We’ve lived in an era filled with paradox. On the one hand, overweight and obesity have become concerning global issues. On the other hand, unhealthy diet trends and ill-informed health info have misled people into harming themselves.
According to WHO, obesity cases have tripled since 1975. In 2016, 39% of adults were overweight, while 13% were obese. And even children are not safe from this health condition because over 340 million of them are known to be obese or overweight.
Food and Agriculture Organization and the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World surveyed in 2016 and found out that 11% of the global population was undernourished. Guardian UK even published a news article of five studies that result in finding out poor diet as a factor in one in five deaths. From these facts, we can conclude that although we live in an era where information is pervasive, some of us are still vulnerable to false knowledge.
