With 70 percent of Americans overweight or obese and health related costs skyrocketing, is it time for the “food police?” Some health advocates say it’s time for “tough love” towards obesity – tax soda pop and junk food as if it were tobacco, tie health insurance premiums to weight, make healthy eating a condition of employment? Friday morning at 9 join host Regina Brett for a conversation about fighting fat through public policy.

Guests

Dr. Michael Roizen, Cleveland Clinic
Dr. Kelly Brownell, Yale Rudd Center for Food and Obesity
Dr. David Kessler, Former FDA Commissioner and author of “The End of Overeating”
Jessica Berg, Case Western Reserve University
