China's Wealth Breeds Obesity Asia

China's Wealth Breeds Obesity, Sparking Boom in Stomach Surgery. Well, it seems that obesity isn't a western problem anymore. In fact, some would argue that obesity has been exported by the western world into China.

In a more serious note, it is getting more and more obvious why obesity is becoming an epidemic. Lack of exercise plus excessive consumption of simple carbohydrates and bad fats.

And it really doesn't matter historically, how lean your ancestors are so you can't blame everything on the fat gene. The Chinese are one of the skinniest people on the planet and if they are getting fat, the fat gene theory is getting thrown out the window.

And it is ironic that the foods that are bad for you in the developed countries are usually cheaper than the healthy foods. It is is the opposite in the underdeveloped countries. And guess which side has an abundance of a healthy population? This is such an interesting subject that I will definitely talk about at a later post.
