Obesity Death Toll Heavier Than Previously Thought.

Wow, a three fold increase? That's a lot. I always thought that obesity-related deaths were too low, but three times too low? That's depressing. We need a better approach to handling this. There's a whole bunch we can be doing to encourage people to eat better and exercise more.

Poverty is the major factor involved in this. So that won't be changing in the US anytime soon, and will likely get worse.

So you're saying people are too LAZY to go outside and run around for a while every day? Okay... Rolleyes

I fixed that for you. Eating right and exercising is not a poor people problem. There are a whole bunch of politicians that would like you to think so, but the reality is that as our jobs and hobbies become more and more sedentary, we get fatter and fatter.

People are lazy, and it's far easier to assume the gubment has approved all the food you wants to stuff yo face wit so it be safe and why do I needs to exercise?

My wife gets fatter every year because she refuses to get off her ass and work out. We eat the same food, but she eats a lot more of it. It's a pretty damn simple problem that people want to make complex to feel better about their own fat, lazy asses. It's the same reason everyone seems to have a "thyroid condition" now. Hey, fatty, that pie hole you keep jamming with food is not called a thyroid.

I had an employee who could not figure out why her little girl was so overweight. 1 - You are massively overweight. You are supposed to be her role model. 2 - The kid is CONSTANTLY eating. 3 - She does nothing but watch TV. I can't figure it out either.

EDIT: Yes, I do realize that some people have legitimate medical conditions that result in them being overweight. I also realize that the number of people who really have those conditions is far smaller than the number who claim to have those conditions.
