More Obesity Intrigue

Posted by brightcoast on October 22, 2008

It seems the media is infatuated with stories relating to the mystique of obesity lately. This article flirts with the idea that obese mothers may have an impact on the political views of their developing children. I was disappointed that the article didn’t conclude one way or the other how exactly the hormones would affect the political development. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. However, considering that allegedly 1/3 of the population of pregnant mothers is considered obese, I wouldn’t be surprised if their progeny was equally split politically, and any resulting slant one way or the other was merely resultant of a natural fluctuation in the statistical measure.
