I’ve been reading lots of Australian news this week. Came across this:

Everything makes you fat.
This would seem the inevitable conclusion coming out of the international conference on obesity being held in Sydney this week.
McMansions make you fat. Not fidgeting makes you fat.
Cheap food makes the world fat, excepting those who are starving, of course.
Bad playgrounds make kids fat along with TV ads.
And finally scientific confirmation of what many of us have always insisted big bones make you fat (or in my case just big boned).
Weight gain, it appears, is an extremely complex carbohydrate business with no end of mitigating factors.
