Millennials are on a crash course with the grim reaper. This generation is apparently the smartest generation to ever roam planet earth, however, they can hardly manage their health. Something is amiss here... It turns out, millennials are set to become the fattest generation on record – with three-quarters projected to be obese by the time they reach forty, new research shows.
Despite all the modern technological advances and fancy health-trends circulating social media channels, the majority of millennials are overweight. Perhaps, overindulgence of the Western culture should be blamed... After all, Venezuelans lost an average of 19lbs in weight, as their fiat system crashed and burns. Maybe the Western millennial will have a day of reckoning when their fiat currency tumbles and inflation rears its ugly head, until then, the peak overweight millennial is still ahead.
New research from the Cancer Research UK states more than seven in ten millennials (born 1980s-1990s) are projected to become overweight between the ages of 35-44. Even the baby boomers (born 1945-55), which are criticized for stripping the economy of productivity managed to be around five in ten at the same age.
“Being overweight is the UK’s biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking, but most people don’t know about this substantial risk. If more people become aware of the link it may help spare not just millennials, but all generations from cancer,” said Alison Cox, Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK warns being overweight as an adult can contribute to at least thirteen different types of cancers including “breast, bowel and kidney cancer, but only 15% of people in the UK are aware of the link.”
“The government must play a part to help people make healthy food choices. We’re campaigning for a ban on junk food adverts before the 9pm watershed to protect young people from advertising tactics which all too often promote fattening foods,” Cox added.
Professor Linda Bauld, Cancer Research UK’s fat expert, said: “Research shows that our evolving environment has a vital role to play in the obesity crisis. Clever marketing tactics by the food industry and greater access to unhealthy food are all likely to have contributed to the rise in obesity rates.”
“Extra body fat doesn’t just sit there; it sends messages around the body that can cause damage to cells. This damage can build up over time and increase the risk of cancer in the same way that damage from smoking causes cancer,” she cautioned.
“While these estimates sound bleak, we can stop them becoming a reality. Millennials are known for following seemingly healthy food trends, but nothing beats a balanced diet. Eating plenty of fruit, vegetables and other fibre filled foods like wholegrains, and cutting down on junk food is the best way to keep a healthy weight. ”
Cancer Research UK is now warning its citizens that the fat millennial generation is jeopardizing the country’s survivability.
Our advice to millennials: Put down the avocado toast and realize your generation is not just fat and broke, but you are jeopardizing the national security of your nation. As we highlighted above, the Venezuela diet is coming to Western countries once the fiat system crumbles. Until then, peak fat millennial is still ahead of us.
