Obesity levels around the world have more than doubled since 1980 when the globalization era began.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

"It may be that the US is beginning to start to learn how to eat and adjust its lifestyle to a global one. The hypothesis is that this rise in obesity is only transitory."
Transitory as in chronic, expensive to treat and ...terminal?

Check back with these figures to compare here

Though you might want to check back as far as the 1500's and mercantilism in general for health side-effects.

... and now when you health begins to fade you can just take pills and continue to eat what you want.

If you qualify you can continue to get fat at the governments expense with free medical and free food.

That's a twofer...
