Thanks for the "fat" article... I've been seeing research about this and had my suspicions for years, but also a funny feeling that certain powers-that-be would prefer it if that dialogue never happened. The American diet & lifestyle has been fairly unhealthy since the end of WWII, but only in the last 20-30 years has morbid obesity become so utterly ubiquitous....

(And while that article points specifically at food additives, I've seen other papers implicated a lot of hormone-mimicking chemicals in plastics as well as environmental pollutants like dioxins & PCBs... I really wish more research were being done for this instead of just accusing all obese people of being "greedy pigs" - appetite control is also a biological function that can become disordered - just look at conditions like Prader-Willi syndrome for an extreme example. There are days when I want to eat everything in sight and feel hungry no matter what I eat, and it can be hard to just sit on my hands. I imagine someone who is more stressed out would find it even more difficult.)
