Skinny Jeans with an Obese Country
The United States is facing a giant crisis. Obesity is on the rise and health is decreasing. With fast food being more prevalent than ever, quality food is not part of our daily diets.

These fast food restaurants are pulling families in with cheap food, toys for kids and the ease of on-the-go. The high sugar and salt in this food is causing people to gain weight.
People may not have realized however, that while obesity is a problem, there is a bigger problem at hand.
A tweet from Mind Blown spoke about the problem with rising obesity and the trend of skinny jeans in America. People are
getting bigger than ever and our pants have never been this small. Part of me wonders how these people even get their clothes on in the first place. People are trying so hard to fit into the crowd that they wear things that don’t flatter them or that don’t fit them. But people need to be aware that there are serious health issues that skinny jeans bring.
Smosh.com wrote “A study published in the Wall Street Journal has linked skinny jeans to a myriad of health issues, including nerve compression, digestive problems, lower back pain and even blood clots. YIKES! There’s even a name for it ‘Tight Pant Syndrome’.”
The skinny jean fad started with emo kids and then went to hipsters and are now mainstream, which means hipsters have moved on to something that we probably have never heard of.
America, this is a call to you. Please stop wearing skinny jeans. We are to big to be wearing that little of fabric. If you don’t want to look good, you can wear sweatpants or tank tops. But leave the skinny jeans for the skinny people or try getting in shape before you wear the skinny jeans.
