This is a great example of why you should never trust an infographic. This one is grossly, negligently misleading. You see, the size of a burger, for example, grew from 4oz to 12oz. It grew by a factor of 3. So why is it that the graphic for it shows it like 27 times bigger? Well, they started with a measure of weight, which is a function of volume, in three dimensions. Then they plotted that value along one dimension, the y axis. Then they scaled the rest of the graphic proportionally to that.

So if a perfectly cubic burger had actually gotten twice as tall, and stayed the same proportions, it's volume (and thus weight), would have grown by a factor of 8. So then it would be 8 times as tall in this "infographic", which means they would have drawn it as though it were actually 512 times as large as it used to be.

This is a disgrace. The CDC should be publicly shamed for this.

And I haven't even mentioned the worst part. The don't provide any citation for the data behind this graphic anywhere on the site promoting it.

The fact that people aren't noticing the glaring flaws is probably a great example of confirmation bias.
