Before you worry too much about putting on those holiday pounds, consider this: We’re not the only species with weight issues.
This is a real intriguing observation that will open up some really interesting research. A lot of animals are gaining weight at rates not seen in past years. Even lab animals whose diet is controlled and well-known.
While there may be many different reasons, it is possible that there is a major one, perhaps the same one that has produced obesity in humans.
Perhaps it is due to endocrine disruptors such as Bisphenol A, something I wrote about before.Maybe it is something else.
So watch out as this observation is examined by many, many other researchers.
