And it is all a joke!
There are over 7.5 billion people on this planet.You think 20 to 25 % dying is a problem??
We all have to take responsibility for ourselves. If we give up our liberty and beg the government to take on the obesity problem for safety - we
will have neither!
The fat family that waddled out of MacDonalds - Fifty years ago - that family would have died of yellow fever, cholera or polio.
We should be celebrating the fact that the average age of death in the west is about 80 years. Fifty years ago, it was only 60. In fifty years, our
life span has increased by 20 years. Our children live relatively disease free lives and we don't bury our young mothers to birth fever.
And you mourn because some people are fat????? Talk about a first world problem.
Yes it hasn't escape me that obesity has risen in lockstep with the decrease in tobacco use. Nor has it escaped me that our children have more
asthma and allergy - also in lockstep with the decrease in tobacco use.
That is called collateral damage!
Public health does not have a clue what it is doing. It is nothing more than old time puritan religion, all dressed up in a white coat and demanding
to be worshipped!
Eat the way we tell you, go to bed when we tell you, exercise as we tell you, don't smoke, don't drink, eat only for nourishment and not pleasure.
Pleasure is banned! And in exchange for your faith and loyalty we promise you a longer, healthier life!
Its the same false promises. You know someone who is fat who died. I know someone who eats only a perpetual diet and exercises faithfully and hard,
3 X a week. She is only 40 and has ovarian cancer. The cancer has spread to her liver and kidneys and she is currently suffering premature renal
I guess people would sit back and say "hey she didn't worship hard enought" She ate too much, too little of whatever the current fad is (she
didn't drink or smoke). I am guessing she wishes she had experienced more pleasure in her short life and less discipline.
Its not for anyone to require another person to live as demanded. We are all born, we all die, we are all subject to disease.
