Obese humans now outnumber the underweight: Study
« on: April 01, 2016, 12:09:28 pm »
http://yourhealth.asiaone.com/content/obese-humans-now-outnumber-underweight-study

the new norm is obesity ..... skinny people are now outside of norm.

once obese people reach 60 - 70% of global population,  gyms will close down and skinny people wouldn't be able to find clothes off the rack any more ....

I'm buying more Mac'D stocks ....

I think hor.. ez-link cards should be tagged to a person's BMI.  Then on top of the distance-based fares, the BMI can be used as a multiplier so that heavier people pay higher fares for public transport on trains and buses.  8)
