"$2,202,873 tax dollars were spent to study why many Lebanese are obese.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded the money to study the biological and social factors that cause a large number of Lebanese to be obese. According to NIH three-quarters of Lebanese are obese — they call it an issue of “high public-health significance.”

A hospital in Boston, Brigham and Women’s, received grants to carry out the study. The overall goal is to study the relationship between Lebanese and obesity.

Part of the grant reads, “Obesity is one of the most critical public health issues affecting the U.S. today. Racial and socioeconomic disparities in the determinants, distribution, and consequences of obesity are receiving increasing attention.”

“However, one area that is only beginning to be recognized is the striking interplay of Lebanese obesity disparities,” it continues, “is now well-established that Lebanese are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic. In stark contrast, among men, Lebanese males have nearly double the risk of obesity.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports, “The project has survived budget cuts due to sequestration, which the NIH warned would ‘delay progress in medical breakthroughs.’”

Despite the NIH claiming that the cuts are “delaying progress” in the development of cancer drugs, the Lebanese study continues to receive funding.

The NIH said, “NIH research addresses the full spectrum of human health across all populations of Americans. Research into unhealthy human behaviors that are estimated to be the proximal cause of more than half of the disease burden in the U.S. will continue to be an important area of research supported by NIH.”

Is this study worth of $2 million, or is it a waste of tax dollars? Let us know what you think in the comments section below." - benswann.com
