12 Percent

Only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy, study finds.

I can believe it. Have you walked outside and looked around? If I were transported from the 1980s, I’d be agog and aghast at all the just enormous people everywhere. It’s gone from fairly uncommon to just normal in less than a human lifetime. It makes me particularly sad when I see kids under 10 or 12 who weigh far more than I do.

And so much for HAES.

They found that less than 1 percent of obese adults are metabolically healthy.

That was always a scam, likely sponsored by food companies — but nice to have a bit of definitive proof to point to.
