Obesity Is Not the Governments Business Decides Intelligence Squared U.S. Audience
Last night, Intelligence Squared U.S. continued its spring 2012 season with a sold-out debate and a victory against the motion Obesity is the Governments Business. In the final tally, John Stossel and Paul Campos won the Oxford style debate by convincing 16% of the audience to change their minds and oppose the motion. Overall 55% of audience members agreed that government should be involved in public health initiatives to combat obesity.
