No, I know many intelligent people who are overweight
Does anyone else share my impression, that fat people usually seem less intelligent than slim people.
When you think of the people you know, aren't most of those you'd class as "intelligent", slim, not fat?
Erm, There are many factors that contribute to obesity; you should read the thread in its entirety. I am curious, what other things?
This might be because dumb people don't have the sense not to eat unhealthy junk food. So they eat it, and it makes them get obese. Whereas smart people, realise how unhealthy junk food is. So they don't eat it, and stay slim.
If so, then the epidemic of obesity sweeping the USA, has an obvious explanation - the US population is getting dumber. This results partly from the failure of the US educational system. Plus other things, that can't be mentioned here.
Could the point be this - obesity shows Natural Selection in action. The fat fools die, the slim smarts survive?
