Divided Desire
Jeff Levi of Trust for America’s Health has said this about the rise in obesity. “We need to create environments where the healthy choice becomes the easy choice, where it’s possible for people to bear that responsibility (Agiesta & Neergaard, 2013).” Americans must take personal responsibility for both eating habits and food cultivation; in fact, we went from cooking our own food to relying on more processed, packaged foods. Americans (USDA) eat less red meat and eggs, corn, and more fish and poultry than in 1970. ERS data suggest that average daily calorie intake increased by 24.5 percent, or about 530 calories, between 1970 and 2000.
