Ridiculous Study of the Week: Americans are Fatter


Here is a ridiculous study gaining traction in the media.  You are not going to believe this but a new federal report reveals that U.S. men and women weigh about 15 lb. more than they did 20 years ago.  No sh&t! The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics didn’t give a reason for the increase in weight among modern Americans, but it’s clear that the U.S. is in an epidemic of obesity.  Ya’ think?  Good thing they spend taxpayers’ money trying to figure this out.  How about just looking around?

    Too many calories in SNAP foods. Fat babies make fat adults.
