We’re not kidding. Some researchers actually published a study warning that thinking is a health risk, because it can lead to obesity.
Sometimes, we come across a precious gem like this article, and it renews our resolve to combat the ubiquitous health mania that has so corrupted our world.
If you are a devoted follower of FORCES, you are clearly a thinking person. You also must have a few pounds to lose, at least according to this article.
Here are the comments from the main author of the study in question, referenced in the article at the link below:
"Caloric overcompensation following intellectual work, combined with the fact we are less physically active when doing intellectual tasks, could contribute to the obesity epidemic currently observed in industrialised countries. This is a factor that should not be ignored, considering that more and more people hold jobs of an intellectual nature."
We’re sure he’s quite thin. In fact, the article gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "thin research." There’s so much to mock here, one doesn’t even know where to begin.
Read it, laugh at it, and have a snack.
