The question is what has led to our obesity epidemic? Is it due to the
spread of globalism? Is it due to outward influences? Or is it due to inward influences, and a rise in modernism? Are countries developing too rapidly to keep up with the nutritional needs, spending their newly disposable income on foods that lack essential nutrients but are high in calories? Or are we "Westernizing" the country through remote acculturation, using media, and the import of highly processed foods to other countries?
