I doubt the foods we are getting obese on are pollinated by bees.
Undoubtedly. I also question that 1/3 of all food must be pollinated by bees. Are we talking physical mass, physical weight, caloric value, monitary value? People like to spout the 1/3 of all food claims needing bees but are they simply parroting someone else?
If I were to assume the only pollinators are honey bees and if I were to assume that all honey bees were to die, I'm having trouble coming up with ANY significant food eaten by the masses which would no longer be pollinated.
For example, almonds are a crop, which if were no longer pollinated would be devastating to almond growers. However, how much of the diet of the obese masses do almonds play a part of? True, they may not get to eat their deep fried, sugar encrusted, almond snack while watching TV. But, if they couldn't get almonds, would they their bodies know it?
What am I missing here, what food would make a difference to the masses, if it was not pollinated?
