I agree with this thread, but threads like these get little response on ATS.
Why you ask? Because ATS has a huge portion of people who like to do nothing more then whine and complain about all the bad things in the world, yet
if it's turned around and they're shown things they themselves can do to improve their health, they want no part of it as it takes effort. Much
easier to whine about atrocities elsewhere than to look at yourself and change your lifestyle for the better.
Add to that many on ATS seem to sit at their computers all day, I'd wager a fair amount here are overweight, largely inactive and could do a whole
lot more to live a healthier lifestyle.
I posted a long thread detailing how obesity is draining our country as we spend billions attempting to counteract it. We spend more money trying to
counteract the growing obesity epidemic than we do smoking. Yet, only a handful cares. After all the whining about GMO in our food supply, I posted a
detailed thread outlining exactly what foods do and do not contain GMO, down to the brands, yet again, few responses. I've seen a few threads
promoting a healthier lifestyle and how to lose weight, yet again those are largely ignored.
ATS is just a microcosm of what we all see every day. People love to whine and shift blame, dare I say even gossip about what's going on in the
world, but are completely disinterested in anything regarding responsibility.
