Yahoo News says the number of overweight people in the world is accounting for much more food to feed them. They said a study done reveals that the world is 17 million tons overweight which is equivalent to an extra 242 million people of average weight. The UN predicts by 2050 there will be an additional 2.3 billion people on Earth. If weight stays on the rise as well, the numbers are far worse. Where will all the food come from to sustain such an overweight population. In addition, weight contributes to illnesses. Healthcare will increase out of control as well. Something must be done!
