Obesity & The Last Supper

Research finds a trend of painting larger portion sizes in the Last Supper.

Da Vinci​’s painting is the famous but there's 50+ other such paintings of the last 1,000 years. While the apostles' heads are the same and people are thin, the bread was 23% bigger in more modern paintings, the entrees 70% bigger. This means the trend started well before the modern obesity epidemic.
