The lamest rhetorical question in the English language. Requires the answer of 'Fine' no matter how you feel or why you are going to have a conversation. An exercise for the lips and tongue.
I was dying of cancer and had to see my doctor. He asked me, "How are you?"

Oft used as a do-not-bother-replying greeting, "how are you" represents the impersonalization of modern society stretched to an extent never witnessed before. It is however still okay to use it as long as you genuinely care.
EXAMPLE 1
Person A: Hi, how are you?
Person B: How are you?
(Conversation over)

EXAMPLE 2
Person A: Hi, how are you?
Person B: Like you care.
