Practically the whole world has gotten obese since 1975 by a factor of 300-400%, and COVID would have been far less of a problem in 1975. Why does God ordain for COVID-19 to come now, when 75-80% of the serious cases are weight issues? Eliminating this factor, COVID death rates are about the same as the flu for the 65+ crowd, and COVID is far less lethal for the under 40-crowd. The Stage 2 Obese group is hospitalized at a rate of 42 per 10,000, the Stage 1 Obese group at 23 per 10,000, the Overweight group at 18 per 10,000, and the normal weighted group at only 13 per 10,000. That's a sample size of 340,000 taken in the UK. We discuss the problem and sins attendant to obesity on this edition of the program.
