Obesity in America

Biggest Health Issue Facing America

In his book, “The Coming Jobs War”, Jim Clifton states that one of the biggest health issues facing America is the problem of Obesity. He states, “The CDC concludes that more than two-thirds of American adults, aged 20 and older, are simply to fat.Approximately one-third of Americans are a healthy weight, one-third are overweight, and one-third are obese. This is a significant contributor to roughly 70% of the $2.5 trillion annual healthcare expense.” It’s probably higher now considering that Clifton’s book was published in 2011.

The Cannabinoid System

In researching the problem of obesity in America, I was surprised to find that new medical studies have shown that weight gain is not only a matter of how much we eat, but more importantly how our bodies metabolize the food we eat. In the book “You Staying Young” by Dr.s Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz They go into great detail about the chemical system in the body called the Cannabinoid System. They state that this system not only dictates how well our bodies metabolize food, but also how hungry we feel and even the foods we crave.

Blocked Neural Receptors

It has to do with the neural pathways in our brains and throughout our bodies, and the fact that a lot of the neural receptors in our bodies  are closed or blocked. When these neural receptors are closed we simply do not metabolize food as well as we should and as such always feel hungry.

Best Kept Secret In America

Scientists are just now starting to understand these processes, but considering the book “You Staying Young” was published in 2007, I’m surprised how little publicity this issue has gotten, and how few doctors have even heard about it, considering it directly affects the #1 health problem facing America today.

Big Business Has A Vested Interest In Keeping It Quiet

Could it be, that because this research refutes the basic claims of the billion dollar Diet and Nutrition industry, that this information is being censored? Is this just another example were big business impedes the health of America?  Diet and Nutrition are big business in America, and they have a vested interest in refuting any research that runs counter to their firm beliefs, that weight gain is primarily based on how much you eat and exercise.
