    Perhaps, but let’s not turn that into an excuse for the obesity epidemic. It does not explain why the percentage of people who are obese is so high this decade compared to percentages decades ago. As my father told me when I had trouble controlling my weight, “I’ve never seen a fat person living in a concentration camp.”

    All disease is caused by teratogenic factors?

    You ever stop to wonder why none of this shit you find is found in peer reviewed journals?

    Interesting hypothesis you've there.


    Once again, your inability to comprehend written words comes into play and makes you look like the idiot you are.

    Still wondering about the point.

    It's not exactly news that the mother's health and well-being during pregnancy affects the unborn child profoundly. People have known that for a long time, and didn't need Salon to tell them.

    And while it's interesting that scientists have found more corroborating evidence, I'm still confused as to what the purpose of this thread is.

    Why did you change the meaning of my quote? I thought board rules prohibited editing that substantially changed the meaning of other peoples words.

    You are an idiot, otherwise you would know that I scoff at the whole hypothesis.

    It's your hypothesis. You're the one who forwarded it.

    Nobody else said anything of the sort.
