The people of america can't afford not to be obese, it costs too much money to buy healthy unprocessed foods not in a bag or out of a can. The food industry has spent so much money on preserving food for storage and world travel that all the nutrition and healthy elements of food groups has been removed from the food. Whats left is salt, and saline solutions that have no health benefits.

Perhaps government regulation to stop and prevent preservation processing of food so people can receive the nourishment they need for their bodies. Instead of processing food into garbage we need laws to stop processing of foods so more of it is on the fresh food areas of the store. Stop the process of food for convince and easy, thats why Americans don't eat healthy, the food industry is removing the nutrition and brain food from the foods.

That's OK, keep eating all the junk food you want, drink all the sugary drinks you want, don't EVER exercise! Obamacare will pay for all the resulting bad health consequences anyway.
