I agree that there are some conspiracies between diet food companies and

Are you suggesting that the overwhelming evidence of the dangers of
obesity is simply a marketing trick?
I think you're being overly nit-picky about weights by height and don't
see the relevancy of food preservation, refrigeration, antibiotics or

few pounds overweight.
And it's not a fight: It's a discussion. We're exchanging ideas,
opinions, options and suggestions, not blows or missiles.
