With age often comes obesity - "A 30-year study finds that most adults - 9 out of 10 men, 7 out of 10 women - are likely to be or become overweight as they grow older..."

Interesting. I've been conducting my own 44-year study and have come to the same conclusion. Seriously, did somebody get paid to spend their entire career figuring out that when we're old we get fatter and lazier than we were when we were twenty?

"Our results, while not surprising, are worrisome," said Dr. Ramachandran Vasan, an associate professor at Boston University School of Medicine and lead author of the study. Well, again, no shit Sherlock. There's nothing new here, either. Carrying around extra pounds leads to a variety of problems, including diabetes, heart problems, etc. We knew all that already. Why is this news?
