Global food shortage
This has got to be the most disgusting fact in today's society. The USA has the largest population of obese humans in the world. While we are trying to loose extra pounds the rest of the world is struggling with a food shortage. Throughout history, obesity has been a sign of wealth for a dominant society. The Romans were fat, the major Kings and Queens of Europe were plump if not down right FAT, this was a sign that they were powerful enough to have food. Being fat might be a sign of wealth but it is not a sign of health. I am calling on all the wealthy societies of the world to knock off the over indulging in food. If food is a sign of wealth then spread that wealth (food) to the less fortunate countries of the world. Obesity and world hunger should not be going on at the same time - let's ban together and stop it.
