    As I recall it, the party line a few years ago was that our evil society put so much emphasis on slimness that there was an epidemic (a popular word) of anorexia nervosa among young women. What ever happened to that problem?

    I would say the driving force is, "There are more opportunities to control others in obesity."

    Any money earned is secondary to the cause...
