The media is highly touted for its influence of the American populous. But, as is sarcastically reported by the Onion, there is one facet of popular behavior that seems completely immune. Despite consistent negative publicity, the Calorie Industry stomps on unphased. While the Onion reports in jest, there is a serious side to the issue; the U.S Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health News reported that obesity is poised to cut U.S. life expectancy by two to five years over the next few decades. Ironically, the one niche of modern journalism that seems most sincere and beneficial to the American citizen doesn’t seem to have any influence at all.
