The Forbidden Parallel


The growth of weight among Americans, which began in the 1980s, picked up speed in the 1990s and continues to widen waists and broaden asses, has squeezed the nonfat population into abnormality. Fat is the new norm. People who aren’t overweight make up a minority, about 30% of all adults. They are exceptions to the rule of the heavies. The general big-size development is attributed to many factors with too-much-food and too-little-activity topping the list. Or, as the National Institute of Health (NIH) expresses it, “People gain weight when they eat more calories than they burn through activity. This imbalance is the greatest contributor to weight gain.”

Seems rather straight forward, doesn’t it? But what about the parallel growth? A trend (the forbidden parallel) follows the weight-increase trend practically as though it were one rail of train tracks. Imagine these two trends as lines on a simple graph. The one line designates weight-increase from the early 1980s until today, and the other line designates…    Guess! What is the other (forbidden) parallel trend?

The guesses supplied by this question are mostly sensible, but rarely correct. Before revealing the name of the trend, I must declare that many factors are involved in the fat-growth epidemic, and that the trend I’m about to name is not the only factor, BUT, the trend is undeniable and at odds with conventional wisdom. The consumption of artificial sweeteners and light products has increased parallel to the increase in fatties.

How is this possible? How can weight increase alongside the increase in calorie-reducing additives substituting for sugar? What’s going on here? How can light produce heavy? The two trends are indisputable. Can it be, as more and more researchers are claiming, that light products containing artificial sweeteners confuse and stress our natural metabolism and promote cravings for more and more food? That light products are fattening? (and health damaging?) Hmmm? The corporations growing obese with sweet profits assure us (through their well-paid authorities , third-party institutes and media affiliates) that these nonfood elements tricking our bodies help us maintain slender physiques. It seems that the emperor is not only naked but  XXXL as well.

For those of you who trust the authorities, regard the NIH named above as it lists one of the additional factors causing obesity & overweight. “Genetics” it claims “plays a role in obesity.” Talk about using a truth to promote a lie! While a genetic oddity can cause obesity in an exceptional individual or two, listing genetics as a cause of a trend qualifies as extreme ignorance. A health professional making such a claim cannot be labeled so lightly. A fat-head with heavy incompetence is more adequate. Or someone who has swallowed too many artificial smartening pills.
