Obesity the most common covid comorbidity (General)

I listened to the Joe Rogan podcast with Bill Maher (here's a clip), and at one point I think it was Rogan who pointed out that obesity was the #1 comorbidity of covid. Something like 75% of people who died from covid were overweight or obese.

The media did do a good job at reporting on the comorbidities of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, but they clearly evaded the elephant in the room -- that these conditions are more often than not caused by being FAT. Because we couldn't be politically incorrect, could we, nor would we want to upset the corporate pig trough we call fast food.

So, in fact, the best, most effective advice people should be getting is to lose weight if you're overweight. That's it. Done. But not a word on that. There still isn't.

It takes time to lose weight. They should be pushing that message now, right? Before the next wave hits? But not a peep.

You can find plenty of information on this, but nobody reads that stuff. Especially people who like to sit in front of the TV and eat Taco Bell.
