Intresting correlation, I totally missed that. The federal school lunch program has the dual purpose of first feeding children and second to absorb and distribute excess agricultural production (I very strongly suspect you could reverse the list priority depending on your economic interest though…ala food pyramid)
In my defense, I was stunned at magnitude of the faulty assumptions made by the CDC study and how the actual applicaton of real science by UAB exposed its defects. That, and that the study accidentally ended up being a fantastic sociological survey of self body image across regions of the U.S. I mean if i was a graduate student in sociology/psychology I could earn a Phd with that study. They would call me brilliant.
