    Get some exercise.

    Better than any medicine.

    When you have as many obese people as there are in the US - could you expect any other result?

      You mean people should take responsibility and save some of that 6-pack or that Twinkie for another time?

      That's ridiculous.

        Self dignity is healthy.

        Government or Health Insurance can't make you eat an apple instead of that 6-pack or Twinkie.  You can - it's called look in the mirror and take some God dammed responsibility for ones own well being.

        A little prevention goes a long way.

        Thinking any other way is ridiculous.

      every philosophy and ethnicity on earth had the crappy luck to have drawn only the morons.
