What would you do if you were told you had a potentially fatal disease? How would you feel learning that this disease was like a giant, foreign body in itself, attached to you and capable of producing its own hormones and toxins while stealing critical nutrients from you to feed its self ultimately growing to the point of – directly or indirectly – killing you? This disease will go even further to kick start and support diabetes, heart disease, and cancer for you as well… This disease is obesity.
Obesity in America – it’s not an epidemic, it’s the norm. It sure seems that way anyhow. The next time you’re out, take a good look around you. Notice the people about? Sadly, most will have a common denominator, and it’s not a healthy one. Fat is the fad and most of us sport plenty of it. Really, there’s so much fat walking, shopping, working, moving, and jiggling everywhere, we don’t even bat an eye at it.
