What you people seem to forget is that widespread obesity has NOT been an epidemic throughout human history.Walmart Security said:I dont think that fast food accounts for most of obesity... or atleast all of it. It goes deeper than that. My cousin takes this one medicine that has made her burn weight at a slower pace, before the medicine... she was skinny. And dont forget about genetics, those also play a role in obesity.
That pretty much eliminates "genetic factors" as the source of the current epidemic of obesity.
What in our culture has changed over the past few decades or century to change humanity's eating habits? Sitting down and eating with your family? Nope!
Fast food and high-calorie, fat, carbohydrate snacks with addictive chemicals and high fructose corn syrup? Yep!
What else has changed? Automobiles, computers, video games, etc.
These aren't difficult concepts.
