African Americans, especially women, rank highest in the nation for obesity, but a new report sheds some light on just how high that number really is.. A staggering four out of five African American women today are deemed obese, with the majority of those ranking in at morbidly obese.
I can officially say that now I have seen it all! The Coca-Cola Company engaging in a campaign against, of all things, obesity! No I did not say diabetes, I said obesity! And now I’m saying, are you kidding me?
I know that it’s the thought that counts, but really? A company known for poisoning people for all these years with high fructose corn sweetener and artificial sweeteners is now campaigning against obesity? What’s next? The morning after Coke?
