Americans Are Addicted to Oil and ….

The most recent issue of Time magazine revealed some startling statistics. Americans turn out to be addicted to more than just oil.

The average nicotine yield of cigarettes increased 10% from 1998 to 2004.

Two thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. Obesity rates rose in 31 states in the last year.

The number of hours of television watched per day in the American household reached 8.2 hours, up more than a full hour from 1995.

Does this make you proud? Or does this make us fat receivers of junk?
