Nanny State News - Christina To Keep us Lean

Argentina Lurches Toward an Obesity Law… | The Temas Blog
By all accounts, Argentina’s Senate will pass an “obesity law” this coming week. If President Cristina Fernandez signs it, Argentina will become the first Latin American or Caribbean (LAC) country to adopt a national law or regulation directly addressing the issue. [Some Brazilian states have laws on aspects of the issue, and several nations currently have bills pending on the subject.]

Will the new Argentine law deserve brickbats or bouquets, or both?

I'm all for improving food choices but give me a break. Does anyone, besides the ego maniacs that draft such legislation, believe that government can solve this problem?
