>...ISMNT News #21 deals with the frustrating experience that despite strong
recomendations only 1% of children and teens follow in the US eating
patterns considered being useful for preventing chronic diseases. It appears
that in Germany the situation might be slightly better. A recent survey
(DAK) showed that 78% of children take a traditional type of snack to
school. Nonetheless every sixth child is obese. Is the suggestion to improve
nutrition education among children realistic or should more efforts be made
to develop drugs for treating selectively processes associated with
overweight? Should ISMNT go in the direction of pharmacotherapy?
