America!  We are fat as f*ck.  News like this is depressing especially considering the current economic situation in the USA.  Maybe if we weren’t all disgustingly fat we could be more productive and compete globally.  Then again we live in a country where it is really expensive to be healthy.  According to Freakonomics:

The results of a new study by public health researchers at Columbia University and Oxford University forecasts that by 2030, there will be an additional 65 million obese adults living in the U. S., and 11 million more in the U.K. That would bring the U.S. obese population up from 99 million to 164 million, roughly half the population.
