The Fattening Of America: Obesity Rates Hit Record High, Doctors Blame Cars & Poverty (ZeroHedge, June 23 , 2015):

74% of American men are either overweight or Obese (up from 63% in 1994) according to a new report using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. As MSN reports, the researchers exclaim “obesity is not getting better. It’s getting worse, and it’s really scary. It’s not looking pretty,” warning that America’s “car dependence” and poverty (“processed and fast foods are less expensive”) are to blame and America’s weight problem is an issue that will not be resolved through a purely medical solution. “This generation of Americans is the first that will have a shorter life expectancy than the previous generation.”

    In this day and age obesity for anyone over 16 is unacceptable.

    The causal evidence is in your face and there is a plethora of sources offering no cost self discipline guides to deal with it and get out of the trap.

    The system has been designed to encompass the weak mindset into bad food slavery, and they unfortunately seem a lost cause, on whom continued effort is wasted.

    Food Junkies is a good analogy.
