Humans look just like livestock now. We achieve a state of buttery plumpness before we’ve even reached sexual maturity. We experience powerful cravings for food that is slowly making us sick. We are...programmed to eat the wrong food. We aren’t born calorie zombies, but that’s what we have become.
People who don’t know how to keep themselves healthy ought to have the decency to get themselves buried, and not waste time about it.
Let’s face it, in America today we don’t have a health care system, we have a sick care system. We wait until people become obese, develop chronic diseases, or become disabled—and then we spend untold hundreds of billions annually to try to make them better.

If you ruin your body, where will you live?
According to the surgeon general, obesity today is officially an epidemic; it is arguably the most pressing public health problem we face, costing the health care system an estimated $90 billion a year. Three of every five Americans are overweight; one of every five is obese. The disease formerly known as adult-onset diabetes has had to be renamed Type II diabetes since it now occurs so frequently in children. A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association predicts that a child born in 2000 has a one-in-three chance of developing diabetes. (An African American child’s chances are two in five.) Because of diabetes and all the other health problems that accompany obesity, today’s children may turn out to be the first generation of Americans whose life expectancy will actually be shorter than that of their parents. The problem is not limited to America: The United Nations reported that in 2000 the number of people suffering from over-nutrition—a billion—had officially surpassed the number suffering from malnutrition—800 million.

Obesity is a mental state, a disease brought on by boredom and disappointment; greed, like the love of comfort, is a kind of fear. The one way to get thin is to

A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me and she said ‘no’.
Your body is the baggage you must carry through life. The more excess baggage, the shorter the trip.
--Arnold H. Glasow
Every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.
When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless and reason is powerless.
