Completely agree

I didn't see supersize, but I definitely buy the food guys setting us up for the drug companies. I don't think they have a conspiracy, I just think it all fits together a little too neatly. For some reason, our bodies react positively to processed crap, even while it is killing us. Which leads us from being good processed food consumers to good medical industry consumers. Start young with TV, funnel the consumers into fast foods, piece of crap transpo options, keep em alive long enough to leverage a ton of medical money out of them: it's all good to corporate world.

Re: It's not the carbs...

That's right, attack with stupid soundbite logic. If you don't like his conclusions, you can make a much stronger point by being civil instead of racking up cute rhetoric points.

Just because we started washing our hands and installing running water and sanitary plumbing is no reason to knock a guy calling out the US's bad eating habits. You checked out how freaking fat Americans are lately?

PS Back in the day, some hardy folks were living as long as the longest we have today; you might call that situation natural selection. Evolution, even. The weak perish and the strong survive.

We're all going to die. I'm not so sure the US fascination with the medical industry is such a good idea.

Glass houses, pal

How long does it take your ass to unpucker after riding with all your weight on it? Why stick your legs out in front of you? To paraphrase the great one (johnnyb), if that riding position is so wonderful how come we don't see statues of great cavalrymen riding with their ankles up by the horses ears? One of the reasons I like Buells is that your feet actually take some of your body weight, unlike HD.

Of course, even after enjoying my Buell test ride, I don't think I can own one until I can sit on it at a stop light without losing my fillings. I know it smooths out when you get going, but that shaking! It's a complete joke. Give me a 90 degree twin or a counterbalanced engine any day.

People probably weren't dying of heart attacks and dementia. Sure the life span has increased but that is because they keep people artificially alive in nursing homes.

Re: It's not the carbs...

Americans are fat by choice, not from some backroom planning by fast food chains and drug companies.

I've been fit all my life and I managed to escape the clutches of the evil tobacco companies as well.

E-glider finally figured out at 50 that slamming 1/4 pounders makes one fat. Imagine!

I agree, Americans are fat. They got that way all by themselves though.
