Why Are Americans "Eating Themselves To Death"?
LiveReal Digs In
On March 9th, 2004, the Associated Press reported a story stating that we are literally "eating ourselves to death" in America
It's a situation that's deadly. "In 2000, poor diet including obesity and physical inactivity caused 400,000 U.S. deaths — more than 16 percent of all deaths and the No. 2 killer. That compares with 435,000 for tobacco, or 18 percent, as the top underlying killer."
And it's not only deadly - it's really expensive, too: a related story claimed that "obesity-related medical costs . . . reached a total of $75 billion in 2003 . . . The public pays about $39 billion a year — or about $175 per person — for obesity through Medicare and Medicaid programs, which cover sicknesses caused by obesity.
"It's the American Dream!
We've finally found the Lake of Chocolate!!"
But once again, it seems to us that nobody is asking the important questions or really getting to the root of the matter.
So, this sounds like a job
for your loveable, huggable,
voluptuous, Rubinesque, weight-friendly LiveReal Agents.
When it comes to saving the lives
(and billions of dollars) of our fellow-Americans,
we don't mind asking the important questions
- even when they're tough.
So you want to come along for the ride?
Stellar! And heeeeeeere we go:
Why are Americans "eating themselves
(By the way - we heard rumors that the government is funding a multi-trillion-dollar commission to really, really, really get down to the bottom of this issue.
No offense . . . but what a bunch of boobs. "Dear Congressperson: Why not give even a tiny, tiny fraction of that money to LiveReal? I'm sure that we could waste that money at least as well as those other suits. Sincerely, the folks at LiveReal.).
