Why do people in the united states eat like they have a free healthcare?

In japan, our obesity rate is the lowest in the world, we also have free healthcare.

why is the typical american diet so high in sugar and fat when healthcare is so expensive in their country?

    That's great for Japan.  What makes America great is that we're the biggest risk takers, which makes sure we enjoy our freedom.  Of course, that would mean that more expensive healthcare and insurance, because of a higher rate of incidents involving high risk behavior.  A free healthcare system would ruin the medical system and our economy, as doctors and hospitals wouldn't be compensated for their services, and they'd just leave. 

    America would not be American if we limit options.  People can choose to live an unhealthy lifestyle, but have to deal with the consequences of it.  Not everyone is willing to pay more money for healthier food, so people decide to consume more affordable options, which happens to be cheaper to make, but unfortunately not as good for us.  Americans have big appetites, not just for food, but all things we enjoy.

    It's also why our death rate from Covid 19 is higher.

    The US has a large number of stupid people who are manipulated by politicians who are owned by big business.  Big business makes big profits by making these idiots fat and charging them big fees for health care.

    America has the worst health care system in the entire 1st world. It's overtly expensive, very inefficient, extremely prejudiced, and vastly favors the wealthy.

    The world laughs at our second rate American health care system.

    We feel guilty for nuking you in WW2.  {Your salt usage is very high (preserving, pickling, soy sause, etc), but within daily limits because you eat smaller portions. }

    In Japan you have to be skinny or you can’t fit in those drawers you have to sleep in.
