jesus diaprovesThe International Journal of Obesity published a study today: over the past 1,000 years, we got used to eating 69% more grub from 66% larger plates with 22% more bread. Art Historians agree. 

Cornell University used head-to-plate ratios to compare our collective last night’s supper to the portions in 52 of the most famous Last Supper paintings. Yup, we’re gorging. What would Jesus do? Probably not super-size! |The Guardian|
