    Half of America is eating itself into an early grave.

    About quarter of us are smoking ourselves into one, too.

    I guess the rest of Americans are going to live forever, right?

    3. mandatory exercise
    4. telescreens in the fridge
    5. rations
    6. bullying and humiliation?

    In 1998 the criteria changed making millions of people who arent obese now obese. Not only are not non obest suddenly and falsely obese but not muscular wihth low body fat are obese.

    Mandatory military service could be a way to stop obesity. E.g. 3-6 months mandatory military service after high school to get good knowledge about nutrition and pe. At the same time they can learn military skills and go into the reserve forces or if they want to serve in the army.
