    So, given the worldwide obesity "epidemic" shouldn't someone be looking for a way of telling them to slow down, take it easy, have a beer etc.

    Probably not the reason for the thread but hey, it's a thought.

    I've had a hypothesis around dysfunction of lipid metabolism for a while now, but dismissed it given certain mito evidence... Now having another think.
