National Security Threat: Too Fat to Fight?

Overweight ... At Attention

Overweight ... At Attention

The obesity epidemic in America continues to skyrocket among adults and children. According to statistics, nearly 36 percent of Americans are overweight and 31 percent are considered obese. By the year 2018 nearly half of all adults will be considered obese if the current rate continues. These are huge numbers that surpass anything ever seen in the history of the human race.

Other statistics, like the cost of obesity, are also staggering. The medical cost of obesity is over 147 billion a year. That is nearly 10% of all health care spending. The obese have many medical issues that a person with normal weight does not have. They suffer with heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, hypertension, and hypothyroid, just to name a few. These costs add up to over $1,500.00 per year for each overweight person in America. The staggering costs of obesity are overwhelming the health care system and may eventually break it.

There are other issues to America that we do not usually considered when looking at obesity. One of these issues is national security. Are we too fat to fight? According to a recent study conducted by the Department of Defense nearly one quarter of our military aged youth do not meet the minimum physical requirements to join. “This is creating a potential threat to national security,” said a group of retired armed forces leaders.

“It’s not drug abuse, it’s not asthma, it’s not flat feet – by far the leading medical reason is being overweight or obese,” said retired U. S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Norman Seip at a news conference. Why the recent increase in obesity among our youth?

Some say that it is the lack of physical activity. We have cut out recess and required physical education at school that causes our young people to be very sedentary. Some say that it is the lack of proper nutrition by the school lunch program that is causing our children to become obese.

Both of those are definitely contributing factors, however, there is an approach that is overlooked today. In the 1940′s and 1950′s Dr. A.T.W. Simeons studied obesity as a disease. He concluded that the hypothalamus, a gland in our brain, can become damaged and cause us to become obese. The hypothalamus controls many processes in the body including fat storage, hunger, and heart rate. It can be damaged by extreme stress and chemicals in our food and water.

Dr. Simeons used hCG, a developmental hormone, to heal the hypothalamus. The healed hypothalamus causes the body to function normally burning the fat that is stored. His research and treatment has been used in Europe to safely and successfully reduce weight for the past fifty-six years but in America it has been overlooked. With the obesity epidemic ever increasing in America today, can we afford to overlook his research any longer? To read Dr. A. T. W. Simeons work got to

Debate: Banning Smoking in Vehicles

Stop Smoking in Vehicles

No Smoking in Vehicles

Six countries, five states, and many local jurisdictions have banned smoking in cars when children are present to protect them from the clearly established dangers of tobacco smoking pollution, and an estimated sixteen states are now debating similar restrictions, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, Executive Director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), America’s first antismoking organization, who just finished a heated debate on this topic on Fox News. …

In preparation for the debate he posted on his website [] a brief video showing just how dangerous tobacco smoke in the car can be. It shows that, within a few seconds of lighting only one cigarette, the level of particulate pollution goes from the EPA’s SAFE level to a level the agency regards as HAZARDOUS. Indeed, in a few more seconds, the level of pollution is at least ten times higher than the level the EPA considers HAZARDOUS to all, not just to the elderly, children, or those who might have conditions making them especially susceptible.

His website also shows that the federal government has reported that secondhand tobacco smoke kills tens of thousands of Americans each year, that a leading medical journal has reported that parental smoking kills thousands of children annually, and that many studies – including the dramatic video – have shown that the pollution level from smoking in a car is UNHEALTHY even with all the windows rolled down. Rolling all the windows down, however, isn’t healthy for the children inside when its very cold, very hot, or raining, notes Banzhaf, and it is not reasonable to expect drivers to roll all the windows down in these conditions. In sharp contrast, asking them to refrain from smoking during the very brief period of most drives with children seems very reasonable.

Banzhaf noted that laws already require parents to protect their children by buckling them into expensive safety seats, locating them only on the rear seat, refraining from watching TV or having an open bottle of liquor in the car, and other requirements far more bothersome that simply not smoking. He also notes that we have accepted laws which require adults to buckle up – a requirement which is even more intrusive, especially since it aimed at protecting adults from their own carelessness rather than protecting children.

We ban smoking in bars so that adults will not be exposed even to a whiff of smoke, but we provide no protection whatsoever for millions of children who are daily strapped into rolling smokehouses, argues Banzhaf. That’s exactly backwards because children are for more vulnerable to tobacco smoke pollution and, unlike adults who can avoid bars or leave if they are bothered by the smoke, children have no choice but to suffer, and no one will heed their cries.

Banzhaf’s organization has helped many nonsmoking parents obtain court order against smoking around their children, and more recently helped persuade more than a dozen states to ban smoking in cars when foster children are present. This helped lead to the breakthrough where more and more states are likely to ban smoking to protect children in cars.
