ATHENS, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – A recent study conducted by scientists in London found that the obese persons of the world are playing an increasingly large role in the rate at which the planet’s finite resources are used.
“Increasing population fatness could have the same implications for world food energy demands as an extra half a billion people living on the earth,” the study concluded.
The findings were published in the BMC Public Health journal earlier this year.
