108. Saw this Frontline show
a while back, I'm going from memory here, one group of Native Americans had been fully Westernized, McDonald's, Wal-Mart, the whole deal, another group were living traditionally. First group, fat and illness, second group-normal weight and healthy. Both from same tribe, same genetics, different habits.

Occasionally I meet people from Europe for my work, and one of the things almost all of them say, taking me aside, 'you have SO many fat people here!'
