business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Wall Street Journal reports that 83 percent of those surveyed in a recent poll say that the major reason for America's obesity problem is lack of exercise, not too many calories. Only about a third of those surveyed thought that eating too much fast food (38 percent) and too many calories (34 percent) were major reasons.

Of those surveyed, more than 90 percent said that television commercials have either "a lot" or "some" influence over people's overeating habits.
KC's View:
Just like Americans. We look for easy answers. It couldn't possibly be both overeating and lack of exercise.
