The concern over obesity only seems to have expanded (no pun intended) along with people's standards of body image as conveyed by the media. Maybe that's a bit of an extreme generalization. For example, there is a man that lives around this town, and every day, he goes to Burger King, orders two Triple-Meat Whopper Value Meals and eats them BOTH. He is so overweight that he has broken several benches in the park....no kidding. He may be a depressive, he may just have low standards, or he may just like fast food a lot. But I digress. People's concern for obesity has become more extreme as many multinational corporations advertise skinny, beautiful models with perfect bodies and sultry, seductive looks. The public has come to believe that this sort of glamorous plasticity is the norm, and we believe that everyone should live up to our pre-set standards.

But, that's the American way, isn't it?

Bah. All the sensationalist media is overhyping this issue to an extreme. This is a problem that has plagued our country for decades, we were just too naive and sympathetical to say anything about it.
Fast-food companies pimp their "Quadruple Meat and Cheese Preservative-laden Cholesterol Burgers" while people zip around in their busy lives, only stopping at the drive-thru to buy and eat this pure, unadulterated shit. The companies cater to those with no time on their hands (i.e. the carpool mom with a carload of kiddies, the rushed businessman on his way to a board meeting, or even the newspaper delivery people who have to have a bite before taking their route.) and as a result, reap more benefits. This stuff is prepared quickly (sanitation not a guarantee) and peddled to those who are aching for a bite of savory goodness from the restaurants that they grew up with.
