A new war in Mexico

Here's a really interesting report from ABC-Australia's Foreign Correspondent.

They are doing a story on the problem of obesity around the world, and one of the countries they focus on is Mexico.


One of the great things to see in our neighbourhood is that there is a well maintained park that lots of people use for exercise in the morning and evening. However, that is balanced by the easy availability and amazingly low price of softdrinks (600ml coke, cold at a 7-11 for about AUD$0.50) and pre-packaged, high fat and sugar content snack foods.

Having said all that - we've just come back from a couple of weeks in the USA. Double deep fried doughnut with extra glaze and whipped cream for breakfast anyone??
