If tuberculosis and hunger are the main causes of death in the third world (poor countries) then obesity, on the contrary, is one of the main causes of death in the rich and affluent countries.
I just can't imagine how one's body fails to warn the system when one indulges in excessive eating. How could one grow so much like the one depicted in this pic? It's really crazy and unimaginable.
