    You know I dont blame sugar or anything, I think it's just evolution making us bigger, and soon we'll become giants as we increase in size, of course our joints will grow to support the weight. WOOOHOOOO so lets bring on the sugar drinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I recently saw an article indicating Chinese research had discovered a bacteria that essentially caused obesity, at least in a significant number of people.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out America's weight problems are due to a grossly high-fat/sugar diet and sedentary lifestyle. You drink sodas, primarily eat high fat foods and watch TV and sit in an office chair most of the day - guess what? You are going to be overweight.

    Genetics play role in obesity and digestion of carbohydrates...

    Works 90% of the time...

    Study: Gastric Bypass Procedure Reverses Type 2 Diabetes
    March 31, 2014 ~ A new study at the Cleveland Clinic shows that bariatric surgery reverses Type 2 diabetes 90 percent of the time, meaning patients have normal blood sugar levels, sometimes immediately afterwards, and they no longer have to take insulin or other medications to control the illness.

    Naturally occurring sugar—which gives fruit, some veggies, and milk their sweet taste—is perfectly healthy. It's our dependency on concentrated sugar which is the issue. We won't evolve on this dude. You are basically saying, "WOOOHOO Let's keep drinking excessive alcohol because evolution will fix that problem for me! I'll grow a super liver"

    You have a lot to learn about Sugar, HMO's, GMO's, MSG's, etc, etc, etc

    Historically we spent all summer eating high nutrition veggies because they were everywhere. And in the Winter we ate meat. It was lot's of nutrition, little fat and lot's of work to get that nutrition.

    Today it's lot's of fat and little nutrition and ZERO work to get it. Nearly all Americans don't get the nutrition they need yet they eat more than ever. Almost all Americans are also Chronically dehydrated.
