    “The ‘fat American’ isn’t true”
    You obviously don’t live in Michigan!

    I read about a study that suggested that slightly overweight person may have a lower mortality rate than someone of normal or underweight. However the study was flawed in that the group of normal or underweight persons included cancer and terminally ill patients, whom already have a shorter than average life expectancy.

    I have to agree with Ima. It’s beyond absurd that some people in this country are dying of health issues related to eating too much while others literally starve to death. I read an estimate somewhere that around the world, 1 person dies of starvation every 4 seconds. Just some food for thought.

    Its about obesity. You can eat $.99 cheeseburgers all day everyday and still be fat. Its all about empty calories.

    Ima said, “It has the biggest union membership state in the country. No ‘right to work’ law.”

    Wow. Ima thinks that Michican is “Democrats from top to bottom?” What the hell? He’s a bigger idiot than I thought. Michigan’s Republican governor, Republican senate, and Republican house have been in the news ALL YEAR. Please, if you are SO IGNORANT, please LEARN SOMETHING before you WASTE OUR TIME.

    Poorer people eat foods that are not healthy, but do add weight. Just because a person is obese does not mean they are getting enough of the food they need. They can be starving of the vitamins and minerals they need.

    Obesity is choice. Pure and simple.

    Instead of carbs, eat vegetables. You’ll lose lbs. And save money.

    “Vegetables cost money and don’t last long. I can’t eat fresh vegetables every meal. Neither can they. I know they are important but I have financial limits. Now that is simple to understand isn’t it?”

    Yes, you CAN eat vegetables with every meal. I do.

    You have ‘financial limits’. So do I. Vegetables are cheaper than fast food.

    Compassion? I have chronic disease, pre-existing. Not eligible for public or private insurance. Pay out of pocket.

    Why is it vile, all it says is you cannot make a company take money out of a employee’s paycheck and send it to the Union, the Union member has to do that. Twenty four states now have such laws are you saying that half the country is vile.

    Malnourishment includes eating “junk foods” and is the reason so many Americans are morbidly obese. One of my nieces had bariatcric surgery and lost weight, an entire “me” of 180 pounds! She still weighs around 180, she’s 5’5", and I’m 5’11 and I still look to take off another 10-15 pounds. I was up to 194 and found it “uncomfortable”. Of course at age 35 I weighed 135 and was very physically active in my job, and ran seven miles, seven times a day, after work.


    NOt everyone needs to be that physically active, and I do walk my dog pretty much every day for a mile and a half, so it isn’t all that hard, but the real culprit does seem to be American “diet”, which typically includes about 4 times the caloroies reaquired to sustaing metabolism, and it’s mostly junk, not food. A “little” on the heavy side, BMI of 25 or 26 isn’t so bad, but a BMI of 30+ where it is NOT weight due to muscle mass, is a good way to die.

    There is no reason to be insulting. If the member does not pay his dues then the Union can let him go and still keep his job.
