from nydailynews.com: According to a shocking new graphic from the Centers for Disease Control, a typical fast-food burger weighed just 3.9 ounces in the 1950s. Now, it’s 12 ounces — three times larger. An average order of fries has grown from 2.4 ounces to 6.7 ounces. Soft drinks are even worse. Today, people drink 42-ounce sodas, up from the comparatively skimpy 7-ounce pours people got at fast-food restaurants in the ’50s.
