Levelling off of the "Obesity Epidemic"?   posted by Razib @ 1/14/2010 12:03:00 AM

There's a lot of media buzz right now about a new report in JAMA on the empirical trends on prevalence of obesity in the United States.

The data in the paper above strongly implies that anti-fat bigotry is going to have disparate impact.
