The out. The drinks and food that we

The most sensitive topic of obesity in America is hardly talked about, millions of Americans are aware of it, yet they still continue to order take out. The drinks and food that we eat as people is disgusting, even if we had the ingredients in front of our faces we make up the excuse of “Everything in moderation.” More than 2 in 3 adults were considered to be overweight or have obesity (NIDDK). It is understandable that we are busy as a nation we are always on the go, but why do companies, and fast food industry take advantage? Or is it that we are too tired and lazy to make food ourselves? The simple truth is that obesity plays many roles from genetics, food choices, and physical activity. It is up to us to make the healthy choices and actively choice fruits over cheeseburgers.

A research was done with the differences of family members, this showed how variations affected if the person overate, or if the body naturally stored more body fat than normal. Metabolism was also found to see if it was ‘fast or slow’. They came up with the conclusion that while yes, genetics did make a person more obese, it was not always your body’s instruction to make you overweight it is up to the person to stay at a normal weight range. Environmental factors and multiple genes in our chromosomes are too complex to rule out.( Center of Disease Control and Prevention).

Fast food is the main cause of a rising obesity problem not just the United State but among the world
