Everyone's Fat in Forty Years; or a Gigantic Coffee Enema for Washington, D.C.

Headline: All U.S. adults could be overweight in 40 years "Genetically and physiologically, it should be impossible" for all U.S. adults to become overweight, said Dr. Lan Liang of the federal government's Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality... We have an agency for what?

Where in the Constitution does it authorize the formation of an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality? If it actually functions at all, it's doing a poor job at identifying the lack of quality in health care and its wrong-headed research into pharmaceutical drug-deficiency diseases. Why would most, if not all Americans be fat in forty years? Toxic food, water and air combined with sedentary lifestyles. Will they try to pawn this off on genetics?

"Weight problems will be most acute among African-Americans and Mexican- Americans, the study projects."

Why should differing skin pigmentation result in more consistent weight-gain to obesity? Could it be a cultural or economic divide? If there is a genetic lineage for a diet that is better for you based on your ancestry, you can be sure that those who hail from Africa cannot thrive on refined food from the drive-thru. I'll hazard a guess that even Caucasians emigrating from Africa and naturalized here in America are not meant to eat a diet consisting primarily of processed foods (am I indelicate for pointing out that there are African-Americans that are also Caucasian?). Whatever will the government do to help us turn things around so that we restore our svelte figures?

"The findings highlight a need for widespread efforts to improve Americans' lifestyles..."

Could that be our Moment Of Duh for this week? Of course, when the government says that we need a better lifestyle, they never acknowledge the need for humans (Americans or otherwise) to subsist on ORGANIC foods. There is way too much Dow-santo money lining the pockets of Congress for them to allow HHS to even mention the superior lifestyle that is organic.

So how do we lose weight? "We" don't. Only you can lose weight. Only I can lose weight. Your metabolism does not work collectively, no matter how much Obama loves socialism. Does our government still recognize individual liberty? Apparently not, as evidenced by the following revealing statement from a government-scientist involved in the study concluding that we are all doomed to be fatties:

"It really needs to be more than an individual effort," Liang said. "It needs to be a societal effort."

Hey Liang, society cannot lose weight! Only individuals can. Actually, it is not the weight that needs losing, it's the toxins. The weight will come off quite naturally as your diet improves by cleaning up everything that enters your alimentary canal. This concept is obviously too advanced for those on the Taxpayer payroll. Will everybody be overweight in 40 years? Perhaps if the government still insists that chemically grown and processed foods are fit for human consumption.

If the FDA followed the lead of its founder, Harvey Wiley, we would not have an obesity epidemic in America. Food was meant to have vitamins, minerals and trace minerals in it, not pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, additives, preservatives, flavorings, sweeteners and colorings. I will not even get into genetically modified organisms. If your liver cannot process and detoxify all of those synthetic molecules ingested with "food" -- a rational survival adaptation takes place. You may begin to retain water and fat in order to dilute the toxic burden on the body, particularly the vital organs.

Losing weight without supportive detoxification protocols is irresponsible because it may force those toxins back into circulation, thus interacting with vulnerable cells within the excretory, digestive, endocrine and nervous systems. Actually, all body parts may be impacted by these fat soluble toxins once released but not detoxified. Start your road to recovery with Selenium and GTF Chromium at the very least. Obesity, like so many other chronic conditions, is a disease of toxicity, deficiency and chronic inflammation.

This country needs a gigantic organic coffee enema. Administer with caution. Washington D.C. may be the most congested toxic waste site on planet earth. It's loaded with Republicans, Democrats and lobbyists that feed both fluoride-filled Twinkies for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

All except for one doctor who took the red pill long ago: Dr. Ron Paul.

Your work is insightful as it relates to the health of the American children. Today, 1 in 3 American kids has autism, allergies, asthma or ADHD. I am honored to have been featured in the New York Times and on Good Morning America, as I am working to highlight how easy it is for parents to clean out their kids foods and inspire health in their families. You can learn more at Thank you for your work.

Obviously, the weight issue has become the plague of our time. And addressing this crisis by admonishing us to eat better and exercise more just isn't working; we keep getting fatter. As Dr. Liang says, "It really needs to be more than an individual effort. It needs to be a societal effort."
I read a terrific blog recently that addresses Dr. Liang’s study and really makes you think. The author, Jon Barron (a well known nutraceutical researcher) wrote that It seems a simple solution might be at hand. Scientists have developed a pill that replaces the need for exercise. According to an article in Cell, mice that took the pill lost body fat and increased endurance significantly. In fact, after four weeks of taking the pills, the little rodents could run about 44 percent farther and 23 percent longer than untreated mice. And if they did exercise, the pill helped them to run 68 percent longer and 70 percent farther than exercising mice who were drug-free.” He goes on to say “Looks like we might finally be able to have our cake and eat it too -- while sitting in front of our flat screen TVs...without budging. You know, when you think about it, it does make sense in some perverse kind of way. If we're actually heading towards 100% overweight, then taking pills that change our genetic coding (as long as we don't worry about possible side effects) might be just what the doctor ordered. Hey, and why even worry about side effects -- there certainly will be another pill to handle those in short order. It's incredible. From a world of fatties to a world where everyone -- even the women -- look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. “ You gotta love it.
