possible for huge quantities of mass foods to be produced which are high in energy (Friedman
12). Many labor conserving and transportation equipments were made as a result of

man’s purpose of including in their species an inside mechanism for keeping its own
nourishment. All through famine, natural selection enabled energy storage genotypes of those

factors. The emergence of obesity slightly shift...
