    Oh, Jeesus ...... :rolleyes:

    We hear it all the time - America has an obesity problem. It's true - America is home to more obese people than any other country in the world. But when it comes to our health, the message doesn't seem to sink in. When surveyed, only 36 percent of Americans say that they're overweight, according to the most recent Gallup poll. That's nearly less than half the amount that actually are: 66 percent of American adults are either overweight or obese, according to a Lancet study published in May.
    Essentially, most people don't report being overweight, even though most are.

    And most people are obese because they stuff their mouths with cheap processed garbage.
