Why are there more fat people?
I think that people generally have more disposable income. There is more fast food and junk food than ever and it's also cheap! Further compounding the problem is that many people don't have time to cook properly and others don't know how to. Throw in cars and various labour saving appliances, and you're going to get a fatter nation.
