Being a Navajo. From what I have seen on many Indian reservations in the southwest portion of USA, its the Indians themselves who make poor choices in what they put in their mouths, not the government, not the tribal councils, but the Indians themselves. Many know full well and are completely informed of the negative effects of over indulging in foods and beverages of all sorts, but keep on doing it. If you think this is not true, just go sit outside a local Indian reservation quick store and see what they buy. Its sometimes shocking whats for breakfast. This is learned and picked up by children too. We need only blame ourselves for the state, on all levels, not just the food, of Indian Country today.
