Once again, hello everyone and thank you for reading my recent articles about the crash of the US economy is coming sooner than you think; aging, memory and mobility, and other societal issues, previously written about in 2018-2019. Wherefore, these undesirable circumstances have brought me to further care about surviving these very important personal human threats, and health concerns involving US citizens: nuclear accidents, acts of nuclear terrorism, natural gas explosions, infrastructure calamities, global climate changes and the environmental effects of global warming, and aging issues; dementia: memory and mobility, crashing of the US economy, lack of knowledge, saving our souls from an endless death, and the continual onset of Human Obesity. Readers, therefore, please note, in this article I will only discuss the plight of obesity with you. This article could very well save your life.
