Filed under: Health — @ March 26, 2006

The obesity numbers continue to grow and grow (LITERALLY!) while government and health officials just scratch their heads in bewilderment wondering why.

But it can all be traced back 50 years ago when the consumption of sugar grew exponentially and the modern conveniences we enjoy today took away from the hard work ethic that our ancestors had to keep themselves slim and trim.

Jeff Garcia hit on this point squarely in his commentary called “Want To Lose Weight – Then Don’t Diet!”

bq. Over the last 50 odd years our diet has changed out of all recognition and yet our body is doing the same as it has been doing for well over the last 100,000 years. We are in the 21st century, our body is still in the ‘Stone Age’. So, it is us that need to change…because Mother Nature will not entertain us for thousands of years to come.
