I honestly don't think it was all that bad that you make out of it. In fact, that is probably one of the most popular articles on my site from the facebook likes. There were a few people in the...

Alex spent 2 degrees and 3 years in science, and he have never once heard this term used. So we are all wrong and I obviously made up the word to skew my article.
Thanks! And you made some...

Here is the first linkof the search: http://www.lbl.gov/Education/ELSI/research-main.html
It took me one second to click. A lot less that it took you to write about your 2 degrees...

Type "basics science research" in google. And count how many hits you get.
I don't really care tobe honest and most people won't. English is my third language and I would worry more if I was...

And that is the hardest part. Humans are more influenced by anecdotes and personal experiences. Stats and data doesn't make an impact on our brains. In medicine, it...

This is one of the most common arguments against science or an evidence-based approach. How true or how wrong is this statement?. This article is apt for this forum.
All I care about are results...
Where were you when we discussed the same thing with the author Phillip on Facebook?
He just couldn't admit that in trained it may be different. And recruitment is only part of the story as you...
Thanks everyone for all the discussions. I have PM'ed a couple of people so things might be a bit more cooler. It is better to close this thread I feel.
Relax. Why are you getting so emotional? I maybe wrong and this is not my idea either. When you write using caps lock, it means you are shouting at top of your lungs. I hope you know that.
I am not sure what you are saying. All that caps lock in your words doesn't make your point more right.
And read my conclusion again if you think that I wrote that genetics argument is just a way...
[/I][/I][/I]Your emotionally charged comments repeatedly saying the same thing tell me one thing: And as you wrote you are overweight and you just can't admit that there is a genetic component that...
Here is a radio talk show by Tara Parker-Pope on NPR about her Fat Trap article ( basically the genetics of obesity). They also talk to Dr. Frank Arthur (founder and former director of the George...
Here is short interview with Dr. Arya Sharma - one of the leading obesity experts. He talks exactly the stuff that this thread is all wrong about. The mentality of lacking will power, eat less, work...
I think everybody knows that. Hippocrates wrote this 2000 years back. And it hasn't changed anything still.
The question is why are some people being obese while some staying...
Nope. You are missing the point.
Do you know why the federal goals for any weight loss program is a meager 5-7%? Do you know why“success” in weight loss treatments is a weight loss of >=5% of...
I had a lot data when I was writing the article. Just don't remember most of it now. And in developing countries it is low too.
As I said when they say obesity is climbing...
I am still waiting forthe answer to the first question.
And about you rpersonal experience: This is called the availability bias. Skewing the frequency of things because one event...
Here is a recent article on the very same issue in New york ( the fat trap) times which was very controversial because it basically just said what I wrote:...
If we agree thatparental upbringing, child-environment, and so forth are all affecting then you we have to admit that the peoplewho are on the higher BMI are greatly affected by these. If all these...
And I am not trying to say that if we take these obese people and put them back in the stone age, they wouldn’t lose weight. They would lose weight, but they will still be fat, although less fat.
We just don't have any data. But we clearly know from writings that we had obesity even at the times of Hippocrates and Galen.
If you are genetically predisposed to obesity, you put on a lot of...
Depression, anorexia are examples about how finally it is a battle between higher cognitive signals and the biological drive. These are exceptions (deviating the norm) where the stimulus is so strong...
So lean people who lack self control are not getting obese because they all turn to drugs, promiscuity and so forth. I hope you can check yourself and see the slippery slope you are...
Your answer is the typical response. I used to think along the same lines.
So you think people who are obese lacks responsiblty, self control or have a common psychological trait...
I am not sure what you are saying. But it is pretty simple. You look at twin studies and look at the genetic contribution.
If there wasn't large genetic component or this was as multi-factorial...
