According to a 2001 report in Newsweek, six million kids in America were overweight. Ten years later that number has now easily surpassed twenty million. Teens are now one third of all new diagnoses of diabetes. We’re getting fatter and sicker. Increases in weight have caused a skyrocketing of chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, lipid disorders, cardiovascular disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and kidney disease. Weight-related disorders also include orthopedic problems, depression, sleep apnea, infertility, and low sex drive.
The drug manufacturers have a pill for everything with more potential side effects than benefits; none of which address the source of the problem. We are eating ourselves to death and lying out on the couch watching TV waiting for the coroner. We’re fat! We will die early or live a life of misery. Those are the options: DEAD or DYING. That SUCKS. We must get serious about maintaining a healthy weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle. The choice is yours.
