Its because of americas corrupt FDA they allow things that are unhealthy and killing us because they get paid to. BMO is illegal in dozens if not hundreds of countries as a poison which causes all kinds of things including auto immune disease. Even fastfood chains from america that operate in other countries has to change their menu and ingredients (beyond that of just cultural adaptions) because they know the **** in them are bad for you. i hate to sound cliche but wake up america you're being poisoned and made to diet related illnesses not because people mean to hurt you but because the highest bidder was able to use whatever ******* cheap ingredients he wanted when they bought off the FDA. Same thing goes for experimental medications and the pharmaceutical industry .

BMO? Bank of Montreal? I assume you mean GMO. Genetic modification is not unhealthy, it alters proteins which are digested into amino acids in your body. So they are harmless. Taking a protein from a fish which makes it survive cold temperatures and putting it in a plant isn't making the plant unhealthy. The fish is healthy, the plant is healthy, eating the plant with a fish protein does not magically make it bad. The worst thing you can get from a GMO is an allergy if you are allergic to the introduced protein.

Even the ecological fear that some GMO might contaminate the natural gene pool and out compete natural populations can be mitigated by making the GMO sterile. They do that with genetically modified salmon in salmon farms. If they get into the wild, they can't produce offspring so who cares?

GMO plants that are resistance to pesticide are the problem. Just look up the honey bee population in the US and you'll see how bad it is.

I beleive you mean resistant to herbicides since pesticides kill insects. There are GMO plants with pesticide genes in them which produce proteins that kill insects but those are good because you don't have to use chemical pesticides anymore and the protein pesticide in the plant is just digested by your body into its amino acid building blocks.
As for herbicide resistance, its not a perfect system since it still requires the use of herbicides and the solution isn't in the inserted gene but its the lesser of two evils. weeds compete with crops and we need to control them. Either we use a selective herbicide which targets only the weed and not the crop, or we use a general herbicide which kills all plants. You'd pick the first one right? Well the problem is the selective herbicides are a lot more toxic than the general herbicides, both to your body and the environment. So the solution is to put the selective aspect into the plant. by modifying the plant and giving it resistance to the general herbicide, you are using the less toxic option and not killing your own crops.

Yes, but that those chemicals don't break down in your body without any negative effects long term. Also, you're correct, GMO plants with pesticide genes is killing off insects and animals that feed on those insects. The black bird has dropped 64% since 2008 and is close to endanger but more importantly the honey bees are dying out.

Still, GMO's have their own problems.

For starters, we don't know what long term effects these can have on our bodies because they've only been around for a couple decades. We also run the risk of people suffering complications and even possibly dying from these allergies you mentioned or any other unforeseen longterm effects, and nobody may ever even know it was because of the genetically modified food proteins because they're in so much of our food, and none of it has to be labeled. Also, genetic modifications can be patented, which adds a whole new set of problems.

I'm not an idiot blindly claiming GMOs directly cause cancer though there is a chance that may eventually be found to be the case, I wouldn't really bet on it until something proves otherwise and they do have plenty of benefits, but there are reasons to be weary of them.

Sure we don't have long term information but just knowing basic biology can tell you that there is nothing dangerous about taking a protein from one organism and putting it in another since we digest the proteins. As for allergies, that is a mild adverse effect, take some antihistamine or an epipen and you'll be fine. Its no more of a concern than peanut butter, we won't ban it because some people are allergic, some people are allergic to a lot of things. The only problem I have with labeling is it might make people think that the food is bad just because they don't understand it. Then again, in Europe they have labels and the GMO tomato paste sells better than the regular tomato paste since it costs less and comes in a larger size. People didn't care.

I believe it should be labeled. Hypochondriasis aside, it would at least be beneficial to those who may find that eating a GMO causes food allergies while eating the organic kind does not. I know a guy who has a lot of digestive system issues (that cause food allergies) which his doctors inform him aren't immediately super threatening to his health, but over the long run in his life would increase the risk of some serious health complications. I know he's an exception, but there are people who this should concern.

Also, while many GMOs are generally well studied before they make it to the market, there are some that make it into public food consumption that aren't supposed to. Look at StarLink corn for instance; it was determined to possibly cause serious food allergies and thus was only produced for animal feed and non-public uses, yet it still ended up in the public's food because of neglect, which caused a big recall. Fortunately someone actually looked into that one, but for all we know there could be genetically modified food that can cause serious problems down the line that is lying under the surface.

Sure it's just changing a few genes, but remember what just a few genes in an organism can do.

It is pros and cons, and the pros definitely appear to make it sound like a better idea on the surface than pesticides and herbicides, but it doesn't make it automatically safe either.

I also believe that it should be brought up more in schools. Nutrition in general is way too important of a topic where Diabetes rates are climbing to be a subject that only gets taught as an optional college course.

it truly comes down to laziness i feel. the US relies heavily on transportation other than by foot to reach destinations. my friends who have visited places like italy say they walked just about everywhere and still ate crazy amounts of pasta and wine and they actually lost weight upon returning. the increase in activity levels surely must play a massive role in it

i have a somewhat un-thought trough theory about this. don`t Americans drink more bear and such wile eating fatty foods, wile the other countries drink alcohol outside of meals?

cus fat cant be broken down in the liver wile alcohol is in the blood.

any Mexicans out there that can come with some insight into drinking habits down there?
any alcohol next to fatty meals on a regular basis?

If you're Scandinavian (which is an easy assumption to make) you might be aware that the Danes drink A LOT of alcohol to all occassions, though mostly casually, so I doubt that's what makes America so fat

hm, true true..

<--they are quite slim over there in Denmark.
well, that debunked my theory.

still kinda curious about why they are so darn fat in america compared to the rest of the world.

they have the same calorie intake as Denmark You need to login to view this link

and the Americans dont seem to eat that much more fat You need to login to view this link


the Americans even play more sports..

Well, one thing might be that Scandinavia (especially Norway) has ridiculously expensive unhealthy foods/drinks compared to other countries. Same goes of course for cigarettes and basically whatever unhealthy **** they have in the stores: if it's unhealthy, it's gonna cost you. I think that plays a huge role, since a broke college student in the US of A will survive off Taco Bell, McDick etc. while a broke college student in Scandinavia will live off First Price pasta, apples and carrots.    
   
Second, the media and advertisement. In the States, there is a humongous amount of ads for the big fast food chains, and just food in general. Here, we have a few ads for food and convenience stores, but not really for fast food. So obviously, we won't have the same subconscious urge to go and buy some burgers.   
But I don't know if those are the main reasons, it's just what came to mind.

Mind you "Americans" is indicative of anything when it comes to genetic. With that in mind, Germany actually has fewer heart attacks per 100,000 people by a margin of 0.4 people. Which means that it takes approximate 250,000 people in order for the differences round out to actually affect another person.

13. United States -106.5 per 100,000 people
14. Germany - 106.1 per 100,000 people

www.nationmaster.com/country-info/stats/Health/Heart-disease-deaths
Just be aware that the date on these statistics date back to 1998. Furthermore a good fraction of the U.S. is composed of Germanic individuals, which genetically speaking Germans are more likely to suffer from heart attacks than other nations. Likewise Mexicans and Italian people are as well, albeit to a lesser degree if I recall correctly.

Most Mexican food is heavy, and vegetable platters are relegated to either flavoring or side-side dishes. By all rights, such a diet ought to be worse than American food, but apparently it isn't.

We don't deep fry food as often as Caucasian Americans, our foods tend to have natural flavorings so we don't salt as often either, as opposed to American and Anglo cooking which for some reason salts the **** out of everything. Burgers, Gravy, Eggs, Sausage, Gravy, Potatoes.... personally I always attributed Anglo oversalting as compensations for their inability to cook but whatever.

Mexicans do not have dinner, or have a very small one.

Alcohol, going to say this right now as a drinking tradition it is usually done on the weekends during parties with the buddies where the men get really drunk on pisswater . Can be done during hot days at work too, but this is rare since you can get in trouble at work, and DUI. :/ Thing is alcohol is seen as a destructive force and not a food compliment, dudes here get drunk and **** up their livers how much they drink.

It's definitely something in the US that's messing up the health though, Mexicans that live in the States have skyrocketing rates of Diabetes, and obesity that surpasses even Caucasian people, they just can't eat that food or they will die. This effect leaked into the border towns where American food products get in and the rate is pushing the national average past the US.

Sorry bud, but mexico is nearly as bad as the U.S., in fact right behind us., and that is with it's significantly lower standard of living. It has become a global problem now, and should be one of the most pressing issues.

Mexico has actually surpassed the US according to what I've been reading.... I think I acknowledged this in my earlier comment. I personally blame the US food, I know that's not something Americans like to hear. (It's not like anybody's forcing them to eat it). But it's pretty well known in Mexican communities that Mexicans who eat the same things an American does... well end up worse in both obesity and diabetes.

**** I'm willing to change my mind if I'm wrong. I'm actually curious myself on what seperates us from the French and the Japanese.

You mentioned mexican americans, sorry for the mistake, and mexico has only passed in overweight numbers. I agree, it is the fact we do less manual work/ exercise, while still eating food high in starches (maize/potatoes), more sugar (no **** lol), and lots of processed carbs (white bread/ bleached corn). It is in both of the nation's cuisines, and is a leftover from our hardworking agrarian past. This is what is causing the obesity crisis. Honestly we need to tax the hell out of processed foods, and subsidize whole food, this will lead to a significant dent in these rates.
