Health experts blame passive overeating for global pandemic, warning in the Lancet that governments must tackle obesity now
What, you mean the pokers aren\’t putting the food into their own mouths? Digesting it to produce flobbling rolls of glutinous fat?
They\’re just absorbing the over-weightness from the passing air?
Swinburn\’s paper comes up with a clear primary culprit: a powerful global food industry \”which is producing more processed, affordable, and effectively-marketed food than ever before\”.
He said an \”increased supply of cheap, palatable, energy-dense foods\”, coupled with better distribution and marketing, had led to \”passive overconsumption\”.
Nutritious food, ever cheaper. The thing that all and every species has been searching for since that very first set of chemicals learnt how to copy themselves in the oceans of 3.5 billion years ago.
