It has been demonstrated, the children of the most beautiful women, and most handsome men, often are quite plain. There is something in genetics which
prevents all humans from being "beautiful". In fact, humans prior to modern agriculture, generally were taller, stronger, and had larger brains. So
our current diet may in fact be dumbing us down, and unhealthier, therefore less attractive.
Society does place an unhealthy premium on good looks. Fat ugly people are not promoted, no matter how good a job they do. Look at Fox News, all their
reporters, especially the women, are selected based on their good looks. In general, with obesity and diabetes on the rise, Americans do not look as
good as the prior generation, and now the lifespan of Americans is decreasing.
I was certainly an ugly duckling outcast in high school. Yet, at my 40th high school reunion, many of the hottest babes back in the day, were giving
me hugs and kisses. So clearly they had set aside good looks as being all important.
