From John Jones:

Re: At least 8 genes tied to obesity, all in brain (Dec. 16): The search for the obesity gene is not about finding a gene for getting fat. All animals have those genes. It’s about justifying particular social eating regimes by declaring as ill the people that don’t fit in. It’s a pointless stereotyping, for there is no standard eating regime.
