  • The message has been pushed on us.

  • It's your fault you're fat.

  • Shouldn't be so hard to get them to run around and play? Right?

  • They have voracious appetites and they don't exercise enough.

  • It's about how active our kids are.

  • Forget about it.

  • There are 600 thousand food items in America.

  • 80% percent of them have added sugar.

  • Your brain lights up with sugar just like it does with cocaine or heroin.

  • You're gonna become an addict.

  • You end up with one of the great public heath epidemics of our time.

  • This is the first generation that American children are expected to live shorter lives than their parents.

  • I am 12 years old and my doctors have said that I am a statistic.

  • We're blaming will power and it's a crime.

  • Over 95% of all Americans will be overweight or obese in 2 decades.

  • We're toast as a country.

  • The sugar industry is extraordinarily powerful.

  • They're in business to make money. Not to keep America healthy.

  • What if our whole approach to this epidemic has been dead wrong?

  • The government is subsidizing the obesity epidemic.

  • It placed private profit ahead of public health. Systematic political failure.

  • By 2050, one out of every 3 Americans will have diabetes.

  • Those diseases are being driven by sugar.

  • This is the fundamental problem. Nobody is talking about it in society.

  • We could cure 80% of the problem where they prepare the food in the school.

  • Tomato paste is a vegetable? Really?

  • Junkfood companies are acting very much like tobacco companies did 30 years ago.

  • I would reject entirely any argument that they are in any way harmful.

  • Lying through their teeth.

  • Kids are being told the biggest lie they will ever hear in their lives.

  • Ronald McDonald never sells to children.

  • He informs and inspires through magic and fun.

  • If a foreign nation were doing that to our children,

  • we would defend our families.

  • Years from now, we're gonna say,

  • “I can't believe we let them get away with that.”

  • We have to change the diet of America.

  • It's all preventable.

The epidemic here is worse than previously estimated. Much worse.
