Fatter, or Just Older?

Charles Sizemore: We’ve all seen the headlines. America is facing an “obesity epidemic,” we are told. But are Americans really getting fatter? Or are they simply getting older?

Well, clearly they are getting older on average. But my experience suggest that they are also getting fatter. When I look at my children's middle school class photos and compare them to my own at the same grade, there is definitely a size difference.
