Has now managed to curse 1/3rd of our children with the same gluttonous self-wounding.
Almost one-third of 9-month-olds are obese or overweight, as are 34 percent of 2-year-olds, according to the research, which looked at a nationally representative sample of children born in 2001. The study is one of the first to measure weight in the same group of very young children over time, said lead researcher Brian Moss, a sociologist at Wayne State University in Detroit. The results showed that starting out heavy puts kids on a trajectory to stay that way. “If you were overweight at nine months old, it really kind of sets the stage for you to remain overweight at two years,” Moss told LiveScience.
Unsure as to whether the stats are right or not? Pay a visit to your local elementary school on Monday. Overindulgence (in so many things) is destroying us.

We’re going to reap the whirlwind.
