Why Americans are fat

Posted in bête, food, moche et stupide, obesity by Deputy city editor on October 24, 2007

I thank Patricia Bauer for this striking image; I don’t know where she found it! I think it would be best to share the delivery portion with a friend, or dog.

Patricia, who is an American and by no means overweight writes the best blog in the world on Trisomy 21 (Down’s Syndrome) and related matters.

    Bottom line, people are simply not educated enough when it comes to nutrition. If they taught classes like this in school, I guarantee people would think twice about shoving a big mac down their throat.

    I am afraid that nutrition is not well taught in the UK either. There seems to be a big correlation in the USA between weight and economic class with the poorer fatter and the richer trimmer. Education must explain much of the difference. But also, the rich can simply afford better food. I am always shocked in America at the portions. The wastage is incredible.
