Having trouble sticking to your diet?

According to a new study, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and obesity are on the rise in Canadians of all ages. (same goes for you non-Canadians)

It’s so bad that for the first time in 2 centuries, Canadians can expect to die earlier than their parents.

And why, you may ask are Canadians dropping like flys on a bug zapper?

Because they are fat.

The authors of the study found that hypertension and diabetes are increasing most in those who were obese or overweight.

“Projections suggest that the rising prevalence of obesity in the current generation of adolescents will increase the prevalence of coronary heart disease by 5 to 16% in 2035, and may for the first time in 2 centuries significantly reduce life expectancy in the 21st century,” state Dr. Douglas Lee of the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences.

Obesity = Hypertension = Diabetes = Heart Disease = An Early Death

And just in case you still feel like reaching for another handful of nacho chips…

    Love it!! Love it love it. I will not forget this picture. Point made very simply, bluntly (no bullshit) and beautifully! Thank you.
    (Too be fair the black woman in the picture I think, is an extremely fit Martin Lawrence from “Big Momma” – but I get the point.)
