People, it's no mystery why we are fat. We are fat because the costs of being fat have fallen.
We don't have to be in shape to do our jobs and live our lives.
Calories have never been cheaper.
It has never been harder to die from a heart attack.
If you clog up your arteries they give you a pill, or router out the clogs, or just put in replacements. Hell, they'll even just give you a new heart if you destroy the one you have.
As a wise man once said, "solve for the equilibrium". All the Cass Sunstein's and Miguel Bloombitos, and Sarah Conly's of the world don't stand a chance.
Fat is the new skinny.
PS: should the opposite should be true for drugs and alcohol? Discuss
