Fat and Sassy

my views on being larger than life.

quick quote – fattened by pills January 25, 2010

“It is striking that the weight of many Americans has ballooned just as the prescribing of psychiatric drugs has surged. The Obesity Society categorizes nearly two-thirds of adult Americans as overweight, the average weight of an adult having increased since 1960 by 25 pounds, and between 1996 and 2006 alone, prescriptions of psychiatric drugs for US adults increased 73 percent.”  from http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/magazine/articles/2010/01/24/fattened_by_pills/

others have snarked on it much more than i but it bears repeating.   i think that this statistic, this, coupled with the aging of thew baby boomers, can attribute like 98% of the weight gain found in this obesity craze.  the other 2% i leave to food like THIS (http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/product/bacon_exotic_candy_bar/exotic_candy_bars)   and THIS (http://www.recipezaar.com/Deep-Fried-Snickers-70068)  (joking, joking)
