There is fat epidemic in the United States and a couple of other
places (Canada, Ireland). Some people would have you believe they are fat because of their genes.
Unfortunatly, this flies in the face of basic logic: Americans are
fatter today than they were a hundred years ago. Genes don't morph that fast.
Mexicans aren't particularly fat in Mexico, when they live in the USA they are huge. People who live in the subburbs are fatter then people who live in the iner city.
More importantly, ask a fat person what sport they play. Almost invariably, you will draw a blank stare. Now, granted, maybe they don't exercise (walking is NOT exercise) because they are fat. But I suspect it is the other way around.
Fat people die young. They get heart desease and colen cancer and the rest. Fat people who smoke, don't get me started.
My point is that being pre-disposed to being overweight (which history tells us would only be a small fraction of the population, if at all),is not an excuse to be lazy and not exercise, it should be the motivator to get moving.
