We are a fast food nation that parks our butts on the sofa and and vegetate to our favorite sports team or reality TV show. Our diet is not balanced, to rich in meat and starches. We also eat out way to mush consuming overly large portions and to much sodium. Water is replaced with soda. Even kids are getting kidney stones. No one should be surprised at the cost of gluttony.
