When I read about obesity causing global warming I wasn’t surprised. After all, look at how hard airlines try to shed a few dozen pounds from an airplane just to save weight — which in turn will save fuel. All that effort can be counteracted by a single passenger who is overweight. Let alone a plane where 30% of the passengers are obese.
Now it seems that it is not just the obese people that fly causing a problem. Apparently these people also consume 18% more food than their "non-obese" counterparts.
Those of us looking to save the planet for future generations may be able to do our part by just eating less.
