I gave a talk a couple of years ago on obesity (see below).  One of the points I made was that we talk about this topic among friends and family members.  At least, African Americans don’t talk about it; and this is ironic since a high number of African Americans are either overweight or obese.  Maybe other races are different when it comes to discussing one’s weight?  Nonetheless, obesity is killing some (literally) and killing others financially.  Consider for example airplanes.  Because of the growing number of obese persons, airplanes are now equipped with larger seats.  Who pays for this extra?  Look in the mirror: you and me!
