Modern David


David by Michelangelo 



It takes a lot of money to buy all the food needed to gain so much weight.

Is it gluttony?
or
It can actually be a disease.

"The hormones leptin, insulin, oestrogens, androgens and growth hormone influence our appetite, metabolism and body fat distribution. People who are obese have hormone levels that encourage the accumulation of body fat."
Obesity and hormones - Better Health Channel

But:
Why does it seem that there are many more
overweight people than in the past?

Maybe:
-High fat and sweet fast food restaurants?
-Larger portions?
-Advertisement?
-Stress?

Any Ideas?
