So you know that idea about how we're all fatter because we're sedentary and yadda yadda?

Yeah, total bullshit.

As physical activity expenditure has not declined over the same period that obesity rates have increased dramatically, and daily energy expenditure of modern man is in line with energy expenditure in wild mammals, it is unlikely that decreased expenditure has fuelled the obesity epidemic.

We are as active as people in 3rd world countries, as frigging WILD ANIMALS, and MORE active than we were 25 years ago.

Bottom line, obesity epidemic ideas a utter bullshit.
