Interesting study that I read today.  As we battle obesity issues, it turns out that American animals are getting fatter too, not just domestic ones in that you can say are being overfed like humans, but even wild animals and lab animals.  The average body weight of wild chimps has risen by 35% in the last 10 years.  Lab mice in the most controlled settings imaginable are 11% fatter, and it's not like scientists have started feeding them more.  Marmosets, monkeys, feral rats, dozens of species of birds from country cardinals to city pigeons, all getting fatter.  Of course domestic dogs and cats are having unprecedented obesity issues, but even strays are gaining weight.  You really have to wonder what the fuck is seeping into the soil or the air or whatever that is causing this, because it's definitely more than people just not being able to put down the ice cream.

Did they not have an opinion on why this is occurring? It sounds little odd.

Obviously on an anecdotal note, I've seen Diabetes cases go through the roof over the 23 years I've been here. It used to be I'd get a couple of patients a week I'd have to do blood sugar checks on. Now there are days when 75% of my patients need them. Same with lap cholys. You'd get your gall bladder out in your 40's or 50' back in the day. Now I get patients, especially women in their early 20's getting them done. It doesn't help being in KC, where nobody exercises, and they shove BBQ and Steak into their faces daily.

Prior to the Holocough, the most recent flu pandemic in the United States was the Hong Kong flu of 1968. By most metrics, the Wuhan flu has been more dangerous and deadly, but what's the one striking difference between the average American of 1968 and 2021? What would the Covid numbers look like if we all had the average physique of 1968?

They didn’t really know except to say that there’s so many chemicals in our food and soil these days that it seems almost impossible to eat healthy, even if you’re just eating fruits and vegetables straight from the farm. There could be other things going on. Who knows.
