Curing Obesity Through Sterility
The website of the Pacific Northwest Medical Journal contains an article titled, "Curing Obesity through Sterility: California's Controversial Program Under the Microscope". According to this article San Francisco has a publicly funded program to allow obese men to get free vasectomies. The idea is to stop them breeding in order to eliminate the gene for fatness from the population. This cannot be real. I've never heard of such a program and can't imagine it getting funded. But if it's a hoax (which I assume it is), it's a curiously elaborate one. All the other articles on the site appear to be quite serious. Why go to so much trouble for one hoax article? When I did a search to find out who the PNMJ.org website was registered to, it listed KLAF Television in Shreveport, Louisiana as the owner. That doesn't really help explain anything.

Obesity does have some different causes, but in the US most can be related to insulin resistance/abuse. Dr. Ray Strand wrote a book called "Releasing Fat" that really describes the physical process of weight gain.

The basic idea is that high glycemic foods that spike blood sugar, inactivity, and lack of quality nutrition are the root causes of today's health epidemic.

He says that the best possible way to avoid or reverse the problem is eating low glycemic foods (closer to the source is better), 45 minutes of brisk but modest exercise, and quality nutritional supplements.

I hope this helps. smile
