Have you ever heard of being too fat too fight?
well check this out; recruits who were rejected
for being over weight has jumped from 12 percent in 1995
to 21 percent in 2008. So who do you think is to blame?
of course poor nutrition, but during World War II almost
40 percent of recruiters were undernourished.
So the Military Leaders helped congress to pass the National
School Lunch Program. Which helps pack nutrition in daily school
meals. Military Leaders thought that this would be the answer to their
problems, what they didn't know is that it would back fire.
Students were now getting to much nutrition. So with that being
said what is left to do. The way I see it is it's not the recruits fault
they're over eating. I blame it on poor nutrition and what advertisements
show on television. It's like they're forcing us to eat more and more
processed food which isn't right. While slapping a healthy label on things
when in reality most of the food is high in sugar and fats. If things
like Msg and High Fructose Corn Syrup weren't in our food we wouldn't
have these problems to worry about. Eating right and being healthy
should be advertised on television not processed food.
