who's to blame for obesity?

This restaurant in Phoenix, Az called the heart attack grill. Are they to. E commended at least for being honest? Unlike national chains like McDonalds using names like big Mac this place calls their burgers Double, triple and quadruple by pass. They have morbidly obese spokesman because that is what they are selling so if you want it, they will sell it.

It just bugs me that people in today's society will abuse themselves like this and still expectthe health care system to save them.but then again should the government do more to educate the masses of the dangers in fatty foods? We now have a cigarette tax that i n large part helps reduce people from smoking too much, the same could be done to discourage people from eating fatty foods yet look at the grocery flyers and 95% of the stuff on sale are bad for you.

Watch the video and then comment.

It's kind of hard to legislate health, narcotics are banned, yet plenty of people still use them. A fat tax or a "ban" on excessive eating won't work.

Education, health promotion, and starting to have serious discussions about obesity without overworrying about offending people is a good start.

Me. I'm the one responsible.

I don't think people in a place like the US are really expecting to fall back on the health system. I think it's just a lack of personal responsibility coupled with the "if it was that bad for you it wouldn't be so accepted/somebody would have sued them by now" mentality and unending corporate marketing. People should know the consequences of what they're doing, they should feed themselves more of their own cooking, and they should exercise more, but they don't.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

It doesn't matter. The real person to blame for obesity is the obese person for their poor lifestyle choice.

People themselves are to blame. They choose what to eat.

Some peeps are fat because of their body type and it won't matter what or how much they eat. It is just like how every man can lift weights but not all of them will develop muscles like Arnold Schwartzineager.

LOL, he looks like a guy who purposely stopped working out and tried to put on weight to create a before picture.
