People, I'm warning you ...... it's the food police on patrol! Now that smoking is down, these do-gooders need a new cause ..... and it's open season on what you eat!
I have a friend who came down with a number of things. The diseases and the medication caused her to gain over 100 lbs. Everytime a new doctor comes in, he tells her if she would lose the weight, she'd be fine. He doens't even stop to find out that it's her medical condition that caused the weight gain, not the weight gain that caused the medical condition!
My husband is a big guy! He goes the doctor for regular checkups. His blood pressue, cholestrol, heart, EVERYTHING is perfect!!!!!!!!! He's healthier than anyone on here.
I'm sick of people implying that he and my friend are the reason health care costs are up. In my never so humble opinion, insurance companies have the blame for a lot of it..... first, the top 10 guys at Wellpoint make over $50 BILLION dollars a year! You're telling me THAT doesn't contribute to the cost of health care? second, you can't just go get something taken care of anymore .... your insurance company rquires forty-eleven different tests first. You're telling me THAT doesn't contribute to the cost of health care?
I'm sick of "the public" looking around and deciding that people are fat just due to lack of control (as was insinuated in a very early post on here). There are so many factors that contribute, but it's now become open season on those people. Why are we not looking at the additives that make chickens bigger? Do you think those chemicals are not also affecting those of us who eat those chickens?
The Food Police .... they are lurking! Beware!!
I apologize for the rant..... I so agree with the other comments. It's cake! It's not SUPPOSE to be healthy!
