Do the Dutch drink soda pop?
 Quoting: SevenThunders

By fas not as much as the U.S.

The Dutch drink a lot of drinkyoghurt and skimmed milkproducts. Especially the stuff with extra probiotics.

Moderate coffee and tea, and a lot of unsweetened (fresh) fruitjuices.

 Quoting: Dutch Dude 913721


No seriously, I was impressed by Europeans, there is an amazing public awareness of these matters. While I was in Belgium there was a farm that planted Monsanto GMO potatoes,it was some new Monsanto program that was supposed to start, one of the University profs went and tore them out of the ground with her biology class. She got in trouble for it but the public response in her defense was impressive. Also even the older people there know the internet and use youtube and watch documentaries to stay informed on that kind of stuff. People are aware and even though there's the EU regulations and overlords and whatnot the nations refuse to be homogenized by it.

MR Neanderthal let me enlightened you is not we see bikes as a kids thing but that most cities in the U.S. are not very bike friendly due to the size of the streets, highways and how sprawled they are. In places like San Francisco, Seattle and Oregon people do embrace it and not only that we ride bikes up 25% incline streets compared to your Neanderthal old people cruiser bikes.

Re: The main reason why The Netherlands has 5 times less obese people than the U.S.
Americans are, in my opinion, much more likely to eat to gain a sense of satisfaction rather than as a way of sustaining life and properly fueling their bodies. Even the way things are advertised, such as "loving it," "having it your way," and some of my favorites like "escaping" or "having a rendezvous" with a chocolate bar. It's fucking sick.
Why not escape into the outdoors? Or have a rendezvous with an actual human lover? Most of the people that allow themselves to be sucked into the MSM and advertisers don't understand that they are being programmed to equate food with happiness. Which unfortunately with happiness at a seeming short supply means we start putting it in our mouths for lack of a better idea.

True only about a third of the U.S. hold passports. That is still over 100,000,000 of us running around the world. The thing a lot of people who have never visited The U.S. or Canada don't really understand is how big it truly is here. Sometimes the distance it takes for us to get to the next state you guys would have crossed a country or two or more. Let me just tell you sometimes going from one state to the next you may feel you are in a totally different country.

Up until a few years ago we could all travel between Mexico and Canada without a passport. Now that has changed more and more people are getting one. If we go by ship to somewhere like Jamaica or the Bahamas we still don't need a passport. So, it is unfair to say Americans don't travel. We travel a lot on our own continent just as you guys do.

Anyway, there are many things I love about Europe and I think the U.S. needs to pay attention to our "elders". Obviously there are some things we are doing wrong. I have to agree with the poster about the food. There is a difference in taste and quality from our vegetables to yours. I never realized until the first time I left north america. It really is scary over here that even our "healthy" food is more than likely killing us. My sister is moving to Florence in October and I can't wait to have a free place to stay when I visit :)

Re: The main reason why The Netherlands has 5 times less obese people than the U.S.
Not only the Netherlands. When I went to South America a couple of years ago the people (even the really poor ones) were in much better shape then the Americans I see.

The older people didn't have 50 pill bottles in front of them, they didn't eat a lot of processed foods and most don't have a car so they have to walk.

In general, happier people. Juts an observation but a striking one. You can't even go to the store without there being a line of those damn scooters because people have let themselves go to the point where they can't walk. I am not talking about the disabled either..I am talking about young people who are so fat they can't waddle around the store or choose not to because they are lazy.

It's a sad state of affairs.

Even African countries are now "developing countries" instead of "third world".

Anyway, you are all very welcome to Europe, emigration is just a step too far for most, because of family attachments, jobs, wifes, chauvinism, but at least start traveling abroad to get a glimpse of the real world outside the Big Dream.
