The rate of childhood obesity is on the rise, and within a generation a majority of children and teenagers may be overweight. At the same time, the rate of anorexia, or refusal to maintain a body weight that is above a fraction of what is considered normal, in both male and female teenagers, is also on the increase, because these people fear becoming "too fat".

Which of the following would be an effective solution to reduce both obesity and anorexia in young people?


A. Encourage healthy, adequate diets and reasonable exercise from an early age
B. Impose a strict dietary regime on a large scale at all ages
C. Segregate schools by weight level, e.g., obese, normal, and anorexic
D. Treat young people with psychotic drugs to relieve the depression that may come from abnormal weight
E. Ban sugar-sweetened soft drinks
