New research has shown that global obesity rates have doubled since 1980. Doubled in thirty years! Before you get jealous that the rest of the world is catching up just know that America is still number one. Yes, amongst developing countries, USA still wears the crown as the fattest. USA! USA! USA! This article on the MSNBC website warns that the increasing numbers of obese people could lead to a "global tsunami of cardiovascular disease." I know this isn't funny but put on your visualization cap and picture a global tsunami of cholesterol plaque just washing over entire cities. It's not pretty.
Once again I want you to remember these numbers as you see ads for the supposed global hunger epidemic. Question them. Ask how can there be so many hungry people (especially in developed countries) if the obesity rate has doubled? The response will be the bogus term "food insecurity". Yes, I agree, the world is hungrier and we are getting fatter because of it.
