Obesity Epidemic Set to Swallow America Whole by 2048
Oh, here is a new study that predicts somehow the Earth will still be here in 2048! Krazy scientists! Oh well, enjoy the taste of your anusburgers a few more years before we are all hooked up to IV bags stuffed with liquid McNuggets and opium, for freedom.
The study, released this week in the journal Obesity, suggests that by the year 2030, nearly every American will be overweight or obese.
Currently, figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the prevalence of overweight and obesity in adults at about 66 percent. But lead study author Dr. Youfa Wang of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore says that if current overweight and obesity trends continue, 86 percent of Americans could be overweight or obese by the year 2030.
Even more troubling, the authors note, "By 2048, all American adults would become overweight or obese."
