Nanny Hates Fat People
The improbably named European Congress on Obesity has extrapolated current obesity rates, and makes the rather bold prediction that by 2040 over 50% of us will be obese.
Well that's all very nice, if one assumes ceteris paribus. However, all other things are never equal.
Nanny is ignoring the very large fly in her oinkment, namely demand for food and food price inflation.
The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimate that by 2050 the demand for food will have risen by 70%.
Quite simply put, because supplies will not be able to keep up with demand, prices will rise and our ability to afford to eat the same quantities of protein dense foods will fall; ie like it or not, we will be eating less because we will not be able to afford to eat the same portion sizes or food types as we do now.
This rather knocks holes in Nanny's theories about more than 50% of us becoming obese.
