So my wife and I just went to the Zoo where we live. It was a very crowded day and we were pretty disturbed with the obesity of the crowd. So many young people driving around motorized carts because they are too fat.
We recently went to Sea World in Orlando and saw the same thing. It's really sad, it's no way to live.
Alt medicine is a pretty broad thing. To "believe or not believe" in something like that is silly imo. I will go to a meeting and see what type of people are in the group. Like most things it will have to do with the individuals as much as anything else.
