Your philosophy on this is weird and it sounds like you're giving overweight & unhealthy people an excuse not to eat better and excercise. I've been around many gyms for over 40 yrs now and have met a lot of people. I've seen so many overweight people over the years commit to a more healthy lifestyle losing a lot of weight through diet & excercise. These are both young & old individuals. And with many it isn't all rainbows & marshmallows in their personal lives; divorces, child issues, family deaths, work stress, financial issues, psychological issues, alcohol & drug problems. But yet they have found the time to commit to a healthier lifestyle and not make excuses. When you put your mind to something you can do it.Where do you think so-called will power comes from? You think it's created spontaneously in someone's head? Effects have causes. Sometimes people make the effort because they've educated themselves on how important it is to lose weight. The willingness to listen and change doesn't come out of thin air, it's a product of someone's environment, physiology and biochemistry. Same with the effort made to lose weight.
Newsflash. Free will, in the traditional sense of a force independent of mind and body, doesn't exist. It's not just incompatible with the scientific view of cause and effect. It's incoherent. We behave the way we do for reasons. Reasons are causes. We aren't some self-caused gods.
And it doesn't have to be a gym or fitness center either. Research has shown that just 30 mins of brisk walking every day can, in additional to losing weight, significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc. And eating healthy isn't expensive. Most Walmarts these days carry organic produce, eggs, dairy, etc., that is very reasonably priced. I've known mininmum-wage slave workers who could barely afford a gym membership able to eat very healthy through what Walmart has to offer.
As I said, most of these obese people simply don't care. What many people don't get is that obesity is a preventable condition. They could, if they really wanted to, dump the toxic crap food and eat healthy, and at least start moving more and getting the weight down (there's tons of websites to assist obese people in eating healthy and starting an excercise program plus there are weight loss experts that deal exclusively with overweight people). Instead, they blame their obesity on personal problems & society and so forth expecting people to feel sorry for them (there's even reality TV shows about them!) And now with Covid, a lot of them are, and have been, overwhelming the hospitals causing panic with government officials which causes them to implement these insidious lockdowns and restrictions (see El Paso's recent lockdown from overcrowded hospitals). There has to be some personal responsibility that these people need to be accountable for - though many Liberals don't seem to see it that way.
Yeah...what about Moncada? He says the only symptoms he had was anosmia & ageusia and that his performance has been going down over the months upon returning to play. But...he also has been dealing with a chronic lower leg injury that could as well been the reason for his poor play. So, maybe he's trying to chalk off his poor performance to "Covid" instead of the leg issue.How about Yoan Moncada? Think his symptoms are like those of the flu? How about Eduardo Rodriguez?
Rodriguez has confirmed myocarditis from his Covid infection. But how many does that make from MLB? Just this one case?
And previous cases of myocarditis with athletes has been caused from influenza and other viral & bacterial infections...nothing new there.
"Myocarditis in Athletes:"
Myocardial involvement during viral infection is underestimated (∼5%). Most infections are not perceived and resolve spontaneously. Symptoms may be non-specific, but include new onset of angina in a young athlete, chest pain, increased resting and exercise heart rate, increased dyspnoea...
"Acute myocarditis is a well-known complication of influenza infection."
Acute myocarditis is a well-known complication of influenza infection. The frequency of myocardial involvement in influenza infection varies widely, with the clinical severity ranging from asymptomatic to fulminant varieties. The worst cases can result in death due to impaired cardiac function...
