I don’t know who developed such information, nor who believes it, but here is something I just read. Americans are the second fattest people in the world. Stunning isn’t it. Guess who is the first? Mexicans. I guess it is because we are the best fed nation and the food cost less here. You can contribute the best fed and the cheapest to our farmers. But if we are the fattest how can we be the healthiest? And where does the statistic fit in here. We have one of the world’s highest rates of type 2 diabetes. One report says one out of ten people. Well, if one out of seven is obese, it stands to reason. But here is the shocker. Health officials forecast these figures to continue. Perhaps even rise. All of the advice about saturated fats and animal protein in our diets is not likely to change anything in the foreseeable future. There you are.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner.
