Fair point about America's dietary habits. Obesity is reportedly one of the factors that put people at a higher risk of dying from this virus, so I get it. But I do feel compelled to point out that this virus is contagious. Obesity is not, nor is diabetes, heart disease, or any other ailment that could potentially result from a poor diet, so I don't think it's quite fair to compare wearing a mask with eating healthier. My coworkers aren't putting me at risk by eating burgers and fries at lunch, but they might very well be increasing the likelihood of catching and passing this virus to me or someone else if they all choose not to wear masks. So we'll probably have to agree to disagree on this. But thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I appreciate it.
