Weighty Issues

The Obesity Myth
The biggest evidentiary problem for those who insist there is a strong causal link between increasing weight and heart disease is that deaths from heart disease have been plunging at precisely the same time that obesity rates have been skyrocketing.

While I have been losing weight lately, that's a side-effect of better eating habits and more exercise. It's not my priority.

Revisiting Weighty Matters

Great Googly Moogly!

Did anyone actually bother to follow the damned link and read the article on The Obesity Myth?

From the responses, it doesn't sound like it. Almost everyone zoomed in to refute the single paragraph I quoted, but didn't mention anything beyond that. None of the other studies, none of the other conclusions, none of the logic and reasoning that lead to them.

I didn't chose that as a summary, gang.
