It only makes sense that eating obesity causes obesity. But, are you aware of the amount of fat that you are eating when you eat chicken? Dr. Michael Greger tells us that “According to the USDA, a hundred years ago a serving of chicken used to only have 16 calories from fat. That’s half the calories of a brown rice cake. Now, one serving of chicken has over 200 fat calories, like eating a scoop of ice cream. The fat went from less than 2 grams, to 23 grams of animal fat per serving—twice the fat of ice cream.” If you’ve been eating boneless, skinless chicken breasts thinking you were going to lose weight, think again.

Does Eating Obesity Cause Obesity?
One reason that poultry intake has been associated with weight gain may be that chickens these days, are mostly fat. Up to three times more fat than protein. See now we confine animals, genetically manipulate them, pump them full of growth promoters, deny them exercise…
How fat have our chickens got? You’re not going to believe this. According to the USDA, a hundred years ago a serving of chicken used to only have 16 calories [from fat]. That’s half the calories of a brown rice cake. Now, one serving of chicken has over 200 fat calories, like eating a scoop of ice cream. The fat went from less than 2 grams, to 23 grams of animal fat per serving—twice the fat of ice cream. So now chicken has ten times more fat; ten times more calories—so that could well explain why chicken has been so tied to human abdominal girth, no viral explanation is necessary.
In fact the chickens themselves may be technically obese, raising the concern does eating obesity cause obesity in the consumer? A chicken carcass now contains two to three times the energy coming from fat compared with protein. Parents may think they’re feeding their children a low-fat product, as it was when they were kids, but are instead unknowingly feeding their children on a high-fat product. The cocktail of gene selection for fast weight gain, lack of exercise and high-energy food available 24 hours a day, is a simple and well-understood recipe for obesity in these birds.
Farm animals used to make DHA, the long chain omega 3 fatty acid important for the brain, but fast-growing animals fail to fully synthesize it in muscle. This reversal in fatty acid status in intensively-reared chickens is described as a most unusual new phenomenon. It is likely to be the result of genetic selection for fast growth out stripping the biosynthetic process.
To obtain the same amount of DHA from intensively reared chickens today as would have been obtained in the 1970s, one would be required to eat six whole chickens—that’s like 9000 calories. These researchers, at the Institute of Brain Chemistry, go as far as to suggest that this may be in part why we’ve seen skyrocketing human mental illness.
Although the intensification of chickens alone cannot be responsible for this rise in brain disorders, they consider it part of the package of changes in our food system that has ignored human nutrition.
