Letters: Telling Angelenos to eat less

Re “A little less to chew on,” Column, Nov. 28

One can only hope that Los Angeles County’s efforts to reduce food consumption are as successful as two other notable public health successes over the last few decades (both recently reported in The Times): the efforts to increase seat belt usage and to curtail cigarette smoking. Such efforts require education, legislation, enforcement and social change.

Changing food habits will probably be more difficult, but if there is the social will, it can be done. And it’s too important not to at least try.
