    Yes, thanks for sharing that. They mention hormones, antibiotics in food, pesticides and flame retardants as possible influencing factors, but ignore the 'gorilla in the room' of the US food supply, high fructose corn syrup, which has been linked to a number of metabolic changes, and which no other country on Earth uses as generously as the US does.

    When I was a child I was seriously told cocain was a great weight loss drug. Granted growing up right outside of New York in the mid 90’s probably had something to do with it.
