When you were a child, you may have been told by your parents to finish everything on your plate. You may also have been forced to eat vegetables as punishment or you were given candy as a reward for good behavior. While such approaches to eating can be helpful in some circumstances, they are usually unhealthy and can contribute to obesity.
This week on “Take Care,” Dr. Cynthia Morrow talks about the unhealthy eating habits that are ingrained in American culture. Morrow is a public health physician and teaches public health and preventive medicine at Upstate Medical University.
