12. What I said was "very little obesity is genetically determined" I know that some weight issues ARE
genetically determined. I meant no insensitivity to those with that problem. I've had two friends over the years who appear to gain weight when eating low-starch, low-fat foods, and that in moderation. I apologize if I offended you, but I think there is a certain type of conservative personality (many are ardent conservative Christians) who have real obesity issues. I was pointing out there might be a conncection, as that's the only sensual pleasure they allow themselves.
