How Did We Get Here? Obesity Trends

Will it become a global problem?

Obesity Statistics

 

I Ask You:

Do you have any idea how we got to this situation?

  • Fast food?
  • Absent parents?
  • Processed food?
  • Bigger portions over decades?
  • Government lobbyists?

What do we do about it?

  • Tax junk food
  • Sliding scale for health care based on your current lifestyle?
