Default New blog on obesity and weight stigma

There's an interesting new blog about various factors contributing to the obesity epidemic: restaurant portion sizes, food marketing to children, jobs that requires less and less physical activity, and so on. People are also posting about the stigma faced by obese people in our society. It's run by the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University, which is headed by Kelly Brownell. He's a big proponent of changing the "toxic environment" that leads to obesity. The blog authors are Rudd researchers as well as plain folk. You can find it at http://www.ruddsoundbites.typepad.com.

Thanks! I notice that they are related to http://www.yaleruddcenter.org/ Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity by Yale University. I never knew that website existed and it looks fascinating.
