Does this suprise you? It did me....

"We were surprised by the frequency of obesity among the severe cases that we are tracking," Schuchat said. It is not clear whether being obese makes a patient more vulnerable, or if the numbers reflect how common obesity in now in the U.S. population, she said.

  • Not surprised at all. We treat our bodies like garbage dumps; we don't pay any attention to what we eat. The US has the highest obesity rate in the industrialized world, along with the highest rate of type 2 Diabetes and the fastest growing infant mortality rate. Our medical schools don't teach our doctors about nutrition; our public schools don't teach our children about nutrition and the foods in the public schools are loaded with fat, sodium and toxins.
