Global Report: Obesity Bigger Health Crisis than Hunger

Humans are doomed for extinction. One half will die from hunger while the other half will die from overeating. So which is a better way to die?

An international conference is scheduled where the hungry and obese will work to find the solution to this rift in humans.

Eat hay!
Eat hay!

 

Can we talk?
Can we talk?

(CNN)— “Obesity is a bigger health crisis globally than hunger, and the leading cause of disabilities around the world, according to a new report published Thursday in the British medical journal The Lancet.” http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/13/health/global-burden-report

Humans are doomed for extinction.  One half will die from hunger while the other half will die from overeating.  So which is a better way to die? A global forum is scheduled at which representatives of the starving half will join those from the  obese half in an attempt to find a reasonable solution to this civilization threatening problem.  Note:  an alien civilization asked to participate as well.  The reason:  they have been trying to understand human behavior and failed.  So they are desperately trying to determine just what is wrong with the human brain.

It is unfortunate that we horses were not invited.  Since horses don’t have this problem, we might suggest that both camps eat hay.  Why not?  The hungry are doing it already and if they satiate their unending hunger by drinking copious amounts of water while enjoying hay, the fat might lose some weight.

If this problem is not solved soon, might the hungry start to eat the fat?  We horses will just try to stay out of the way and observe.
