The world now has more obese people than starving people

Being overweight was one of the rarest sights in the world until the 19th century when mass production allowed food to be produced in ridiculously huge quantities. Throughout history being overweight was a sign of the rich, who were the only ones able to afford more than the bare minimum. However, in the last century, and especially within the last two decades, the amount of obese people throughout America and the World has skyrocketed.

Today, 800 million people go to bed hungry every night, which is still an extremely large number, yet that figure does not even compare to the 1.3 billion who are classified as obese! China is a perfect example of this. In 1989 there were considered hardly any overweight people, however today nearly 25% of the population is considered obese!
