Is our toxic soup environment a cause for obesity? Is it making us fatter?

Depends on what... Your "toxic soup" is defined as. If the environment is toxic because of processed foods, sedentary lifestyles and supersized portions/all you can eat-costco sized mentality...Yes! if you are referring to our industrialized polluted environment-maybe. When was the last time you: rode a bike to work? Parked far away to walk to your destination? Ate 5 servings of veggies, fruits and roots?
