    Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a detrimental effect on health, resulting in reduced life expectancy, while increasing health problems on a grand scale. Approximately 1 out of every 3 adults in the United States are obese or overweight. Obesity is defined by ones body mass index, or BMI.

Children that used to die due to infectious disease are surviving at higher rates than ever due to treatment, however, kids are now more obese and are getting sick from being too fat. It doesn't take a think-tank of Nobel Prize winners to realize that humans are starting to eat far more than they need to.  These days, people don't eat to live, they live to eat. People eat too damn much and we're just not doing enough to educate the public on the dire consequences of poor eating habits. After all, Michelle Obama came out and said that kids should eat more fruit and vegetables and that somehow got her tagged as a socialist. The woman essentially said two plus two equals four and not everyone agreed with her. It was weird. One person said
