Yes, ofc you agree because it's true.
Well chew on this:
Obesity Epidemic a Threat to U.S. Military Personnel and National Security
Susan Blumenthal, M.D.: Obesity: America's Next Great National Security Threat?
Obesity is a national security risk. Like it or not, the government has to intervene or else it won't be able to defend the people.
Not to mention, the military has huge problems tuning their entrance metrics. They do NOT check fat percentage but rather use the outdated BMI. A bodybuilder may show up as obese under the BMI.
I've yet to see a powerful civic movement that isn't in some way connected to the government do something about it. Especially from the republicans who keep yelling about the nanny state. They are all a bunch of talkers.
If you don't start fixing this problem now, what chance will there be to fix it later down the line. or are you hoping that it'll fix itself? How will that happen if nothing is changed. The trend will continue. Next year there % of obese kids and adults will grow by a little bit.. then by a little bit more and by a little bit more until what do you know... it's unfixable except through drastic measures and then you'll see a real nanny state. Or, there will be a collapse. People don't think that obesity can bring down a nation... a nation is only as strong as the individuals in it, and if a large % of those individuals are tubs of lards, then the nation is a tub of lard. Very patriotic of you... not giving a damn about the defense of the nation.
Ok, I agree that BMI is BS but I don't think you can seriously say, with a straight face that those kids who are obese between the ages of 2 and 19 are bodybuilders. They're all children of arnold swarzenegger I'm sure.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
