  1. I suggest this study is another pantload brought to you by agenda driven “experts”.

  2. I hear phthalates make penguins cry!
    They hurt the poor. They make it harder for polar bears to swim.
    They cause obesity. They cause asthma. They cause cancer.
    Phthalates hurt children. They kill puppies!

    Same old story: Pick a chemical, declare it “evil”, and through every accusation at it under the Sun. All research by environmental activists is “independent” and all research by industry is biased. If the FDA or CDC or WHO agrees with the environmentalists, they are heros. If they agree with industry, they are corrupt. Sigh.

  3. How about this. Talk about “junk science”.

    Obesity ‘Virus’ Spreads Like Common Cold, Scientists Say

    Obesity can be “caught” as easily as a common cold from other people’s coughs, sneezes and dirty hands, scientists said Monday.

    The condition has been linked to a highly-infectious virus which causes sniffles and sore throats.

    Nikhil Dhurandhar, an associate professor at The Pennington Biomedical Research Center, in Baton Rouge, La., said the virus, known as AD-36, infects the lungs then whisks around the body, forcing fat cells to multiply and also causing sore throats.
