1. Gee, is it overeating or
could the obesity epidemic be a combination of factors that stem from the kinds of foods being consumed?

We have high fructose corn syrup in so many foods and drinks, additives up the wazoo and enticements everywhere. Television pours, "Aren't you hungry?" down the receptive channels and restaurants are practically ubiquitous. Nothing like a little Pavlov to sell a desire for more food when eating should simply be an act that ends at satiation.

Obesity is easily commodified though. As long as there is a profit to be made, it is all good and will continue until people start to become aware that they are being treated like the livestock their owners consider them to be. It is not hard to see what, (beyond an illness or genetic proclivity) is increasing the breadth and width of people exposed to a manufactured life that is totally out of balance with nature.

When you add in the sedentary nature of most human livestock, which includes copious feeding at the video tit and deep immersion in virtual game worlds, it seems that obesity is simply your body's way of telling you that something is really wrong with the culture you are controlled and so easily manipulated by.
