The National Football League doing their part to tackle obesity

If you were like me and tens of millions of other Americans on Thanksgiving last week, then your eyes were glued to the television set all day watching the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, and all the rest of the teams playing that day entertain us from noon until night. It’s a tradition that has become so ingrained in our culture that advertisers EXPECT to have a large television audience that day.
