Obesity a byproduct of modern life, says study

Filed under:

Most of us read regularly that obesity comes from overeating the foods we should not be eating in the first place along with no exercise. Combine those two and you get -- voila -- obesity.

While those are certainly reasons for the extreme chunkiness many of us have, a British study this week says that obesity is simply a byproduct of "modern life."

The study did not go into detail about specific actions that contribute to obesity, but called the phenomenon out as being way more passive that have traditionally been though. The study went on to make the point that humans' biological makeup is out of step with modern surroundings (cars, TVs, etc.). I agree with that completely. I still think that modern food is a huge part of the problem (isn't that a "surrounding?").
