The connection between food insecurity and obesity

There is a very clear connection between food insecurity and obesity. When people do no thave enough money to purchase food they tend to purchase foods with high calorie content and low nutrition value as these foods are inexpensive and filling. Also, when the body sometimes has food and sometimes does not, it changes physiologically and stores more fat- a compensatory mechanism to prepare for starvation.
