Obesity the most common covid comorbidity (General)

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.

I don't watch TV but will occasionally flick on for a sporting contest - which is always proudly brought to you by the fat/sugar industry, alcohol, & gambling. Meanwhile, smoking has become the pariah. I understand that smoking is bad for you, but the hypocrisy is breath-taking. A packet of ciggies in Aus costs about $45 (!), & the packaging is covered with gross pictures of diseased lungs. If that makes sense for tobacco, then why isn't a Big Mac exorbitantly expensive & plastered with a picture of some obese person dying of Covid?
