Well, what's going on in Japan actually doesn't look too bad. Eating healthier and exercising more will probably improve their daily lives. It'd be nice to be in an environment that encourages you to be healthy (living in the out right now may have biased me a bit).
So... incentives to lose weight? I approve. But punishing fat people... not so much. Also the inch thing is probably too arbitrary. Body fat percentage would be more accurate, but too expensive.

This is the main problem, especially in the US. The FDA is such a joke, and we're letting them poison us.
