Healthy Living, Longer Life

Nearly 70% of American adults are either overweight or obese, an epidemic proportion.

Being obese puts you at a higher risk for health problems such as heart disease, stroke, high

blood pressure, and diabetes, etc. What causes obesity? Fast food restaurants, eating too much,

moving too little, and lack of government intervention are all causes of obesity (stated by?) “Fast

Food is the New Tobacco”. Fast food consumption has taken its place as the number-one cause

of health issues and concerns. The government and the fast-food industry need to be should be

more forthcoming, take some responsibility, and advise consumers that there are negative

dietary consequences and implications to consuming such nutrients on a regular basis.

for their fast food consumption. Another study says the full effect of added sugars from soda and

energy drinks are affecting Americans waistlines. It is not just how much we eat, but it is what

we eat.
