Half of USA to be Fat in 2030

Fat? Don't worry - you're in good company ... or soon will be.

According to the medical journal The Lancet, half of America will be obese in just two decades:

These trends project 65 million more obese adults in the USA and 11 million more obese adults in the UK by 2030, consequently accruing an additional 6-8.5 million cases of diabetes, 5.7-7.3 million cases of heart disease and stroke, 492,000-669,000 additional cases of cancer, and 26-55 million quality-adjusted life years forgone for USA and UK combined.

Before 2030, scientist will invent food that is better tasting that anything we could imagine, inexpensive to produce and has absolutely no nutritional value what-so-ever. Ha. Ha.

85% of the population in the US right now is fat, so I guess by 2030 the trend will be reversing.

BTW, I'm the real Nobody. Not that impostor above.
