I woyuld say it's not only the diet that people are eating, but it could also be something akin to natural selection. I imagine that the diet we eat have more to do with our bodys (Which kinda doesn't make sense if you think about it), but I say that because there are more tall power, that particular gene is being passed down, I think.

My dad and I were actually having a conversation about this at our family thanksgiving gathering. He told me how when he was growing up all the fast foods portions were alot smaller, and kids were more active. They didn't have video games or watched that much tv. They were always outside or going places.

I have the answer for you. In chickens, cows, pigs, etc they are given antibiotics, steriods, and hormones to grow faster, bigger, and be healthy. You cant sell a sick cow's milk. All these hormones and other things companies are putting in the food are affecting our bodies. My generation of females (Im 23) have significantly larger breasts than those in the generations before us. This is a study we had to look at in my undergrad class and was done using stats from the US, canada and Britian. Look up what they put into cows.

Probably because they're not as active and eat a whole lot more. Portions at resturaunts used to be alot smaller when my parents were growing up and the burgers were so small too. Now you have 5 lb burgers and all that kind of stuff...like regular or 'petite' burgers...the petite burger is humongous too...And I saw a kid it a regular all by himself with in 20 minutes and he was about 7 or 8 and huge. I think its sad because America child obesity is getting out of control...

Its probably because they eat alot more and aren't as active as kids from back in the day before all the play stations and all that stuff. I was a skinny kid...Even though I was a girl I would always be out playin with the guys especially when I realized guys were cute...I got into sports and would beg my big brother to let my play with them...I'm like the girliest tomboy lol if thats even possible. But kids today dont play outside anymore...I dont even remember the last time I saw a kid riding a bike in my neighborhood and I know they live in the neighborhood.
