The United States of Fat.

I read the first sentence of this article and couldn't go on.

Has the world gone insane? Virii don't make you obese. Metabolisms don't make you obese.

Math makes you obese.

If you take in more than you put out you will gain weight. Thats all there is to it.

If you fill a balloon with 1 cup of water, and pour out 3/4 cup of water, guess what, your balloon is 1/4 cups of water heavier than you started with.

How is your body any different?

Want to find out if you are my previous post.

I am flubbergasted!

If you read the beginning and quit you should have continued to read to the end of the article.

"So far, tests of human antibodies have linked one human adenovirus to human obesity, according to Greenway. Right now, screening large groups of people for antibodies to all human adenoviruses is a “daunting task,” Greenway writes. He calls for better blood tests that could do that job and pave the way for a vaccine.

Even if such a vaccine is created, calories would still count. Virus or no virus, you’ll likely gain weight if you eat more calories than you burn off."
