Biggest shocker of the week: If America's obesity trend continues at the rate it's going, obesity rates will be above 44 percent by 2030 in all 50 states. Half of our population, chubby. So big they're "obese!"
OK, so I'm guessing you're not really surprised. Heck, I thought that statistic was sort of low. We live in an economy where there are entire fairs around fatty foods, we actually have to BAN larger-than-life sodas, and something called the Funnel Bacakonator exists.
Thus, my friends, I present you with WHY America is heading toward 50 percent obese. Starting with how BIG they make clothes these days. I'm lookin' at you, XXXL.
