Why is the CDC not have a national conversation about obesity? Who knows, maybe the CDC is trying but the media won't touch it?Get outside, get to a gym, stop snacking, portion control. Diet of choice.
“The largest descriptive study yet of hospitalized U.S. COVID-19 patients, posted as a preprint last month by Genentech researchers, found that 77% of nearly 17,000 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 were overweight (29%) or obese (48%). (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines overweight as having a BMI of 25 to 29.9 kilograms per square meter, and obesity as a BMI of 30 or greater.)
Another study captured the rate of COVID-19 hospitalizations among more than 334,000 people in England. Published last month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, it found that although the rate peaked in people with a BMI of 35 or greater, it began to rise as soon as someone tipped into the overweight category. “Many people don’t realize they creep into that overweight category,” says first author Mark Hamer, an exercise physiologist at University College London.“

Obesity rates have really good correlation with Covid experience in nations. Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam- all incredibly low obesity rates 2%- 6% range. Vietnam- 90 million people- 35 deaths- 2% obesity.
But Trump! That's why we are not hearing much about obesity right now- it goes against the orange man bad narrative of the media. If obesity is the real underlying issue that exacerbates the covid problem then it wouldn't be Trump's fault. So let's not discuss.
The media is the enemy of the people. It should be the voice of the people and the voice of truth. Instead it is the voice of lies and propaganda.
