Obesity worldwide on the rise

We’ve all heard on the news that obesity is an epidemic spreading throughout the world. Physicians agree that one of the most important variables linked to it is the food we eat. Even though other factors play a role as well, such as lack of exercise, genetics, and underlying diseases; the correlation between diet and obesity cannot be denied. The US is at the top of the list with 30.6% of the population being obese compared to 3.2% of Japanese and Koreans.

However, the food we eat is not only making us sick. It is also supporting the torturing and exploitation farmed animals are subjected to and the degradation of the environment. The legacy we are leaving for the generations to come is not a desirable one. The addiction to taste, the hardening of hearts and greed are just a reflection of our disobedience to God.
