Everything in life is a sequence. The biggest corporations control the world. Even presidential candidates are chosen based on their willingness to biased decisions. America is getting fat, very fat actually. An obese working class is an unproductive class and subject to increased performance and pressure dictated at the highest level. If you want performance you have to be lean. Simple. Put a fat man in a desk, another fat man as his boss and pressure will mount in. Stress will increase the urges to eat more for the fat man who is now terrified about losing a job. His boss wants performance, the company needs performance to satisfy Wall Street. But - can the fat man really perform under stress? - No. The fat man will actually eat more under stress and will fire himself. Who to blame? The big corporations like Mc Donalds and the Media all in pro of eating more and more!!
The US is indeed the LARGEST economy and population. Aside from more health conscious spots like Miami, LA, NY and may be couple of other niches it dumbfounds me how obese this population really is. It only furthers addresses the divide between the classes where the 1% who can does not give a nickel if the other 99% survives, lives healthy or not. What are the largest industries in the US? Pharmaceuticals. How do you retro-feed pharmaceuticals and keep selling drugs? By making people unhealthy. And how do you keep people unhealthy? By infusing them with ill filled foods. And who sells those foods? Again, the other group of largest corporations aka Mc Donalds, etc? And how do you distribute those foods or instill them in the masses? By Media. And who owns the Media? The other largest group in corporations. The model is perfect...but only to the American detriment. Now, one would think this will eventually finish the largest corporations right? Wrong. Because the largest corporations will start and actually already are outsourcing healthier workers...for a third of the money. More productivity, less money... Where does that leave the American people in a few more years? Only as consumers and since they have been brainwashed they will just keep on consuming.
