Philly Food Fight

“The scourge the parents were combating was neither the drugs nor the violence that plagues this North Philadelphia neighborhood. It was bad eating habits” starts this article.

Later the articles describes: “Scientists have demonstrated the power of sugar since at least 1974, when a Brooklyn College professor, Anthony Sclafani, found that lab rats were so drawn to Froot Loops that they would suppress their natural fear to eat in the exposed areas of their cages.” If rats will die for sugar cereal then no wonder kids are keeping a tight fist.
