Portion Sizes in 'Last Supper' Paintings Grew Over Time

snip -

Nutrition experts have analyzed the food depicted in some of the best-known paintings of the biblical Last Supper and found that the portion and plate sizes depicted in them increased substantially from older paintings to those painted more recently.


The findings suggest the trend of bigger plates and portions that has been noticed recently and linked to obesity may have been in the works for much longer, the researchers suggest.

Way, way south.
Yes, that painting has caused millions of people through the years to overeat and not exercise enough.

I guess that painting was the start to the end of personal responsibility. Check.
