Recent studies show that Americans has become one of the fattest countries. Is there any connection between obesity and eating beef? Listed below are lists of the top 30 meat-eating countries followed by a list of the top 13 fattest countries.
I’m not a scientist of course nor is this observation very scientific probably, but I have long held the intuitive thought that meat from hormonally and antibiotic filled supercharged corn-fed feed lot cattle has a direct connection to why so many Americans are obese. It’s my personal theory that the use of corn and hormones to fatten cattle is simply pasted on to humans further down the food chain. In other words the process not only fattens the cattle faster but it fattens the humans who consume the meat produced in the unnatural process.
As you can see below 11 of the top meat eating countries are also found among the top countries when it comes to obesity. I think it certainly plausible that there a connection and "you don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows"
