I wrote my comments under the Video Podcast, but I thought I might make a few more here.
1) Safety and accessibility have a lot to do with people making the choice to be active. We have to make safe bike and walking paths, and we need to make them popular enough that the "herd" can protect individual members.

2) What role does the small family unit, and the video game sector, play in being less active?

3) Because we eat such calorie dense meals now, is it possible to even maintain a "normal" weight with just more activity?

4) And finally, what role does light play in keeping us "unfit"? We don't seem to sleep as often, or as well, as people did when I was a youngster. So we are awake longer but less active- is there some kind of corollary there?

Thanks for a great talk, Kevin
