LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – This observation was published in the Journal of Obesity that as we have learned to pile more on our plates, so have the artists depicting the last supper.

Researchers at Cornell University studied fifty two of the most famous paintings of the last supper and found the main course for Jesus and his disciples has increased by nearly 70% over the past 1,000 years. Experts say this is a sad reflection of art imitating life.
