You bet! There are numerous health problems associated with obesity and it is placing a huge strain on the medical system. Caring for obesity related disease is a huge cost in terms of money and resources. I also believe obesity skews the food and nutrition industries. Food can be an addiction. No wonder fast food stays in business.
If it is the new "norm", then it is forming a new American society. Not destroying, but still not healthy in any case.

Obesity is becoming the societal norm. The American Way of life is becoming the obese way of life.
