New theory: CO2 makes you fat
Danish researchers are speculating whether our large emissions of CO2, e.g. from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, have a surprising ‘CO2 effect’ – making humans hungrier and fatter. (Photo: Colourbox)
No, this is not 1 April – and this is not an April Fool’s hoax.
Mad as it may sound, Danish researchers have announced a theory that may not only explain why people all over the world are getting fatter and fatter, but also warn of the serious consequences for life on Earth of continued pollution of the atmosphere by CO2 emissions.
In itself, the theory is quite simple: CO2 contributes to making us fat.
