Guardian Unlimited | Science | How ‘toxic’ diet breeds obesity
Children in the west are principally becoming obese because their diets play havoc with their hormones, according to a new study by scientists. Robert Lustig, a paediatrician at the Children’s Hospital of the University of California in San Francisco, said: “Our current western food environment has become highly insulinogenic, as demonstrated by its increased energy density, high-fat content, high glycaemic index, increased fructose composition, decreased fibre, and decreased dairy content.”

I don’t think this news is any surprise.
