I'm not speaking to specific cases, just the general trend in what is going on in the wider culture.

I just dealt with a woman who was about 40 who ended up in heart failure and is on oxygen due to no fault of her own.

And the trend is toward worse health due to personal action and inaction.

Generally, the more intelligent you are, the more you avoid the problems that lead to the reversible diseases of modernity.

I'm still trying to figure out how exactly people get to 400-500 pounds. I see plenty of them.
