The Bipolar Fat Boys

We all know obesity isn't good for you. Obesity has been associated with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, cancer, respiratory insufficiency, arthritis, sleep problems, etc, etc. Yet, we all still go for that extra value meal. Don't forget the extra beef patty, the extra salt, and the twenty ketchup packets.

Damn, that tastes good NOW. Tomorrow is another day. Isn't it live today, die tomorrow? Whatever.

A recent study associated obesity with an increased risk of psychiatric disorders, especially bipolar disorder, depression, and panic disorder. If it ain't one thing it's another.

America is fat and getting fatter. That means we are destined to become a hypertensive, bipolar, diabetic, heavy breathing, atherosclerotic nation. Unless. Unless, we plan ahead. Unless, we make investments in ourselves and others. Unless, we associate our choices of today with our consequences of tomorrow. Unless, we INVEST in our future.

FAT chance.

The study did reveal one glimmer of hope: obese people are less likely to develop a substance abuse problem. I need another Big Mac NOW! Extra special sauce. And fries. And a soda. I said NOW! Don't forget the mayo.

Oh. Can I get another Big Mac?
