”[…] a study of twins […] established conclusively […] that genes play a major role in body weight […] Whether raised together or apart, each twin’s body mass index […] was nearly identical” "About 6 percent of Americans were obese in the 1950s, […] The obesity rate for adults rose to 25 percent in the 1970s, and was about 35 percent in the most recent government statistics." Source: New York Times Since the BMIs of obese people is higher, and non genetic differences explain a negligible part of the variability in BMI, according to the conclusive twin study, it must be concluded that obesity-related genes are spreading in the population, which can only be explained with a drastic difference in fertility, mortality or both in favor of obese people. In short: differences in BMI are mostly genetic, 6 times more people, as a proportion, are obese now than 50 years ago, hence obesity genes must be 6 times more common.
