"The analysis, conducted by Pereira of Boston's Children's Hospital, was based on a 15-year follow-up..."

A study no doubt funded by John and Jane Sucker Taxpayer.

I don't agree with this one. I think getting OLD and eating lots of fast food makes one fat.

I was easily able to eat 5 Big Mac's from McDonalds during the David Letterman monologue when I was in college, and I STILL couldn't gain weight!

Ahhhhhh, the wonders of our research dollars at work. This has gotta be America.

FIVE BigMacs, Gryn?!?!?!?!

Dammit, boy! Was your cholesterol level hitting quadruple digits?

so much for my Revoltuionary Diet Book:

"Eat Fast Food and sit on you fat ass and lose weight"

Damn scientist.

Well, Im glad someone figured out how people get fat. Who would have known fast food and television were working together against us?
2003-03-09 08:40:00 AM  
I can't wait for the relase of the study corrolating thirst with a lack of fluid. That should be a real eye opener as well.

Great concept...catchy title. You'll be a millionaire! Need an editor?

2003-03-09 08:43:23 AM  
stupid idiots combine fatty foods with tv and try to spin it as something new. how bout this... eating fast food and exercising at the same time will make you fat! how many tax dollars were wasted on such a study? morons...

Korzeniowski: That'd be the submitter, not the mods. For example, there were 4 headlines like that yesterday alone on TotalFark.

I wonder how much the Wunderkinds paid for this study?Thats right we did, the tax payer.
2003-03-09 08:45:06 AM  
So how long before Jesse Jackson starts yammering around about how the study is racist?

Jesse Jackson rant in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .

Buncha crap. I've been doing just that for years now and can't get over 115 unless I'm pregnant.

Whites who eat fast food more than twice a week and also spend at least 21/2 hours a day watching television have triple the risk of both obesity and abnormal glucose control, compared to those who eat out once or less and watch no more than an hour and a half of TV.

Who the fark watches 21 and half hours of TV?

Korzeniowski: That'd be the admins and you're right they can and do alter some headlines
2003-03-09 09:32:45 AM  
This really is ridiculous.
2003-03-09 09:48:45 AM  
As obvious as this might sound, there actually is little firm scientific data to prove the point, especially against fast food. But now a large study released Saturday shows just how bad super-sized burgers and nonstop tube time can be for one's health.

At least it was only a large study and not a super size.

I'm gonna have to agree with InternetSecurityGuard. While most of these studies are stupid and pointless remeber this article 5 days ago That said recycling is actually harder on the environment than burning garbabge is? I'm not saying it's nessisarily TRUE, it's something eveybody 'knows' so didn't check it. Some times we have to check basic assumptions, otherwise we'd still think the world was flat :).
2003-03-09 10:52:49 AM  
Doesn't this type of study crop up about every two days or so?
2003-03-09 10:54:50 AM  
BorgHunter, I think I'm getting a chubby.
2003-03-09 11:08:07 AM  
Chubby! Bwah ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaa!

Good 'un, Young_Fart.

I dunno, but it looks like 21/2 to me, which would be 10 1/2.

a fattie thread with only 30 comments. We're slipping.

My husband used to be able to eat a few large pizzas in one sitting and not gain weight. Then at the age of 26 he started gaining.

It all depends on a person's metabolism. For me that would hold true. I need to exercise and/or reduce carbs.

Hmmm.... Can I still play EverQuest all day and eat taco bell?

"may promote overeating" what the hell is your point?
