Fixing american fatness would not fix our healthcare system. The only way to do that is to cut out the hedge fund middlemen by switching to medicare for all.

The ads I'm getting on this page are hilarious given the topic. A plate of tamales with the word "HOT" above it, a box of Savannah candy being as appetizing as possible, A layered lasagna "cake" filled with ricotta, and a cheese cake that's 6" high.
