From the "this is why you're fat" department: the Centers for Disease Control created this handy little infographic showing in simple English and modern hieroglyphics how our asses have grown in proportion to the serving sizes of our burgers, fries and sodas.

This gives new meaning to the term "belly-buster," eh?

Anyway, the infographic web page also contains CDC links on how to maintain a healthy weight by controlling your portions, eating healthy and counting calories.
