Americans were never taught the simple, common-sense root of most obesity and disease. There’s no mystery or magic to it at all.”
