One of my favorite conspiracy theories is that the United States government and multinational corporations (the oligarchy) are intentionally making people ill through the introduction of chemicals into our bodies.. These chemicals are introduced by products such as cigarettes, prescription medications and even the [processed] food we eat..
What would be the purpose of such evil?
To feed money/wealth/power to politicians (we will protect you and save you from evil through control and regulation), drug companies/big pharma who are allowed to 'experiment' with new drugs on humans as never before in our history, to the multinational corporations who control our food supply to a health care system/health care insurance system that, in my opinion, is the largest financial bubble in the history of mankind..
Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, and type 2 diabetes.
*My* suggestion is.. don't borrow their money, don't take their drugs and don't eat their food..
