[Homework]【整理】2010-07-11 中国人日益严重的肥胖问题

This would be a brave performance anywhere in the world. But here in China it's an invitation to ridicule. In a country where most people are naturally slim, being overweight, especially if you are a woman, is found upon. It's these dancers, who call themselves the 'fat artistic true', are trying to change people's minds. I used to think that life was very unfair. I even attempted suicide. But since I've started dancing, I feel that society can finally accept me. And the fact is China itself is changing shape.
Once upon a time, it was a country of equally-theme communists. Now socialist regality has given way to capilist access, waying China down with the fruits of consumilism. Well, in the last thirty years it has been a process of famine to feast in two generations. Availability, accessibility of food is just widespread now, so people have more money. And they're just eating more, more and more of everything. There are already a hundred million of these Chinese, and that number is predicted to double in just five years. This country's obesity apademic has caused a spike in health problems like diabetes and heart disease.
So now China is on a diet, working off the telltail of economic success. In a country that used to worry about manutrition, these are very strange things. At loph the people diet hospital, the doctors have turned to traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture, they say, can suppress appetite and speed up their patients matabilisms. Xiao Yang weighs in a twenty-three stone and wants to end the discrimination she suffered her whole life. If two people go for the same job with exactly the same skills, they'll always pick the more beautiful one, and don't even get the thirst about finding a man.  They may be new to the diet game, but the Chinese have learned an old lesson very quickly: No pain, no gain.
