U.S. Stops Lowering BMI Range for Obesity, Rates Plateau

Shocking, isn't it? For quite some time now, we've been freaked out about the "rising obesity rates" in America. It turns out that as long as you keep setting the BMI cutoff for obesity lower and lower, the obesity rates continue to climb. But when you stop it already with the continual adjustments, the obesity rate remains the same. And then everyone celebrates. It's as if you said "hey everyone! I stopped manufacturing drama, and the constant uproar and infighting among my family and friends has subsided. It's so peaceful now! Yay for me!!!" Yeah, yay for you. Give yourself a pat on the back.
