I also believed that Canada would be second behind the USA with the obesity
- Sorry Canada... my bad! We are actually 11th. 'Whew!'
The issue - who is the fattest- is NOT the issue.
These things are killing us and yes they are all legal.. and we just keep buying into it.
So WHY do we do it? It's the normal way of life. Where can you go and not be tempted by any of the 3 or have them in your face all the time. Storm and I have had several conversation about fast food lately. I've not been feeling great and cooking not my favorite past time as it is but - every time I eat fast food lately (with the exception of Burger priest or Swiss Chalet ) I'm talking McD's or KFC> I feel sick. So why - EASE and like the millions of you I was raised with this. IT IS LACK of Education.
TEACH your kids - if you do this now then chances are they might just want to be the incredible beings they are meant to be!! BE honest!! SHOW them the facts. Teach by example. I read some kids only ever get French Fries as their vegetable.
All things in life should be sampled if you are fortunate enough - but "super-size that and add gravy!" has to stop.
I wrote 'in the USA' because those are the facts. Mexico a close second.. If Canada was the fattest it would say it in this cartoon. Perhaps I should have said in the world but that is not true- too many people in the world have everything BUT Obesity to die from.
My wish for today is someone sees this cartoon and RE-thinks the next time they eat out,
pours another or buys another pack of smokes. EVEN that tiny thought can be a start.
Time to break away from the "sheeple" and do what is right. Look after each other.
How about spending a little less money on sending people to prison and spending on educating our children - properly - truthfully on HEALTH. KARMA and compassion.
THIS IS GROSS.
On several levels. Pollution, death, lung cancer.
When walking my dogs the other day on the edge of the Walmart parking lot this is what you see the entire path.
THIS should be illegal.
This was just a tiny bit of the way.
IT IS like that the entire distance.
