CHICAGO, Illinois (Reuters) — When it comes to heart disease, being fit may be more important than being thin, according to a study of more than 900 women published Tuesday.

“Our study shows that the lack of physical fitness is a stronger risk factor for developing heart disease than being overweight or obese,” said Timothy Wessel, a physician at the University of Florida who headed up the research.

Fascinating that their study group was a group of women, isn’t it? Particularly because more men suffer from heart disease than women… Once again: can we all just start talking about what all this obesity panic is about? It has about 2% to do with health. Just like invading Iraq had about 2% to do with terrorism.

Can somebody just do an Al Gore and say, “The reason we didn’t intervene in the genocide of 2 million people in Rwanda is because we have no economic interests there”?

That would be great.
