the real problem

Well, I think the real problem is that no one knows what's the real problem - why (many) people are so motivated to eat calorie rich food while also are motivated to weigh less, but many are convinced they do know. I disagree though that it is the irresponsibility of industry - they sell what people buy, but people's money don't follow people's words. I also don't think it is an education issue - judged, for example, by the fact that most - close to all - people who lose weight, meaning, have all the tools to do so, included knowledge, gain weight eventually. I'm sure society would willingly play a role - once scientist will give them a useful role.
