“As long as the focus of obesity prevention and treatment is only on food, nothing will change. There are a gazillion weight loss diets available. Some make some sense, others are completely absurd. And when you try enough of these diets you are likely to lose weight, for a while. But in most cases the weight comes back after a few years, even if you stick with your diet or exercise plan. The reason is that in most cases overweight is not just caused by diet. Environmental pollution is a big reason, as are antibiotics as I described above. Many pharmaceuticals cause weight gain, as does the fluoride in our water supply.”
