America: Bigger and Badder (or at least bigger)
The Centers for Disease Control posted a slideshow that chronicles how obesity has spread in the past 20 years. Scary stuff.
One of my friends thinks that the prevalence of obesity in America is a sign of "late society" - decline brought on by our own success and consumption. She likens it to how the Ancient Romans needed vomitoriums because there was so much binging going on (supposedly, anyway).
