  • because obesity is a disease, not just because skinny people eat.

  • because this is america, not a 3rd world country.

    fast pace lifestyle means more convenience foods and fast food which means more fat people.

  • Because our food supply sucks. Also, a lot of people do not know how to cook or to make the right choices in their diets. For someone who is not really akin to buying and using fresh ingredients in their cooking, it's easier to buy a box of Hamburger Helper, some frozen french fries, and a tube of ground beef. It's also horrible that a bag of oreos cost less than a container of fresh watermelon ($5.24 was the container I bought today). Also, there's HFCS in everything. The ingredients in our foods do not help. Plus, people are sedentary for the most part.

  • Where do you get your stats from? This question is pure laughable, sorry, but it is. Did you mean it to be?
