eating ourselves to death

Kinesis shares some statistics about wealth and poverty she is gleaning during her South African journey.

I can't help but compare those statistics to the experience I had with a muffin at Albertson's on Saturday. Looking for something that might appeal for an early breakfast before long supply drive, I browsed the muffin section. Thankfully, I checked the calorie count on the almond poppyseed muffin 4 pack before putting it in my basket.

Servings: 4. Calories per serving: 560.

(It wasn't just the almonds and the poppyseeds--the chocolate muffin was 540 calories.)

Why are we stuffing ourselves to death while others starve?
