no wonder you are fat

Post by dead man walking » Fri Oct 02, 2015 10:12 am

chemicals--like pesticides and flame retardants--prescription drugs, and changes in gut bacteria have messed us up:
A given person, in 2006, eating the same amount of calories, taking in the same quantities of macronutrients like protein and fat, and exercising the same amount as a person of the same age did in 1988 would have a BMI that was about 2.3 points higher. In other words, people today are about 10 percent heavier than people were in the 1980s, even if they follow the exact same diet and exercise plans.

I always wonder about the self-reporting on these. Pollan's damning critique of nutritional science in 'In Defense of Food' didn't leave me very trusting. Fascinating if it's accurate.*

various chemicals can mimic, mess with women's hormones. that effect was mentioned.

guys are more likely to be pussies, these days, which may explain the effect on young males.
