"The findings published in the Journal of the American Medical Association are alarming with the obesity levels in Britain fast approaching those in the U.S. Three in five adults are overweight or obese possibly explaining the 40,000 babies a year born prematurely, the highest in Europe."

IOW Americans are more fat, than all the countries of Europe.  That is why I continue to say....

Fat America -- unhealthy. disgusting. unappealing.  slovenly.  disrespectful of God's gift of one's life.

All in all, America's performance in this regard is pretty low information. Cuz the entire truth is these overweight people have known about foods' contents for decades, and the benefits of exercize, but just ignore it out of laziness.

Should have seen the family waiting for their car yesterday at the Chevy Dealer... and they were driving a compact.  Mom, dad and grown daughter were all well over 350 pounds EACH.....

Be careful what you wish for; this will play quite nicely into the hands of the public health nazis like NYC mayor Bloomberg.

If anything, this would seem to disprove the notion that America's relatively poor standing among developed countries in regard to life expectancy and infant mortality has anything to do with our health care system. We're just eating too much and moving too little (and by moving, I do not mean simply contrived exercises).

Again, I think EBT is a major cause of this.

Actually, most of that poor standing is based on the fact that we don't have a universal health care system - i.e., the US gets a bad grade for not having a free-loaders' system, without regard to the actual outcomes of the system we do have.
