We Just Might Survive Being Subjugated By China After All.

Some people might call me a waffle-er… And I still feel that we are at very high risk of falling under the thumb of certain nations because we’ve traded away our industrial capacity… But this sure deserves a look see.

I’m watching PBS about fast food taking over the world and the resultant explosion in heart disease and other illnesses related to eating the supersized overfatted deepfried glop that we’ve been eating for years.

We Americans are used to eating this crap… We’re fat bastards and proud of it… But… Studies have shown that the Chinese and other Asian nations are suffering already from eating stuff that we Americans consider staple foods.

In other words… They’re as vulnerable to the saturated fats and carbohydrates as badly as the Indians of the Americas were to the European diseases the English and Spanish brought over with them!

They can’ t handle trans fats and high carbs from a genetic standpoint!.. And they haven’t even reached anywhere near the saturation point for McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Huts… Mickey D’s is opening a store a day in mainland China…. God help them… They don’t stand a chance.

I guess Rampant Capitalism will wind up killing us all in one way or another… Can you imagine half a billion people with diabetes, clogged arteries, sky high cholesterol and blood pressure all jonesing for a #5 supersized?.. This could happen within 20 years… I wonder if there’ll be a detectable earthquake when 250 million fat Chinese all fall over with massive coronaries?

Here’s an excerpt from another article:

Across the Far East, growing urbanization, rapid industrialization and increasing obesity associated with decreased physical activity is fueling an epidemic that has killed as many as Aids but has received a fraction of the attention.

The disease is diabetes, and its incidence is accelerating around the world. From 170 million affected in 2000, doctors predict the total will rise to 370 million by 2025, leading to an epidemic of amputations and blindness, the two commonest effects of the condition. Developing nations will be hardest hit; they bear 90 per cent of the burden but have only 10 per cent of the resources to deal with it.

Doctors do not know why Asians are more prone to the disease. One theory is that because of their slighter build, compared with Westerners, they have less muscle bulk and more fat, so do not need to gain much weight to put themselves at risk. Malnourishment in infancy or in the womb, which is known to increase the risk of diabetes, may also play a part. Seven out of 10 of the worst affected nations by the disease are in Asia. India already has a total of 31 million cases, the highest in the world, closely followed by China with 20 million. The Far East is expected to see the fastest growth by 2025, with a near doubling in the current total of 81 million cases to 156 million. (READ MORE)

Maybe if the Chinese threaten to withhold our cheap goods… Our corporate Masters will threaten to withhold the supply of high fructose corn syrup.
