The new data on obesity was published by ZeroHedge a couple of days ago. It's becoming a real problem in a lot of countries, not just the USA, of course. A fairly recent study which they link to claims that:
Adults with extreme obesity have increased risks of dying at a young age
from cancer and many other causes including heart disease, stroke,
diabetes, and kidney and liver diseases...
and even that extreme obesity is more dangerous than smoking:
...the researchers found that the number of years of life lost for class
III obesity was equal or higher than that of current (versus never)
cigarette smokers among normal-weight participants in the same study...
Being overweight and/or obese is often presented (in some corners of the internet) as a purely female issue, which is very far from the truth. For instance, in my country, approximately the same percent of males and females (50+%) is overweight. Men will often complain about their wives or girl-friends putting on weight and becoming unattractive, but the reverse is true, too. Overweight or obese men aren't attractive to women, either!
In fact, men suffering from obesity will also suffer from increased estrogen which in turn will decrease their testosterone, not only making them less masculine in the process, but also leading to all sorts of nasty diseases. (Another thing which surprisingly increases estrogen in men is self-pleasuring. These Catholic Church fathers were right, after all!)
In short, we all of us should try to eat well and to be as physically fit as possible, not only with the objective of staying attractive for our marriage partner, but for your own health as well.
