Kids are bigger and adults are bigger. And I think the cause is directly related to the food we eat and the drugs we take. That's coming from someone who grew up on a farm and common sense.
Think about it.
You're drinking milk from cows treated with Bovine Growth Hormone (BGH). That drug makes cows grow bigger and produce more. Guess what it does to people who drink the milk. Any nursing mom can tell you that what she eats gets to her baby.
And if you're a carnivore, you're also eating the cow...those hamburgers and steaks...
Chickens are also given drugs to make them grow faster and plumper. Again, guess what drugs go into your system when you eat them...and what affect they have on your shape.
People in general are looking a little plumper.
There's a new movie out called Food, Inc. that's worth a look. Not playing everywhere. Maybe there's a reason for that.
What are you eating?
