If you have been alive longer than 5 years, You probably heard about obesity issue involving around in the western world. Now, we are not going to use this thread as a target to call fat people, meat eaters, vegans or such pieces of shit or whatever had you be. We are going to discuss, Economic, Social, Political facts that cause someone to gain an absurd amount of weight. This can also factor in person ignorance, Willpower, And inability to change their style due to addiction to fats and sugar. I'll start by saying it's a combination of issues, Sugar particularly High-Fructose corn-syrup. Things high in saturated fat, And portion size. I also feel that lack of strong education on reading labels and inability to purchase the meals inorder to cook due to busy lives or what not also play a huge role in it. I'll hold off on more reasons until more people post and get some diverse opinions here.
