1. India is in the midst of a health transition. As the prevalence of infectious diseases continues to decline, Type 2 diabetes and obesity are emerging as major public health concerns. Urbanization and industrialization have transformed India into a global economic powerhouse. However, India's economic boom has lead to lifestyle changes, such as a decrease in daily physical activity coupled with an increase in sedentary behavior, as well as the replacement of traditional foods with fast foods and store-bought, packaged foods that are high in fat and calories. These lifestyle changes are responsible for the emergence of the twin epidemics of diabetes and obesity.

  2. BZD Productions spoke with Obama merchandise vendors in the DC area. Most of the people we spoke with were there just for the inauguration. Some had come from far away, others saw an opportunity to promote their store, and for most this event allowed people to take their economic shortfalls into their own hands.
