Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Single thing needed to prevent obesity: control the mouth

The cause of obesity is clear and simple: eating > needs, or in > out; that is, energy intake is greater than energy use. For the majority of the public, there is little genetic component to cause obesity or over weight. Rather, personal determination is the single thing that is needed to control body weight. Just control the mouth. Simple and easy, and free. Even for the most favorite food, the amount to eat should be controlled - the principle of moderation, a universal law. If one can not control his/her mouth, everything else will fail. Most of the current research and government or community efforts on strategies of obesity prevention are just waste of resources.
