The Foresight Report

The Foresight report on why we’re getting fatter:

The central message of the Foresight report, put together by a team headed by Sir David King, the government’s chief scientific adviser, was that there was no simple answer to the problem. The nation had “sleepwalked” into it because our hunter-gatherer biology was out of step with the technological convenience age; we were programmed to eat as if we did not know where the next meal was coming from. “If we just behave normally we will become obese,”

I would argue that it isn’t our biology that is wrong, but the food chain that has been developed by capitalism, with intensive farming and processed factory foods that contain the cheapest ingredients and loads of additives.
