The authors of the graph (and the blogs) claim it shows that countries whose populations eat more slowly have less obesity. I took one look at that graph and said "Bullshit".
The points are scattered all over, and if there is a correlation between the two factors, it's a very weak one. To prove this, I re-created the graph in Open Office by approximating their data points. I then did a logarithmic fit of the data, which produces a graph that is very close to the original. So far, so good_
When you fit lines to data, there are ways to measure how well that line describes the data, by using something called the Coefficient of determination (R-squared). This value ranges from 1, which means the line fits perfectly, all the way down to zero, which means the line is basically arbitrarily drawn.
If you look at my graph, you'll see that the R^2 value of this line is 0.18. That means the fit is very weak and should pretty much be ignored. Even though the line draws your eye and makes you believe the relationship, there is very little correlation here.
Now, this doesn't mean their conclusion is wrong. There very well may be a link between speed of eating and obesity. However making that inference from this data would (and should) get you laughed out of any serious medical or scientific meeting. This is a case of bad graphing, bad reporting, and plenty of blame to go around.
