Latest figures confirm the ridiculous: three out of four of you will be 'overweight or obese' by 2020. To gauge perspective: there are now more 'fat' people than 'white' people in America. Perhaps our bigots of the future will swing their hatred away from 'race' to the slim and healthy.

The shrinking minority are, indeed, the shrinking minority.

Stupid? Welcome to a population who know less about what they put into their mouths than they do about, well, take your pick...celebrities or cars or American Idol or iPhones? Animals have the intelligence to know what to eat and to never get fat (except the ones fed by humans). Yet that simple challenge, gaining nourishment without destroying the body, is beyond your capabilities?

Perhaps this crime is forgivable, purely symptomatic of the dietary 'misinformation' in circulation. However, the truly unforgivable stupidity has been in allowing this misinformation to propagate. To have believed the lies, to have fallen for the tricks, to have remained oblivious to the motives. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

This is why it's important to stop blindly following "recommendations" and do our own research. 

Big Money is controlling our diets/health/food supply/pocketbooks.  It's time to take back that control.
