Interesting presentation about research on obesity by age. Nice animated charts on the growing  obesity share, at every age, by each birth cohort since the Silent (born 1925-1942)

Given the known correlation between obesity and a very wide variety of chronic and acute diseases, from diabetes to heart attack to cancer, this trend may do nearly as much to shorten longevity for today’s younger generations as medical innovation (at gargantuan cost) works to lengthen it.

    Good pointer. The growth of US obesity, over time, has been a fascination for my wife and I.

    The increase in world- wide obesity is rather disturbing. Not only is it an addiction, and disease, it is also a marker that depicts the increase of stress for modern generations in this society. Unhealthy eating patterns correlate to a person's subconscious that is affected by something traumatic that happened in childhood. Hypnotherapy is strongly recommended for tramas and addictive healing.
