Happy Fourth of July: eat and be happy, Obesity In America

Filed under: American Culture,Weight issue — admin @ 12:41 am

When I think of 4th of July, I think of America.
When I think of American, images of obese figures emerge. Therefore, ironically, celebration of America seems like celebration of obesity.

Thanks to NPR National Public Radio, we have these facts and numbers on obesity in America — “Obesity In America, By The Numbers” May 19, 2011. I know these figures are two years old and we surely have much more of them now. Still, isn’t that something that Mississippi has the highest obesity rate and also with the highest percentage of people living in poverty? This article presents many useful figures and facts on obesity in America.

Also, if Long John Silver’s is your favorite restaurant, read this one -‘Heart Attack On A Hook’: Meet America’s ‘Worst Restaurant Meal‘ – and think again next time you want to visit it.
