First example of Creeping Obesity’s genius: it lets us do all the work. It has set up a system in which it only has to sit back and watch us destroy ourselves.

Creeping Obesity doesn’t sneak into our rooms and inject our bodies with processed grains and sugars. It doesn’t even sneak them into our pantries and refrigerators.

We go out and buy those things ourselves. Then we bring them home. We eat and drink them. We drink the sodas and drinks. We eat the chips, cereals and other snacks.

Sure it has some clever marketing working in its favor. Sure the bad stuff is cheap to acquire and easy to consume, but you and I do all the dirty work. Dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

The beast doesn’t feed you. You feed the beast.
