Genetically caused obesity

Genetically caused obesity
Obesity
Euphorbia Obesa. Our species is homo sapiens, not homo obesa. We are supposed to be rational, sapient, but we are also good at rationalizing and denial. Many would like to believe that obesity is genetically caused and they have no control over caloric balance. But the current pandemic of obesity can not have been genetic because, unless there is severe environmental selection, gene frequencies change very slowly over thousands of years.
