Obesity

Demetrio Abarca

Is more government regulation the answer to the obesity epidemic?

Yes, Mr.Bailey a health worker says that unhealthy food is slowly killing his community. Because of this the local Governments decided to step in. They are creating experiments with the money that comes from the Obama care act. Scientist say that they doubt the experiments will work. This might be because one simply has to chose to be healthy you can't make them most of the people will not participate for the experiments.

Obese People necessities.

Obesity costs more than smoking for health care. That's crazy because smoking was one of the biggest problems worldwide and obesity beat its ranking. People have recommended to the government that healthy food and gym's should be cheaper. Food industries put high prices on their vegetables and fruits. Gym's should be cheaper and maybe people would start going but i doubt that because one can simply be working out at home.

Their choices.

People want the Government to play a role in obesity. Maybe the government is trying to help out, but some people say that obese people choose not to do anything about their weight or what they eat. Statistics show that people simply choose not to get involved in any physical activity. It's their choice though, they decide if they want to eat healthy or unhealthy or to either choose a well balanced life or to end it sooner.
