I disagree with that view broncobuff. People can control their eating, it's just hard. Humans are able to overcome their instincts, it's one of the things that sets us apart from animals.
People just want sympathy and an excuse as to why it's not their fault.
Mosca- yeah, things are more dangerous than they used to be, but it's no excuse to condem your children to a life of health problems because the parent is not only too lazy to take care of themselves, but can't even look out for the well being of their child.
