    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Overweight news

    Commenting only on the msnbc article -- IMO, the fact that we've built our cities so that we must now drive everywhere is very legitimate point as too why we've gotten so fat.

    While this site has some flaws, it is kind of fun to see how your neighborhood rates as far as walkablity. Try it. I live in NW Des Moines and scored a 62 which isn't bad, but isn't great either.

    I must respectfully disagree. Living in Houston myself and most everyone I know drive everywhere just like you have said. And yes, fair enough many if not most are over weight. Yet I've seen their eating habits. And after that they do nothing physical at all. It make me want to puke.
    I'm actually one of the few Americans now a days that is actually underweight. Probably has something to do with the fact that I only eat twice a day. And work out every single day for about 2 hours.

    America is just lazy and wants to eat all the time - as simple as it gets.

    Re: Overweight news

    Dont' get me wrong, our eating habits are to blame too. I'm just saying we have overlooked the fact that the way we began building our cities after WWII has lead to an environment where we are far to car centric.

    Kids can't walk or ride bikes to school or the park any longer. No one can walk to the corner store to pick up a few things. Who walks to church any longer? Also, mass transit still requires some walking (normally), but hardly any of us are using that either since in most instances it is lousy.

    The majority of America agrees with you.

    Re: Overweight news

    86% of American adults will be in the fat category in a few years per the latest news article on obesity.

    Really.

    That is saying a lot. Is this what happened to the Romans?
