    Some unusual reasons for obesity

    Maybe other people knew about this, but the possible reasons Hank presents in his video on obesity came as a surprise to me.

    I am banking that the environmental pollutants factor is a huge one.

    I love how he spent 10 seconds telling us what the real problem is, and passed off a lot of controversial stuff with some witty and boring banter for the remaining 11 minutes and 49 seconds.

    That was interesting and informative. I think I'll check out some of the other videos as well. If Hank isn't a teacher, he should be.
    Thanks for posting this

    For those who don't have 12 minutes to spare: less sleep, AC, not smoking, industrial chemicals, prenatal effects, older mothers, the bacteria in your gut.

    Valid points but Hank's voice is very annoying.

    I've heard all those before, but just had to say I'm in love with his brother. In that sort of I want to be him when I grow up way.

    Well exercise and diet have been covered by hundreds of people, this video was about the more outlying factors that may be contributing to obesity.
