With the advances in technology and medicine that our world has seen in the past several decades, it’s almost hard to grasp why we’re continually getting unhealthier and more obese as time goes on. But as with the introduction of anything new into a society, there are both good and bad sides to it.
Although we are able to battle and ward off medical conditions through scientific developments and improved technology, we’re also living in a world of convenience. Drive-thrus, ordering food from our smart phones and computers and getting everything we want in a snap is also causing us to dig our own graves.
While some countries have started to show a slight decline in both adult and childhood obesity, this problem is still very present. Documentaries and studies have been created and produced in an attempt to identify just what it is that is causing this health epidemic. While there may not be one perfect answer, one of the clear contributors to this problem is overconsumption of carbohydrates.
Carbs are great- they’re the main source of energy for the body and are essential for proper function. But the large majority of obese individuals aren’t eating the right carbs, and they’re eating too many of them, period.
If our world’s population sat around consuming whole grain pastas and breads instead of Pop Tarts, it’s safe to say we probably wouldn’t be facing as large an epidemic as we are today.
