Study estimates that half of US adults will be obese by 2030

I once read that currently in the United States a third of people are obese, a third of people are overweight, and a third of people are at a normal weight. Now, a study claims by 2030, the start of the next decade, half of Americans will be obese.

  1. The western diet is a disaster for obesity levels. Veganism seems to be a sustainable and effective way to combat westernised diets. I’m dairy intolerant and so I have recently had to make some drastic changes to improve my diet. It is helping a lot, but the options are limited and you have to prepare and plan. You only have to look to China and Japan for their longevity and lack of cancers and heart disease in the native populations, perhaps with the exception of pancreatic cancer. The Japanese, especially, are quite partial to their sake and that will unfortunately contribute.

    1. Choice certainly is a factor. It takes discipline and planning to eat like you do. And some people keep saying diets like yours are what is needed to fight climate change. It all makes me wonder if some politicians, people in power, in the future will try to control more of what people eat.
