Time to make our own soda. Then I can carry around a huge cup with Bloom's face on it.

That's true about Texas: I have never seen more morbidly obese and fat people anywhere in the world. They will definetely fight.

In that case, texans should pay 20% fed tax to be fair for their disability-prone population.
Anyone with me on this?

No one gives a damn how much soda you consume.

What we don't care for is paying for your diabetes medicine.


That's the choice folks. With society wide insurance, you're going to have your lifestyle behavior dictated to you by the folks in risk management. Take that prediction to the bank.

If you want to do as you please, then you must do it without offloading the costs on the rest of us.

Jesus. Nobody is banning soda. You can still buy and drink five cups. What's your problem?

If the city did not step in the residents of NYC would get even un healthier . They are looking out for your best. I say more restrictions on Candy bars, Ice cream and no more large size orders at any fast food place.

Diabetes is largely genetic and not caused by obesity. Skinny people have type 2 as well. Ignorant ****.

Thats right. Red states tend to be unhealthier, and Texas has definitely more fatties than NY.
Blame that on the car culture, fast foods, high fructose corn syrup and all the processed foods those people love to consume.

In general the South has the highest prevalence of obese people in the US.
