Paul Stitt, MS spoke to NOHA on food, cancer, calories, and Aspartame. He also is concerned and has written on why are Americans so fat.

Why are Americans so much heavier now than when they were first settling this country? Why are Americans so much heavier than Chinese, Italians, Africans, and Spanish people? A few reasons stand out. Americans eat more fat – especially hydrogenated fat, polyunsaturated fat, and butter fat. They eat more sugar and artificial sweeteners than any other people on earth. Americans also experience more episodes of acute hunger each day than any other people on earth – many people eat 11 times a day. Americans also consume less fiber than any other nation. Americans consume less omega-3, an essential fatty acid, than any other nation. And Americans do less physical work per day than any other nation.
