Culture Wars or Health

Post by hauslern »

While the GOP are obsesses about the culture wars seem less concerned about their health? The southern states have high obesity and diabetes. I wonder why?

Better eat less and exercise more.

You might want to reconsider throwing that particular rock. Some of that is diet, which is tied to both history and culture. And you might want to check out the incidence of obesity and diabetes by race before blaming culture warriors.

in my opinion, the last time we politicized a health issue, it didn't help people's health at all. Maybe we should address health problems as health problems and leave politics out of it.

Please type a punctuation mark at the end of EVERY sentence. In your case, a question mark at the end of the words "I wonder why[?]" and a period at the end of the words "Better eat less and exercise more[.]"

If you're going to do something, you may as well do it correctly.

Have a look at these folks attending the Southern Baptists convention. Some could rest their plates on their stomach.
