Discrimination drove them to it! Ask the Science.
I know–you’re probably thinking “some combination of too much food and not enough exercise,” that’s what makes people fat.
But Science says you’re wrong!
“Experiencing discrimination” is a major factor in obesity (https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/discrimination-may-disrupt-brain-gut-talk-raising-risk-obesity-study-f-rcna118558). Science says so, and Science is always right! Unfortunately, the article from NBC News does not make it clear who performed this survey.
Next question: what do we do about it?
Government action, of course! Another job for government! Get rid of discrimination “through policy changes”!
“More government” is the answer to every human woe. Government policies based on Science: could anything be more wise? More certain of success? No way!
Now, thanks to Science, we have discovered that when people are feeling low, they reach for comfort foods.
Uh, wait a minute… Did we already know that?
