America The Obese: Is There A Multibillion Dollar Conspiracy To Make Sure Americans Stay Overweight?

zerohedge:

The national rate of obesity has risen to an all-time high of 27.7 percent. That is up from 27.1 percent in 2013.

70 percent of all Americans are overweight at this point.

One of the primary reasons why most of us are overweight is due to how our food is made. The American diet is highly processed and it is absolutely packed with obesity-causing ingredients such as sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

Residents in these areas are less likely to eat healthily and exercise, and are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, diabetes, cancer and heart attacks.

Cancer, heart disease and diabetes are all huge money makers for the medical establishment. If you can believe it, 100 billion dollars was spent on cancer drugs last year alone. So there are people out there that are becoming exceedingly wealthy from all of our misery.

Right now, if the U.S. health care system was a separate country, it would be the 6th largest economy on the entire planet.

60 billion dollars a year is spent on weight loss programs and products in the United States.
