This is a serious problem, you guys.
The obesity in America is really getting out of control.
The United States has the highest rate of obesity in the entire world. Right now, 35.7% of American adults are obese, as are 17% of our children!
So it's not all that surprising that we're requiring larger and larger coffins!
A standard coffin measures 24 to 27 inches wide but apparently manufacturers are being asked for much wider coffins.
We're talking like 52 inches, which could hold a 1,000 pound person!
A larger coffin can cost an extra $3,000 to $4,000 due to the extra materials needed.
But it's not about the money, it's about increasing quality of life while we're still living!
Losing weight not only helps with many health problems, you'll simply look and feel better!
Let's make a change in 2013!
