World More Obese than Underweight


There are now more people with obesity in the world, than people who are underweight. This according to a new study in the Lancet. Add people who are overweight and there are four times more.


Not in the graph above that if this epidemic continues soon more than 50% of humanity will be overweight. Most developed countries have already passed that point.

Obviously this is not due to a sudden world-wide loss of character. It’s because of a change in the environment: a fear of natural fat, a shortage of real unprocessed foods and (most of all) easy access to massive amounts of sugar and other refined carbs.
