More to the point, it's the PROCESSED CRAPPY FOOD, stupid.

Cheaper processed foods contribute to the world’s bulging waistline

Decades of choosing cheaper processed foods over nutritious but otherwise costly foods have greatly contributed to the worsening global obesity epidemic, a London-based thinktank states.

According to the Overseas Development Institute, prices of fruits and vegetables in certain countries — including China, Mexico, Brazil, and Korea — surged by up to 91% between 1990 and 2012, while prices of some processed foods such as prepackaged meals declined by up to 20% during the same period. In the U.K., prices of fruits and vegetables tripled between 1980 and 2012, while the price of an ice cream showed a 50% decrease over the same period.

Sounds almost as if someone planned it this way, no? 8-) Naw, no one would do such a thing, would they? :twisted: ... world.html

It's puzzling though . . . why would the Bahamas have the highest obesity rate when they also have some of the best weather in the world for growing their own foods? That doesn't make good sense.

The Bahamas showed the highest obesity rate at 69%, followed by Mexico and Chile at 64% and 63%, respectively.
