Those damm Canadians:
Ohhh... I get it. Spam is annoying, unless it's our healthy lifestyle message that is part of the spam, then we'll consider it benefitial and you should be forced to see it. I can't wait for the next bill in Congress which gives the government the right to spam anyone in the country with "approved messages" touting the new food pyramid because it will help the country fight obesity.
So what does this study say about all the people who are bombarded with penis enlargement advertisments and emails about porn? If we could only control what went into spam... unfortunately we don't live in that scientifically controlled world, we live in this real one. Why don't scientists study things that would actually benefit people in the real world?
Also, somebody needs a science lesson. The BMI does NOT distinguish between fat and muscle in its determination of obesity, meaning people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Barry Bonds both reside in the obese category.Post a Comment
