IMHO, the reasons for the American "obesity" claims reach far and wide, but to me, those "thrifty genotypes" amount to people simply being
"thrifty" and going to places like McDonlad's, Wendy's, BurgerKing, etc., and taking advantage of those "thrifty" $1 value buys: Double
Cheesburger for a $1, Chicken Sandwich for $1, etc., and don't forget that side order of fries, too.
Eat right, execise regularly, and gentics aside, we'll all be ok.
I think this 'scientific' theory is a bit too much when trying to explain obesity, but thats my opinion anyhow. Its all relative.
