This is a long but interesting article with stories of the marketing and science of junk food over the last few decades.

Now I'm off to make hummous to eat with carrot sticks..
Wow! That is one hell of an article, and it pinpoints quite accurately just how this has all worked out, and why so many are so fat. Yes, personal responsibility comes into play quite heavily, but it becomes much harder to fight your body when the food you're eating is sending mixed signals purposefully designed to make you want more.

Thanks for posting that, teacake. I bookmarked it!
