Why ignore the obesity rate?

Thursday, April 29, 2010

The article linked above never mentions the obesity rate. It says, "Canadians live longer, healthier lives than Americans, likely due to the United States' lack of universal health care and lower levels of social and economic equality, a new study suggests." Seemed to me to be a big assumption there. They never mentioned the most logical answer. If you go look at the obesity rates of developed countries,
aph/hea_obe-health-obesity, and compare it to mortality rates of those same countries,
-total-population, you can pretty quickly come a conclusion. If you need any further motivation to get fit, think real hard about the obese people you see and ask yourself how many of them have lived past their life expectancy.

I wish there was a way to count how many people will live to see their grandbabies because of Sparkpeople.
