Nothing in my screed mentioned age, so I wonder about your use of the word adulting or your use of the sentence fragment the children.
Actually, I am not blaming the victim here. I am well aware that obesity was anecdotal back in the 1960s, when I saw exactly one person who I would consider obese*, as compared to now, when almost every person, child or adult, I see is heaping over their belt in some obscene muffin top.
People are fat like that as the result of a policy pursued by Earl Butz at the behest of Richard M Nixon to transition the US from a predominantly wheat based diet (which could be sold to Europe and to the Soviet Union, [which after several 5 year plans has ruined the Ukraine as its bread basket partially through Stalin’s murder of 25 million Kulaks,]) to a predominantly corn based diet (which meant that we had to learn to eat pig slop and like it).
This led to the creation of the abomination called High Fructose Corn Syrup and to its promotion to such an extent that a walk through any grocery store aisle will reveal its presence everywhere.
HFCS is not a natural product and nature does not know what to do with it, so it stores it and encysts it away in fat cells. Those same cells that are stuffing the muffin tops and clogging the arteries of poor and middle-class US citizens young and old. (Politically connected 1%ers and billlionaires do not eat that crap. They own farms where no HFCS products are allowed and Monsanto’s Round Up™ is entirely absent.)
*) He was lying on the floor of a diner in a building where I worked, having an epileptic fit.what you posted was fat bashing, and like all bullies, you don’t like to be called on it, which is which the question of your age – understood as maturity – comes in. I am guessing you speak American English which is all dom/sub and no actual exchange of content.Mais non. Je ne suis pas un anglophone.

A Single Stressful Event May Cause Long-Term Effects in the Brain
A recent study found that a single stressful event may cause long-term consequences in the brain. The authors had found earlier that a short protocol of stress (40 min) enhances the release of glutamate (the major excitatory transmitter) in the prefrontal cortex (PFC), an effect due mainly to an increase in the number of glutamate-containing vesicles available for release at synapses.
