Chilling Study Reveals The Unpreparedness Of US Military

In a chilling study showing the unreadiness of the U.S. military, we have come to find out that 70% of all soldiers are either overweight or obese.

The American Security Project, a Washington-based nonprofit organization, recently revealed that nearly seven in 10 U.S. troops fall into the overweight or obese category, as defined by the Body Mass Index (BMI).

“Rapid and sustained recurrence of obesity across all services, ranks and positions now poses a dire threat, especially for at-risk populations and those in critical combat roles,” the group’s report reads. “Designing an effective strategy to monitor and tackle obesity within the U.S. military begins by treating it like any other chronic disease.”

Such a trend is disastrous for the U.S. as it seeks to defend Israel against Hamas, a terrorist organization. Recently, President Joe Biden ordered 2,000 troops to be deployed into the Holy Land temporarily in non-combatant roles.

The American Security Project’s study found that the number of soldiers who are obese has more than doubled over the past 10 years, from 10.4% in 2012 to 21.6% in 2022, The National Pulse reported.

The study shows just how unprepared and out-of-touch the U.S.’s military leaders truly are. Instead of addressing the physical needs of soldiers to prepare them for war, should that ever occur in the future, they are more interested in spreading lies associated with gender ideology.

Considering the high percentage of obese troops in the military, the recruitment process has gone downhill. Indeed, obesity is the leading disqualifier for many seeking to join the military and often leads troops to become injured or medically discharged.

The American Security Project’s data was supplied by the Pentagon between 2018 and 2021 involving active-duty members in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, according to Stars and Stripes. The group also obtained records from the Military Health System and the Defense Medical Surveillance System.

After using data compiled from the Military Health System Data Repository, the group said, “Based on the results from this study … increases in BMI among Army soldiers are likely to continue unless there is intervention.”

“By adequately screening for obesity, military services can develop proactive measures to address obesity,” the group added. “Early screenings for obesity and related health conditions, such as prediabetes and high cholesterol, are associated with sustained weight loss, better health outcomes and a lower cost burden on healthcare systems.”
