Black Friday, Consumerism, and Obesity

Hieronymus Bosch

Today we enter a 6 week stretch from Black Friday to New Year Day, where one could easily get carried away with too much shopping and eating. A “danger zone” in an already obesogenic environment. We are bombarded from all angles to buy more and eat more, and between Thanksgiving and Christmas, because it’s the holiday season, we feel obliged to comply.

So this holiday season, use common sense, friends. Eat, drink, and take advantage of seasonal sales. Just don’t go crazy…
