Newsflash: Babies Are Supposed To Be Fat, Duh!

Babies given anti-obesity drugs in the womb

Not the story (as absurd as it may be) that concerns me here so much as the picture, designed to mislead. You know how easy it is to worry naive mothers out there. No way is that a genuinely obese baby. I mean, come on, they’re supposed to be chubby. They need the fat. You put your baby on a ‘diet’ and its brain won’t develop properly because, guess what, your brain is in a large part made of fat/cholesterol. In fact the prevalence of this myth that cholesterol is inherently evil could be tied to rising rates of alzheimer’s disease – see here.
