One of the things you missed is redundancy: What happens to all that data when somebody drops a bomb on it? Is it stored somewhere else? And, if so, how current is it and how quickly can it be accessed?
Presumably a lot of labor was involved in building the data center, but long-term jobs? Not so much.
but it is really dick behavior to say that there is no genetic factor here or that causes out of a persons control are not an issue.
if medication is causing obesity I’d suggest stop taking the medication.

You can't expect the US government to ban foods for lack of nutrition. They can regulate which foods are served in the cafeteria at public schools but that is about it. You're not likely to get lawmakers to declare sugar, carbohydrates and alcohol are poisons. In the US at least, people have the right to eat whatever they want, if they can afford it.
I always fly first class and I never see any obese people up there, but I pity the person who has to sit next to an obese person in coach. The airlines should make them buy two seats rather than let their blubber overflow onto another passenger.
cpsro said:There really is no way to gloss over the fact that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is a root cause of nearly half of U.S. healthcare costs. Just as cigarets should cost $25/pack to cover the associated healthcare burden, a Big Mac should cost $25 a pop, too. Slow poison is what McDonald's sells.
As far as cigarette usage is concerned, America is much lower than Eastern Europe and Russia. Nicotine is a difficult addiction to break but at least in the US there are programs that work, so again it is a personal choice. As long as you are talking about unhealthy habits, I would rank alcohol use right up there with the others and the worst countries are again Eastern Europe and Russia.
