actually in various cultures, being obese was a sign of wealth. since you had the riches to expend on a lot of food. and could eat very well.
.
in others, it is seen as a sign of beauty. and in those cultures, mothers will try to plump up their daughters as much as possible to get them married off.
.
http://scsuintellectuals.wordpress.com/2009/0... In some places, especially those stricken with poverty, obesity is a symbol of wealth. While the poor toil away usually with extreme malnutrition and starvation, the wealthy class is free to consume endlessly. This over-consumption promotes obesity. Usually, therefore, the obese in these locations are associated with wealth.
.
and the problems with those being overweight is not a new thing. scientists have found evidence of some of the dead having what we think is a condition of modern times. things like heart problems.
.
http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2013/03/12/w... A new study of 137 mummified bodies, some as old as 3,500 years, found a high prevalence of hardening of the arteries, which often presages heart attack or stroke.
.
http://esciencenews.com/sources/la.times.heal... CT scans of people who lived on three continents as much as 5,000 years ago suggest humans may have a basic predisposition to cardiovascular problems, researchers say.People tend to think of heart disease as a scourge of modern life, brought on by vices such as greasy fast food, smoking and the tendency to be a couch potato.
You got a point Sang,some african tribes do show favorable attention to larger women!

No margarine in my home either. I even go so far as to buy plain white microwave popcorn and add real butter. If Bloomberg wants to go after something, he should go after that yellow transmission fluid they call butter in movie theaters. But he is probably already crafting legislation to ban popcorn because you could choke on the hulls.
that commie better not go after popped corn. it is one snack a diabetic can have. as long as it is pretty much on the plain side. unless you use stuff like what Mrs Dash makes.

Soul food is NOT healthy food, and fast food is just one of the MANY unhealthy foods out there. Also Michelle Phelps is the single greatest Olympic athlete in the world. For every great black athlete there is a great white, yellow, or brown one.
P.S. if all cultures have it then why are blacks 51% higher than whites, while Latinos (which have the same wealth levels as blacks) are half that? I also call it cultural because my grandma was Italian. I am very much aware of cultural dietary problems. I am also not blaming anyone for this culture; I am saying that culture needs to change. God knows I would eat homemade tomato sauce, cooked with pork chops, lamb, Italian sausage, and meatballs every night if I could. I personally want to live to see 60, so I donít eat that stuff anymore.
Who is Michelle Phelps?

Real corn bread is cooked with lard and real greens are cooked with butter.

P.S. There are dozens of potato salad recipies out there. I am not sure which one would be considered soul food. I do know that none of them are good for you.

sorry. but you are wrong. diabetes does to a point have a genetic predisposition.
.
http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/genet... Type 1 and type 2 diabetes have different causes. Yet two factors are important in both. You inherit a predisposition to the disease then something in your environment triggers it.
.
http://www.genetichealth.com/dbts_genetics_of... If you or someone in your family has Type 1 diabetes, you may wonder if other family members are at risk. It turns out that Type 1 diabetes does often run in families. In fact, researchers have found nearly 20 different genes that can affect your risk for developing diabetes.
.
by the way, I'm not the one who is diabetic. my husband is a type 2. so as a good wife I studied what foods he can have in various amounts. and what other foods he has to avoid. so I know what to do in order to help him out for him to stay healthy. plus several members of his family, including his dad, have type 2 as well.

you are sooo full of it. my husband has been otherwise very healthy. you would have seen that his is a genetic one if you had read the part of his family having it. and they are all healthy too. except for having diabetes. they have through their lives all ate healthy and exercise. and stayed slender for their lives.
.
http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/11/09/diabetes... Yes. Having a family member with diabetes raises your risk of developing type 1 by about 5 percent and type 2 diabetes by more than 30 percent.
I'm skinny, so I can't get diabetes, right?
Being overweight is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes, but 20 percent of people who get it are slim.
.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/24716880/#.UVN1ghzl... Even a thin person can get diabetes
It's the sugar-coated secret of America's fastest-growing disease
If you think being thin gives you a free pass from this deadly disease, well, it may have a surprise in store for you, too.
