Govt funded science justifies Govt food fascism

The CDC scientists are saying that despite all their best efforts and good intentions, US citizens are still eating too much.

So, their only conclusion is that Government must "focus...less on nutrition education and more on shaping the food environment." Interpretation: Citizens can not be trusted to make correct decisions about their own welfare so government must make the decisions for them.

A revised view of eating as an automatic behavior, as opposed to one that humans can self-regulate, has profound implications for our response to the obesity epidemic, suggesting that the focus should be less on nutrition education and more on shaping the food environment.
