Being overweight is bad for the environment as well as your health, according to a study released today.
Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that overweight people were likely to be more responsible for carbon emissions than slim people because they consume more food and fuel.
The study blamed an increased demand for livestock production for meat, believed to be responsible for 20 per cent of all greenhouse gases due to the toxic methane emitted by cows.
They added that a higher dependency on cars was also a contributing factor.
I am surprised they aren't blaming all the pregnant women for having cravings. All I have to say is.. they always come up with something lol Next they will say that sneezing causes hurricanes on the other side of the world. lol
