Is it worth the counting?


The number of people who consciously watch what they eat and actually do serious exercise is relatively small compared to the population at large.  We have watched as obesity and overweight have become epidemics and the amount of people with diabetes and high blood pressure and other disease has grown proportionately with the growth in [...]
