The other day my son said to me “where there as many fat people around when you where young as there are today?”
The answer of course has to be no.
I was born in 1956 and my memories of the 60’s and 70’s was plenty of
fresh food and very few “take away” establishments, fish and chips and the odd Chinese was about it.
Moving on into the late 70’s and 80’s we saw a massive increase in frozen foods, and take aways.
Throw in computers and home entertainment and we have a mainly sedentary population eating
takeaways and microwave foods, i don’t know how this trend can be changed but i’m pretty
sure that if it isn’t changed life expectancy is going to fall and for sure airplane seating will have to be re-evaluated .
